On this Palm Sunday morning, our title is taken from Romans 8:28, which says: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”.
Let us ignore all the conspiracy theories for a minute and look at what is happening in the world today. People are losing their jobs and we are hearing of people dying from the same disease all over the world making all of us hide in the safety of our homes because there is a pandemic raging in the world.
We don’t need a conspiracy theorist to tell us what is happening is a deliberate plot of the enemy and not just some random virus because the bible says in John 10:10 that “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…”
Those of you who are familiar with that scripture know that is not the end of it.
Our Lord Jesus Christ goes further to say “…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”.
Yes, Glory Hallelujah! Hosanna to the highest!! Jesus has come not only to give life but to give that life more abundantly.
God is a God of restoration and he is able to restore to you whatever you have lost during this pandemic.
I do not claim to be a prophet but in 2 Peter 2:19, the bible says “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts”.
The bible is that sure word of prophecy and it says, once again, in Romans 8:28 that “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”.
Some of you reading this may be feeling unwell, lost your job or even lost a loved one to Covid-19 but put your trust in God and what the devil meant for evil God will turn it around for good.
For certain people, God has been using this situation to perform miraculous healing in their bodies thereby renewing not only their faith but the faith of those who listen to their testimonies. There are reports also that people are turning to God in record numbers. National leaders are telling their people to cry unto God. Surely, that wasn’t what the enemy planned for.
Child of God, I don’t know what your peculiar situation is regarding this crisis but one thing I know is this: Jesus saw this pandemic long before it happened and he already has a plan for you. Continue to put your trust in him as he reveals his plan to you.
May the Lord continue to keep you safe and bless you.
