When Trouble Unites

We are certainly living in interesting times. One day I am reading about people who are fighting over toilet paper, and the next day, people are uniting to ensure the vulnerable are being cared for

Coronavirus has undoubtedly changed the world, forever, but like most pandemics, humanity fights back to survive

Yet, it is seeing the church unite together that is comforting, to me. There is one message coming from all parts of the world, and that is, that God is our Hope and we must continue to put our trust in Him

Friends, for some of us, we will feel the pain of loss through this season of uncertainty, but I have learnt that when trouble comes our way, we need to run to God, to protect our hearts and minds, because He alone is an unshakable force that provides refuge in our times of need

This is the time to read the Scriptures to remind ourselves of the covenant we are under

This is the time to listen to worship music and praise the One who was, is, and is to come

This is the time to fellowship – where possible – together, but know that we are united, as one body, to bring the presence of God into every heart and mind

Yesterday at our church, we declared God’s promises, we prophesied over the congregation, and we praised God, but it was powerful to witness the Spirit moving

Nahum had the difficult task of bringing God’s people back to Him, but He gave an important reminder, that God still rules over all the earth (even over those who don’t acknowledge Him) because God is all-powerful and therefore, not even the coronavirus, can stop His plans

So today, let’s remember that if God is for us, who, or what, can be against us? Yet, also, no matter what…God is good…always

“The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him.”

Nahum 1:7

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
