What we know about God in times of Trouble

A worldwide pandemic is a pretty big deal. I’m not exactly panicking, but certainly a little on edge and cautious. In these very troubled times, we can still have a very great peace. We can hope. We can trust. Here’s what we know about God because we are God’s children. He never changes, even when the whole world is changing.

God is our comfort. He is our protector.

“He will cover you with his wings, and under his wings you will find refuge.”Psalm 90:1

God knows what we do not and cannot know.

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”Jeremiah 33:3

God is the source of our strength and rest.

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:28-31

We can trust God. He is our refuge.

“Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge”Psalm 62:5-8

Nothing, absolutely NOTHING can separate us from the love of God.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35,37-39

Take heart. God is on your side. ❤️
