THE BLOOD OF JESUS BRINGS PEACE
Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) , “be anxious (in anxiety over) for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Anxiety and fear are the opposite of faith. This present-day outbreak of the corona virus (covid-19) has put some fear and a tremendous amount of anxiety on people throughout our nation and nearly the whole world. What guidance do we get for this from God’s word? It tells us “not to worry.” Take it to the Lord in prayer and thanksgiving and He will give you peace and wisdom in this perilous time…inner peace that He will see you through it safely, and wisdom of how to act, what to do, and how to prepare.
The mass news media has made this out to be possibly the worst plague (pandemic) of our lifetime causing widespread fear, yet they say little about this winter’s epidemic of “type A” influenza. This flu season has already killed around 2,000 people, more than 50 times that which covid-19 has killed. People did not panic over it because they expect an outbreak of flu every winter, so it seemed like “same old, same old.” As a believer, plead the blood of Jesus over your household. Just as the Israelites in Egypt, after putting the blood of the lamb on their doorposts, were protected from the death angel, so also will the blood of Jesus applied to your house protect you and your household. Praise God, this brings peace!
