We spend most of our lives rushing from one place to another, but this quarantine has forced us to stay in place. It’s been a perfect opportunity to get closer to God and seek his face. Think about it. We’ve had weeks to spiritually build ourselves up. Isn’t that wonderful?
Now, some people and leaders have had enough time inside and they are rushing to push us back outside. Reports are saying it’s not safe and now is not the time to RUSH into the world. If you look at it spiritually, it happens the same way.
As soon as we get into a good groove and get closer to God consistently, something or someone comes to push us back into the world. What do we do in those situations? Lean closer to God. Seek him for answers and don’t move until you have a clear answer from him on what to do or where to go.
We can’t rush back into the world in either situation because both may end up being a big mistake. Timing is everything. Ecclesiastes 3:1 lets us know that, “to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”. If we rush into the world at the wrong time, all of our work could be in vain. Whether it’s the work of getting closer to God, or the work of clearing up the coronavirus. It could all be in vain if we are moving on the wrong time.
Keep this in mind as you make your decisions, and put God first in all of your plans.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Vivian D. Norwood
