The evidence appears to be mounting up. Daily increases of people with COVID-19 being announced. The tally worldwide on an exponential climb. It’s confronting. It’s scary.
But we do not have to live dictated by our circumstances. We are in lock-down but we are not locked in. It is a reality for us now but doesn’t have to be our perspective. We need to look at what is going on around us with God’s perspective.
“When you stay in the right perspective, it helps you navigate through issues” (Shawn Bolz)
I’m taking a little bit of licence here with the term circumstantial evidence and not applying in its legal sense. But rather to say don’t let the evidence of these circumstances be the one loud voice in our day. Don’t let it triumph by letting fear grip our souls. Take our worry and anxiety and give it to God.
We need to remember that God is above circumstances. He gets the final say, not covid-19 and not the enemy. The best thing we can do is lift our eyes from these circumstances and keep them firmly fixed on the Lord.
For my eyes are toward You, O GOD, the Lord; In You I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless. (Psalm 141:8)
‘I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” (Psalm 16:8)
