COVID Questions

 

Where is God?

 

God was and is where He always is, in the hearts of His people.

 

2 Corinthians 6:16-18 (MSG)

Don’t become partners with those who reject God. How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? That’s not partnership; that’s war. Is light best friends with dark? Does Christ go strolling with the Devil? Do trust and mistrust hold hands? Who would think of setting up pagan idols in God’s holy Temple? But that is exactly what we are, each of us a temple in whom God lives. God himself put it this way:

“I’ll live in them, move into them;

I’ll be their God and they’ll be my people. So leave the corruption and compromise; leave it for good,” says God. “Don’t link up with those who will pollute you.

I want you all for myself.

I’ll be a Father to you; you’ll be sons and daughters to me.”

The Word of the Master, God.

 

Persecution brought about the purpose of God in His people

 

Find a need and fill it

Bring hope

Speak life

 

Why does God allow these things?

 

Put all your fear at His feet

 

Trust His heart for you and all

 

Praise Him in the pandemic

 

Go be the church

 

Care and comfort the anxious

Help and heal the hurting

Uplift the tired and discouraged

Restore the lost and sinful

Care for people’s souls

Heal the sick

Sing a new song to Him Who sits on

Heaven’s mercy seat

It Is Well

 – Horatio Gates Spafford, Kristene DiMarco, and Philip Paul Bliss

 

Verse 1

 

Grander earth has quaked before

Moved by the sound of His voice

Seas that are shaken and stirred

Can be calmed and broken for my regard

 

Chorus

 

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all through it all

It is well

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

It is well with me

 

Verse 2

 

Far be it from me to not believe

Even when my eyes can’t see

And this mountain that’s in front of me

Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

 

So let go my soul and trust in Him

The waves and wind still know His name

 

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well it is well with my soul
