God is already our shelter from virus
God, our government officials have given us a directive to “shelter in place,” referencing the COVID-19 pandemic.
I’ve got news and facts that pre-empt their call. You have, from the beginning of time, sheltered us! With joy and thanksgiving, we rejoice for Your provisions, as given in Psalms 91:1-7, continuing to shelter us in Psalms 46:1, and in additional scriptures in Your Word. You are our constant refuge, and uphold our spiritual and physical persona in all occurrences, causing us to remember that we have not been given the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.
Let us continue to pray, become increasingly fortified and share our sheltering news, in Jesus’ name.
