This Virus is No Accident

This Virus is No Accident

"Whatsoever the LORD PLEASED, [that] DID HE in heaven, and IN EARTH, in the seas, and all deep places." - Psalm 135:6)

    There are NO ACCIDENTS in God's plan and purpose. NOTHING happens by surprise or chance.  The one true and living God didn't just spin this world into existence, step back, and leave it to in the hands of fickle, changeable creatures like us, hoping against all hope that ultimately everything would work out for good.

    As children of God, we either believe and trust the God of the Scripture, or we wander haplessly, worried, anxious, even fearful of anything and everything just like those who serve a god of their own imagination and invention. These things ought not be so for those of us who "KNOW HIM", or better, are "known of Him"!  

    These events transpiring on this globe right now are NO ACCIDENT, therefore we should not act and react as those who "have no hope".  We should be sensible, doing what we can responsibly do to protect ourselves and our families, but ultimately what we DO or DO NOT DO is not the true source of our continued existence on this planet. When I look at and consider the futility and temporal nature of this place we put so much value in, I think of John's words concerning the God who "loved me and gave Himself for me" - "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."(Rev.4:11)
