The pandemic is raging and everyone is in its path. Safety and security are fading depending on who you ask. There seems to be no answers in sight to end this pandemic and due to the unknowns of the virus, it would be ludicrous to claim that we have a whole lot of knowledge on the matter. We can all attest to the fact that this pandemic has taken lives and held our economy hostage. What we needed was someone to recognize the seriousness of it from the beginning and think and listen to the people with expertise in handling pandemics. Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors, there is safety Proverbs 11:14 KJV.
When leadership doesn’t want to take the advice of wise counsel we fall. A true leader will ask for advice from experts, from qualified individuals because no one person has all the answers. In addition to asking for advice, one must then adhere to what is being suggested for fixing the problem. If we have learned one thing in these current times, it’s to surround ourselves with wise counsel.
The nation was caught off guard and leaders immediately denied there was a problem. So, one of the biggest questions of 2020 is where do we go from here? Man can’t get a grip on this pandemic, but all I can say is Jesus. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 KJV. Jesus is a Counsellor; he counsels us from God’s perspective. Jesus doesn’t tell us what he thinks, it is the mind of God, his Father, that he uses to counsel us.
If Jesus is listening to his Father, it’s probably a good idea that we do the same. We should go to God with our cares and concerns and listen to his wise counsel to get us through things we don’t understand. Listening to the Holy Spirit, allowing it to guide us when we are unsure of our safety and security. Now that ignorance has come into play, and appears to be on repeat, another big question has to be answered, who will be safe? But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil Proverbs 1:33 KJV. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Be still and know that I am God Psalm 46:1 KJV. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10 KJV.
Pray. Hold onto your faith. Hold onto God and his word because he will never leave you or forsake you. He is omniscience an all-knowing God. Trust God’s process. Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. Psalm 62:8 KJV
