COVID-19/PSALM 91: 7 Keys to Conquering Fear

Day 5 of 7 • This day’s reading

Devotional

How many angels are assigned to you?

Today, we’re continuing to move forward in Psalm 91, which has perfect keys to overcome the fear of COVID-19. The psalm continues by saying:

“For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.”

(Psalm 91:11-12)

God is the Creator of the universe, but while He has the power to do anything He wants without anyone’s help, it pleases Him to work in a team. He works with angels and sends them on special missions to protect and guard us.

Have you ever thought about the fact that you have angels assigned by God to protect you? Wow! Even if you are isolated or quarantined at home, you’re never alone; God is with you, and His angels are, too.

But what’s more, dear friend, God wants to use you to bless other people, too! The coronavirus wants to drag you down and scare you... but it’s time for us to rise up and face it. And a great way to practice this is by taking care of others. Be an angel to those around you!

Here are some ideas you could do:

  • If you don’t have symptoms, you can help the elderly and infected people in your neighborhood by going to the grocery store for them.
  • If you can’t leave home, you can send messages of encouragement to your friends and family as well as call them on the phone. People need encouragement!
  • You can post inspiring messages on social media as well as share songs that speak of the victory we have in Jesus.

Yes, dear friend, you can make a difference; you can be a light that shines in the darkness. I’m convinced that you’re going to do it!

You are a miracle!
