Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God – I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you.

What a wonderful promise from the creator God in such a time of uncertainty. As the world comes to terms with the impact and spread of CoVID-19 we perhaps ask the question where is God in all of this?

I remember as a child being presented with a badge that in a circle read: GOD IS NO WHERE and I was told to read what I saw. It is amazing what one space can do to the above GOD IS NOW HERE, as He always has and always will.

Perhaps at this time we might want to try and find someone to blame – we rightly ask why and how, has this happened? Unfortunately it is symptomatic of a fallen world. A world which though created perfectly by God, has been in decline since Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s command and sin (a word for wrong doing against God) came into the world.

In the Bible Romans ch 5 v 12 states “therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned”

Whether it is wars, acts of terrorism, natural disasters or even as we are experiencing a pandemic outbreak it all reminds us of the need to have a personal relationship with God. He wants us to know what the future holds, even in uncertain times.

The verse above from Isaiah, was a message of hope in a bleak dark landscape for God’s chosen people the Jewish nation.

Perhaps during these times of uncertainty you are looking for hope, strength and comfort.

Listen to the words of Jesus, God’s Son who came into this world to provide Salvation (deliverance for you and me from the consequence of our sin)

“Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matt ch 11 v 28

Why can Jesus provide hope, comfort and rest at this time?

As the Son of God, He loved us, and came into this world for us. The Bible tells us that he gave His life for us, so that we might be able to have “eternal life” that is to be in heaven for eternity. Instead of facing God’s righteous judgement for the wrong we have done. His death and shed blood at the cross of Calvary makes it possible for the guilt and judgement to be forgiven. He paid the price that sin required by God.

What price would people put on a remedy for CovID-19? To save life and to enable those affected to be delivered from their symptoms.

It would be difficult to quantify! God has provided a remedy to the effect of our sin, the price was the death of His own Son the Lord Jesus.

He is able and willing to give you hope, strength and peace in this uncertain time. Isaiah reminds us of the following:

Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. (Isaiah ch 55 v 6)
