WILLING AND OBEDIENT

July 18, 2020

I was in prayer, praying about Covid-19 and asking God to eradicate it, and while doing this, the words of this scripture found in Isaiah 1:19 resounded in my spirit, “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” The Holy Spirit began to minister to me believers all over the world are praying this prayer, but for it to manifest, we must be willing and obedient to follow the instructions. For everyone these instructions are not spiritual, they are practical for we can’t be like people that pray and ask God to keep us healthy; yet, we go outside in a winter snowstorm improperly dressed

This week citizens in Utah met at the Utah County commission meeting to object to their children wearing a face mask when they return to school. In that small cramp meeting room, these citizens refused to distance themselves socially and the majority of them did not have on a mask. Unfortunately, in a couple of weeks, these citizens will probably realize Covid-19 is real if there is an outbreak of case among those that attended this meeting.

The news also shared the story of a former game show host who tweeted, “everyone is lying (CDC, media, and Democrats) about COVID-19.” On the next day following the tweet, he changed his tune because his son tested positive for the virus. Furthermore, this is not new because the news is repeatedly reporting cases of individuals who became sick with Covid-19 after attending a function where they were not socially distancing or wearing a mask.

In Luke 16:19 – 31, there is a story of a rich man and a beggar. The rich man ends up in a place of torment and the poor man in the bosom of Abraham. When the rich man realizes his fate as compared to the beggar, he requested Abraham to send a messenger to his relatives and warn them about ending in a similar position as him. Abraham gives him this response, “They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” This story reflects the hardness of man’s heart and their unwillingness to listen to wise counsel from multiple sources, which unfortunately ends with fatal consequences.

If people continue not to follow the guidelines established by the medical doctors and leading scientists and if they believe Covid-19 is part of fake news, the pandemic will remain. We cannot function like the people that lived during the times of the judges where everyone did what was right in their own eyes, for like them, we will suffer the consequences for our misguided actions. All we have to do is do our part and be willing and obedient to instructions, and then God can do His part, heal the land.
