“Yesterday marked our sixth Sunday of self-distancing due to COVID-19, and it seems a return to normalcy is not far off.” These words were written in Music Notes on April 20. As of today we begin our 12th week of sheltering in place with COVID-19. There has been expanded opening up of churches and different sectors of our economy. But who would have imagined all this would be taking place in the world? As people of faith, we need to resist letting fear rule our hearts and govern our thinking. We need not give up on God’s ability at the point in time when we should be magnifying His ability – for He is able! “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge.” Psalm 91:1-4
The God we serve is the same yesterday, today, and forever. His grace and mercy are beyond compare. Nothing can compete with the future God has planned for His children. May that hope and vision of the future stir you to share with everyone the confidence you have in Jesus Christ.
