The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;
I wonder if we have been good stewards of God’s work. The work that he has entrusted us to do; to take care of, to bloom. The earth is shaken and it’s people are in an uproar. What does the bible say about panic, fear, and uncertainty? Do you have a biblical view of the events and pandemic that is taken place around us? Or are you just waiting for it to pass so things can go back to normal? What if things will not return to the way they were before this pandemic? Perhaps this is the time and season where the Lord is using what is happening around us to shake the whole earth. Sometimes the Lord will use a crisis to birth a miracle. If there is anyone who can help us, save us, correct us; It is the God of heaven and earth, the creator of man and life. In the book of Genesis Chapter 1, we learn that God created all things and human beings were made in the image of God- Genesis 1:26. If ever thing were created by him, for him, then why are we out of place with the one who made everything? Why are we treating the things of the earth like they belong to us when we are borrowing from God? Do you not know the education you went to school for comes from God? Do you not know the job he blessed you with after grad school comes from God? Do you not know that the salary and payments you receive to pay your bills, mortgage, groceries, hygiene products come from God? It is all his, including our children and families. We need to be careful with how we speak to each other and how we are utilizing the things God has given us. We are not to use the resources he sends just for ourselves. We must help where we are needed, and provide the resources that the Lord has given to help us, to help others. A crisis calls for unity. The Lord will judge the hearts of all mankind. Be careful with how you treat his creation; and how you touch his creation. The Lord is always searching the hearts of man( this mean woman, child, and all of mankind) He examines are mind- Jeremiah 17:10. This is not to quote scripture to you about what we should and shouldn’t do. This is a call to repentace for those who have forgotten the Lord Jesus and his sovereignty on this planet. Jesus is Lord, and this is his earth. He rules from heaven and judges the earth. We need to examine ourselves and see how we are measuring up to God standards. The only truth is the living Word- which is the bible. It tells about the word of God, the Character of God, what he expects from us, and how to live. The bible has everything in it to tell us how to handle anything concerning our lives. We are taught how to love, forgive, deal with disagreements, raising a family- as the bible states train up a child in the way that he should go and he will not depart from it- Proverbs 22:6. Whatever you teach a child he will practice and live it. The bible is the only book in the world that addresses every human matter. It also teaches us about what isn’t visible to the human eye- the invisisble. I don’t know where you are in this pandemic, but i am having some personal battles in this worldwide crisis. I have turned to the creator to help me search my heart and show me where i need to be made clean and to help me turn inwardly instead of outwardly. To many people are looking to the world to guide them instead of the Word to guide them. I say this following everyone advice can lead to a lot of hurt and regret in life. Unity is an invitation for God to come in and restore our hearts and broken vessel. He will change our lives and show mercy in a time where everything is a question mark. We have to surrender. Let us Turn from our ways and seek the Lord to get back in right standing with him. It’s one thing to work on this pandemic from the outside, but we as human beings need to get back to examine the emptiness that we are holding others accountable to fill when it was never met for them to fulfill in the first place. Some of us do not want to face ourselves in the mirror, but God has a way of making us. When a change is required he is not asking, he will bring into order what needs to be put in its proper place, and he will tear up in doing so. The Lord will have his way. No matter what needs to be shaken nor whom. Let us come to our senses and stop sinning. This mean to gain self-control, discipline, knowledge of your purpose on earth, and do it with the hand of God guiding you. Surrender and be blessed. Repent and recieve life, health, and healing.
Acts 3:19- Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
