Today we are faced with an enemy that cannot be seen with the naked eye. COVID-19 is the thief that Jesus once said in John 10:10 that comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus also said in the same passage that He came so that we might have life and have it more abundantly. So, if you are asking where the Lord is in this matter, Jesus has never left us, nor has He forsaken us. He has proven it time and time again through the Word of God. In the third chapter of Daniel, He is the fourth man that stood with the three Hebrew boys that were thrown in the fiery furnace when King Nebuchadnezzar wanted them to deny their faith. He is the one who stood with King David when he stood before the giant Goliath. Romans 8:38-39 states, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
