Does anything surprise God? No.
Is God the alpha and omega? Yes.
Does God know all? Yes.
Does God allow things to occur on this earth that bring hardship to His creation? Yes.
Can God change things? Yes.
When will God act and change things? When people turn to Him and honestly and earnestly cry out to Him, He knows our hearts and our intentions.
God knows if we are asking Him to move because we are just wanting an issue to resolve. He looks beyond that and wants us to ask because we desire His closeness in our lives. We must turn to Him whole heartedly and acknowledge Him as God not just the big sugar daddy in the sky. He is holy and deserves our adoration and praise.
“Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.”
Isaiah 55:6-7 NLT
Don’t take this wrong, I am not saying that COVID-19 is a punishment from God. But I am saying that we must seek the Lord ever more diligently in this trying time. Dependence on things of this world will be proven to be inadequate in comparison.
Let us seek the Lord and His healing and provision with all that we are. While we are closed in He is present with us…crack open His word and do a little extra reading, praise Him for He is worthy, and cry out to Him (yell at Him if you like) for He can handle it and wants us to share not only our thoughts but our raw emotions with Him.
