You are not your own if you belong to God. Your life, and very existence should be an expression of His grace. Your life should bring glory to His name.
God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son … We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. After God made that decision of what his children should be like, he followed it up by calling people by name…, he set them on a solid basis with himself. And … he stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what he had begun Romans 8:29-30 (MSG)
You should not just wake up in the morning and go to bed at night doing things that seem pleasing to you and you alone. You should be living for a cause bigger than you. Other people should be able to make better sense of their lives because they have you in it. This should not be hinged on your looks, wealth or eloquence it should be because of your relationship with the Holy Spirit and the beauty He adds to and through you.
Pay Attention, Displace Worry!
Come now [and pay attention to this], you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and carry on our business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know [the least thing] about what may happen in your life tomorrow. [What is secure in your life?] You are merely a vapor [like a puff of smoke or a wisp of steam from a cooking pot] that is visible for a little while and then vanishes [into thin air]. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and we will do this or that.” James 4:13-15 (AMP)
Don’t worry about tomorrow. God’s got it all under control. Don’t worry about post COVID-19. God’s got it all under control He bringing you out of this season whole in Jesus name. In actually fact you would have become much better, if you followed His leading(s) closely. In case you have not been following Him, it’s not too late right now. He wants to show you the way to achieving your dreams, the way to making greatness out of your life. Instead of worrying about the future, pray.
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Philippians 4:6-7 (MSG)
Finally, pray today. Pray now. Pray every day. Pray without ceasing. Coronavirus or not, Pray!
