We are indeed in some strange times. A virus is loose and most of us are or have been in a kind of lock down or quarantine in some ways. I live in a country that has taken a different path in all this. Things will never be the same. It will always be before and after Covid19.
It is easy to loose perspective and hope, but that is what the devil wants! Yes it is easy to ask where God is in all this. The answer is: He is here in the mids of all this. Yes even in the mids of the riots and demonstrations.
So why is he not doing anything? Well, this is tricky. In a way he is doing things, but not in a way that will step on our free will. Yes, there we are boys and girls, the human free will. So when we ask for forgiveness and repent he will hear us, and he will save us. It might take some time. ( Just check in the bible on how long it took for the Jewish people to be saved from the Egyptian slavery.) It might not take that long, but it might give some perspective.
But be sure that he has it all under control. God is in control, even if it does not look like it. Just remember that we are at war. Not a war between humans, but a spiritual one. Ehpesians 6:10-18
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
So remember that when it seems hopeless, dark, and that there is no use, pray and give thanks! Even if it is for the smallest thing. Then when you hav done that, pray some more and give thanks. If you are to weak, ask some one to help you or pray for and with you. For there two or three are gathered He will be in the mids. God is closer than you think. He is with you wherever you are.
