Small Business owners are struggling.
Churches have closed.
Our government is struggling to keep our economy afloat.
Families are facing layoffs, reduced hours, and unsettling times.
While some are in a state of shock during the Coronavirus crisis, others are wrestling to find answers for the tough decisions that lie ahead. It is easy to become discouraged by what we see.
In moments when our faith is under fire, we must cling to our trust and belief in a higher power. This did not catch God by surprise. He already knows the ending. We cannot allow uncertainty to consume us.
We must remind ourselves that we must not focus on the things we can see. We must remain rooted in our faith.
I am reminded of the time in my life when I could barely walk. The doctors had no answer as to why my body was covered in hives. I had just left my job, our roof needed repairs, and the air conditioner went out all within three weeks.
In the beginning, I felt hopeless and helpless, but God reminded me of the other obstacles that I had endured and overcome in my life. The assurance that I began to feel from that reminder allowed me to rest in my faith that once again, he would see me through the difficulties that I was facing. He did just that.

Our faith will allow us to see opportunities where others see obstacles. Our faith will allow us to send encouraging words and help others where needed. Our faith will cause us to kneel and pray for strength, direction, and peace. Our faith will remind us of the many obstacles that we have already overcome. Our faith will sustain us and keep us during this season. Our faith will remind us that God that loves us, cares for us, and wants what best for us. When the enemy works to feel you with fear, doubt, and unbelief, I want to remind you that:
- God did not bring you here to leave you.
- Remind yourself of all that you have already overcome.
- Feed your faith and starve your fears through positive thinking and praying God’s word over your life.
Let us remember that in the end, we win. There is nothing too hard or impossible for those who believe. We will overcome. God’s got this. Keep the faith!
