2020 – TUESDAY 24 MARCH
PREPPING OR PREPARING
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed,
With the Corona Virus in full swing at present, there are many people waxing eloquent on the need to PREP for the dark days ahead.
PREPPING COMES FROM FEAR – PREPARING COMES FROM FAITH
There is a huge difference between panic buying of a few toilet rolls (essentials) – and preparing your heart to trust God in uncertain times.
PREPPING IS LOOKING FOR A BUNKER
PREPARING IS HIDING IN THE ROCK
When the tough times come – the righteous run into the Lord and are safe – in Him.
PREPPING IS LISTENING TO THE MEDIA
PREPARING IS READING GOD’S WORD
The hysteria and panic that has been created by the media has no place in the community of faith.
The word of God is our medicine and our strength – the righteous are as bold as a lion – through faith in His word.
PREPPING IS ISOLATION
PREPARING IS UNITY
Even though it is wise to socially distance ourselves to limit the spread of this current virus – we must now find ways to strengthen our bonds of unity and faith. Staying connected spiritually is even more important in difficult times.
PREPPING IS THE SOUND OF FEAR
PREPARING IS THE SOUND OF FAITH
We all have a sound – that creates our world – despite our circumstances.
The sound of fear creates a world of fear & unbelief
The sound of faith creates a world of faith, hope & love
PREPPING IS LOOKING DOWN
PREPARING IS LOOKING UP
Prepping is looking at the circumstances of our broken world.
Preparing is looking up and preparing our hearts for the Lord to come and be manifest in our midst.
TO REVEAL JESUS
TO A TROUBLED WORLD
