Our world today is different than it ever has been in my lifetime. We are told to stay at a distance from others, for fear that we never know who could be carrying sickness that the world is struggling with. It is easy to become overwhelmed and filled with fear as everything around us is telling us we should be. It is right to be responsible and smart in these times, but not to act irrationally out of fear of the unknown.
Questions for further thought:
1. In what ways have our world’s present situation affected your daily life?
2. What are you doing to guard yourself from panic and fear?
Challenge: Now more than ever it is important to spend time with God on a daily basis. We are facing many more unknowns today than we ever have before. All the more reason for us to focus and draw our strength from God and His promises rather than what the news is telling us. Get in the Word and rely on His strength today.
