And now we hear about a disease that is going to kill us all, and many have already died in China. Who really trusts a communist nation to tell the truth? How much do we believe the news today, with so much false information, it’s easy to become cynical. Many people have already panicked, causing Wall Street and other world trading to be impacted. Our lives are threatened every day, do we go into hiding because of the danger? No, we continue to live, and if it’s our time, we will move on to much better things and be in the presence of Jesus. Let me remind you of what fear is: False Evidence Appearing Real! The things they are telling us to do the prevent the spread of this illness, are things we should be doing anyway; wash your hands and don’t touch your face until you do! Now I’m not saying that a Christian won’t get sick, because we all have times when we do, but we are promised a divine protection - if reports are true, this disease resembles what the Bible calls a plague. I will accept God’s promise as my own and pray it over my family, and I suggest you do the same.
Because you have made the LORD your dwelling place— the Most High, who is my refuge— no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. Psalms 91:9-11
