Reminder During Isolation

A little story. Once upon a time, there was a giant Earth. One day, a virus became stronger and spread all around the world. People began panicking, as they did not see an end to this demise. Some transformed their inner xenophobia into hatred because they lacked knowledge of what is good. Some became afraid for their lives because they did not know the truth. This story is what happened not long ago in the world. How would someone be at peace at a time like this? If one
trusts God, one needs not to fear. “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4.
God allows me to trust him in these times of uncertainty (and any other time he wills, of course). Sometimes, situations can become frightening. A stormy night, a lonely walk, a world pandemic, etc.

What can we learn from this time in isolation?
From this time, we can practice our trust in God. No one that has received the spirit should be afraid of perishing or being in the hands of evil. I trust God. I love God. I know that people
might fear the virus or other people, but there is no need to be afraid of those things nor their aftermaths. Trusting God is relieving. It is comforting. It is wise to prevent the spread of a
disease, but humans are not perfect. I am not afraid of being contacted with COVID-19, or any other malady. I know that, even if I die, Jesus will be there with me. I believe that, if anyone accepts Jesus as their Lord and savior, and receives the Spirit of God, they will be saved. “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26. I would like everyone to believe this, but that is not for me to decide.
