Covid Vs Covered
The world says “Covid” we believers say “Covered”.
Covid-19 is the buzz word wherever we turn.We hear it in the world, media, literally from all angles even from church circles. Rightfully so, with so many people infected and affected.We are in no way standing cold towards those infected, they are in our prayers daily.
As believers, however, we are covered by His name which is a strong tower (Proverbs 18:10).Not only that, the blood of Jesus hasn’t lost its power.As it saved the Israelites whose door posts were smeared with blood, so it will save those who are covered by His blood, shed on Calvary.We know we are bought with the blood (Hebrews 9) and not with silver or gold or the blood of goats and calves.
He is Jehovah Shalom, God our Peace.His peace is nothing like the world’s peace but surpasses all human understanding.
He is also Jehovah Shammah, God our Banner.It implies that He’s our leader, a mighty warrior (Psalm 35: 3).Who conquered darkness, death and hell (Revelation 1:18) and made us more than conquerors (Romans 18:37)?Our speech, our behaviour should be that of victory and not of defeat.Saying what He says and doing what He does because He’s got our back.
2 Timothy 1:7 states “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
Are you covered by His hedge, His wall of fire, totally and completely?
The enemy comes to steal our joy and confidence.Let’s not allow him.Let’s stand steadfast on God’s Word, immovable and unshakable.
