Today we are faced as a nation , as a world community with a giant , called Covid 19.This enemy caused great havoc amongst us and in our hearts , from which fear the fiercest one.It is waring its battle cry from the morning till night making our frontline workers weak and trembling , uncertain of tomorrow.
I found a parallel situation in the bible where Goliath came out every morning for 40 days , shouting his warcry , scaring off the Israelites.
Well, it worked ; their own warcry became bitter in their mouths as fear became the toxic ingredient in their warcry .
1 Sam. 24 Whenever the Israelites saw the man, they all fled from him in great fear.
Then a great change came as this young man , David the sherperdboy, appear on the scene and ran to the battle lines.
1 Samuel 17
20. He reached the camp as the army was going out to its battle positions, shouting the war cry.
He saw the danger and knew the strength of the opposition , but he relied on the strength of Someone else : not on the king or the army of great soldiers standing behind him , but on the Lord.
My heart goes out to all our workers on the frontlines.Knowing your real identity will bring great strength inspite of the giant infront of you , mocking you .
Stand firm.Practise your warcry in morning untill your shift ends…
❤ You are courageous.
