Coronavirus and Emotional Thinking

As you have probably heard, much of the world is in a state of alarm over an illness called the Coronavirus.

I encourage you to be wary of emotional thinking/decision-making concerning this outbreak. Acting out of emotions like fear, worry, hyper-control, or phobia can be dangerous for your mental, physical, and spiritual health.

I am not telling you to ignore this current trouble, but I am telling you that you can plan and prepare in a calm and logical manner.

I also want you to know that God will take care of you and your loved ones when you walk in the power of His Kingdom and listen closely to Him. He is our Hope, Healing, Peace, and so much more.

A Simple Message: Hold on to Hope

In this fallen world, it can be hard to carry the light of Christ.

Sometimes, your circumstances can make you feel that you are all on your own and that nothing really matters.

But remember, one of the most important thing you can do is hold on to hope. Your Heavenly Father loves you and is always with you. He wants you to walk with Him and experience great abundance! So, no matter what you are facing, know that you are a child of the Most High God, and that blessings and prosperity are your inheritance! Speak what you want to see come to pass in your life and claim it as yours (even if you don’t see it yet).

Word of Encouragement

I know that some days can be tough. I know that it can be a struggle to keep your faith strong. I want to encourage you today that you have a Father in heaven who loves you and who will always take care of you. You are not a mistake, a failure, a lost cause, or hopeless case. You are a child of the One True God, and you are blessed and highly favored!

Challenging Question From Holy Spirit: No Fear (Pt. II)

There are many scriptures in the Bible that tell us not to be afraid. I have included a number of them below (from the AMP version).

(2 Timothy 1:7)- For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

(Isaiah 35:4)- Say to those who are of a fearful and hasty heart, Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance; with the recompense of God He will come and save you.

(John 14:27)- Peace I [Jesus] leave with you; My peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

(Joshua 1:9)- Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

(Psalms 23:4)- Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

(Psalms 27:1)- The Lord is my Light and my Salvation- whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid?

I found the chapter/verse of the scriptures at the following web-page

(https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/fear-bible-verses/ )

and posted the translation from my personal Bible (The Everyday Life Bible which contains notes and commentary by Joyce Meyer). If you want to see more scriptures that discuss fear, I recommend taking a look at the full list!

Scriptures like the ones I have included in this post are true for you today and every day. You do not need to fear!

We are the children of the One True God, and He calls us His own! We never have to be afraid because we can always call upon our Heavenly Father. When fear tries to creep in, that is an attempt of the enemy to break us down and drive a wedge between us and God. Our raw humanity is all too eager to cling onto fear rather than trust in the Lord . We cannot allow fear to overtake us! We do not want even a single seed of fear in our minds!

When you feel fear or worry coming on, think about how much God loves you and how you can trust Him to take care of every situation!

It is also very beneficial to talk to the Lord/Holy Spirit and read the Bible!

As your sibling in Christ, I want you to live your best blessed life! I hope this discussion of the challenging question I posted a few days ago has helped you!

Feel free to comment, and please share this post with people you know who could benefit from it!
