Worry Goes Away When We Focus On Him
When we keep our focus where it needs to be, on Jesus, worry about COVID-19 tends to melt away.
No one can pray and worry at the same time. - Max Lucado
Give No Thought To Answer
Luke 21:10-19 (14-15, 18-19)
Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute [you], delivering [you] up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. And it shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle [it] therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and [some] of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls.
When we consider the substitution of worry with a focus on Christ, this passage of scripture rises as a gentle reminder of His Grace on earth. We are reminded not to think about how we should answer when afflictions come (Luke 12:11), for the Word and Wisdom is not an issue of mediation (Luke 24:25); this testament is irrefutable. The reference to harm is not for the moral association of life but the Life to come after the resurrection. The Truth is in the revelation of Life; our promise is eternity.
Jehovah Rophe, The LORD (our) Healer - Exodus 15:26; we thank You for healing our minds from wayward thinking. We praise You with unified voices for the Peace of our hearts graced by Your Love. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who settle their hearts with the Truth of the answers in times of persecution, so that; we who received the Word and Wisdom of Christ show patience in our soul. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
