Insights: Coronovirus March 22, 2020

David wrote a comforting Psalm, when he was captured by the Philistines in Gath and  was tempted to be afraid:

2 My enemies would hound me all day, For there are many who fight against me, O Most High.
3 Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.
4 In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me? (Ps. 56:2-4 NKJ)

I like the acrostic about fear. Fear is – False Evidence Appearing Real.  The temptation of fear is there, but the overwhelming character of God helps me see my fear for what it is: Satan’s temptation to put my eyes on the current situation, rather than God’s eternal character.

Be like David – trust in the Lord – even if you come down with the symptoms of coronovirus or the virus itself. God is not caught off guard and He will sustain you, even if you are in the grasps of the virus’ pull. We will trust in the Lord!
