“You are the God who performs miracles;
you display your power among the peoples.” Psalm 77:14
When speaking about the decreased number of Coronavirus cases in his state, a certain governor said the following. “God did not do that. Faith did not do that. Destiny did not do that,” he stressed. “A lot of pain and suffering did that.
Mind you, he is a professing Christian. Up to this point, I had liked this man. I believed he managed the crisis well. But when I heard those words, I literally felt sick to my stomach. And if you are a believer, you should too.
This is not a post about measures that should be taken to control the disease. God gave us brains, and we should use them. However, since when did we start thinking that WE were God? When did we start believing that something uncontrollable was in our control? When did we stop praying for Him to perform a miracle? He parted the Red Sea for goodness sake! I think He can slow the spread of this virus!
The LORD is my strength and my song… Ex 15:2
I believe with all of my heart that God is trying to get our attention, and none of our leaders, (and many believers for that matter), are submitting to His sovereignty. Not one leader has bowed the knee, and acknowledged that this thing is beyond our control. We need GOD, yes in addition to all the medical approaches. (Side note: who even gave us the brains to come up with the therapeutics and vaccines?)
For all the “slow the spread posts”, I don’t think I can even remember one asking God to perform a miracle to heal our nation and remove this virus. We aren’t even asking him to display His power. Don’t you think if His church got on their needs, He might just act? We are failing the test. God have mercy on us.
