Weekend Wisdom: What God Gave Us
Here are scriptures to help you deal with the panic that is gripping our country.
Yes, we were given self-control. That is why people are buying up toilet paper.
Am I panicked over this situation – no.
I am living my life as normal, getting up stumbling across the hall and working my virtual logistics job, walking across the yard to get the mail, and going to the grocery store and the drug store.
All will be well because even though the Corona virus is in the air – God is STILL on the throne.
He’s got this.
He knew about COVID-19 and all the other germs, bacteria and viruses before He created the heavens and earth.
So stay calm and remember what Jesus (God the Son) said:
33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”John 16:33
English Standard Version
Yes indeed, He overcame the world by dying on the cross and rising from the grave 3 days later.
There is no need to panic, just take appropriate precautions…and quit hoarding the toilet paper.
Now I am off to the grocery store.
