THE UNKNOWN

April 4, 2020

The world has been hit with a pandemic virus which is called, “Coronavirus” or Covid-19. Though this virus has been around for years, this particular strand is said to come from an infected bat in Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, located in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, China. This virus has spread from central China to 204 countries and territories around the world, and as of April 4, 2020, there have been 1.134,418 cases and 60,115 deaths globally reported. Additionally, these statistics are changing every hour.

Because this is a new strand of the virus there is a lot of unknown information about it. This unknown has led to intense fear among the world population, a fluctuating global stock market, major global recession, the travel industry at an all-time low, closing down of all non-essential businesses resulting in the loss of employment for millions of persons globally, and a shortage of food and personal hygiene items. Also, vacations are being canceled affecting the tourism industry, schools and colleges are closed, the world of entertainment is shut-down, the sports season suspended, sports events and conferences canceled, and most important churches have been instructed to shut down.

Amid all these uncertainty believers have God and His Word to sustain us. Furthermore, during this time, we are hearing about the passing of fellow believers which causes us to mourn; however, our assurance is that we will meet them again and they are now in the presence of the Lord.

I am feeling like I want to blog about all of the changes taking place, but since things appear fluid I will probably wait until things settle down. I am finding many of the topics or titles I would use for these blogs would be similar in content because they are all expressions of the time in which we live. Some of these titles are “World Turned Upside Down,” “Preview of Things to Come,” “It All Came Tumbling Down,” “Restricted but Not Constrained,” “Stage Set,” “A New Norm,” and “Living in Daunting Times.” At this time, I am following the instructions that Naomi gave Ruth in Ruth 3:18, “Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall.”

Let me close this blog with these two things. First, as kingdom believers, God has given us power and authority to intercede on behave of the world. So, as we go thru this time of unknown if you are in doubt on areas that need prayer I recommend these seven areas:
1. Religion (Church, Ministries, and Religious Leaders)
2. Family and Marriages (Children, Youth, Adults, and Seniors)
3. Education (Schools, Universities, and Colleges)
4. Business (The Marketplace)
5. Government (Locally, Nationally, and Internationally)
6. Media (The Press, Television, Internet and Social Networking)
7. Arts, Entertainment and Sports

Secondly, most of us know Proverbs 3:5-8 using the King James Version but today I am going to share it from The Message Bible, “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health; your very bones will vibrate with life!” Be blessed, and be safe.
