“Be ready to go for unpaid leave ” That was one of the headlines on one of the local dailies yesterday. With the spread of the corona virus in Kenya and a lock down on learning institutions and public gatherings, the reality is beginning to hit a lot of us.
Some companies have already sent people on leave as we wait to see his this situation plays out, most small businesses are recording very little sales and the weeks ahead don’t look good, people are anxious.
Philippians 4:19 (NKJV)
19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
In seasons like this, we hold on to the very anchor of our souls, we hold on to God. He is able to supply all our needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. The problem is, we try to figure out how he will do it and when we cant see how then we panic and allow fear to take over. Remember he tells us to fear not because he is always with us.
He is the God who fed Elijah causing ravens to deliver food to him. He is the same God who provided manna for the children of Israel in the wilderness for forty years. Remember he is still the same God who provided oil for the widow, as much oil as she could get vessels to fill and to the widow at Zarephath God ensured that her flour and oil never run out.
God is our loving father and he cares for us. This situation has not caught him by surprise, he is not scampering all over heaven scratching his head wondering his children will survive this pandemic. He is God all knowing all powerful and nothing has changed. Let’s look to him and trust him, let’s be quick to listen to his voice and walk in obedience because he has all the answers we need.
Has this pandemic affected the flow of supply of your daily bread? In what way.
If not, are you willing to be a vessel that God uses to be a blessing to another who has been affected?
Think back, have you even been in a situation of lack and God provided for you? What happened…. Use that testimony to encourage someone today.
