Coronavirus - English

Coronavirus

What can a Christian (follower of Jesus) do about the actual situation that is occurring around the world? I have heard of people that are so worry and that is affecting their mental health and maybe even their physical health, and also heard of people that don’t worry about anything. What, The Word of God has taught me about bad situations happening around me.

1 – TO LIVE IN PEACE

Psalm 91:1-2, Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of The Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

• Our safety relies on God.
• Can we live in Peace? – YES
• God has the last word about our lives. This is my motto this year. My trust is in God. It doesn’t matter what I see in the news, what the doctors says or how I feel my trust remains in God. If God says YES, it is a yes, and if God says NO, it is a no. He sees the future and I don’t, and that is why I’m going to live my life in peace and tranquility.

2 – TO PREPARE

Proverbs 22:3 – The prudent see danger and take refuge but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

If the news said that a hurricane with a 200 miles wind is coming my way, be sure I’m going to prepare. I’m going to be in peace YES because I trust God, but yes, IT IS BIBLICAL to be prepare.

• We are soldiers in a spiritual army. God has given us weapons and we have to use them. – Some of these weapons to fight our spiritual wars are: Prayer, The Word of God, Fasting, Worship, Gratefulness, Faith and more. Jesus used the Word to defend himself. He said It is written. We have an example to follow. Look for Bible Verses that speak about God promises and pray against situations around you with those verses. In this case look for verses about plagues and read what the Bible says about it and let us use those verses to fight for our families, friends, neighbors, nations, etc.
• Listen to the news and follow the medical advice you hear or read. For example – Wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth if you are coughing or sneezing, no kisses, hand greetings and hugs. Use hand sanitizer, try not to touch your face and when you have to touch it wash your hands first. Teach your children about this.
• Fill your car with gasoline, have non perishable food, water, flashlights, first aid kit and other similar things in case of emergencies.
