GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE ….
“Are You Stuck in Neutral?
Does this coronavirus, pandemic, have you feeling like you are stuck in neutral? Can’t move forward, can’t move back? Conversations and thoughts focused on life as you once knew it vs life due to COVID-19? My testimony: “I used to go to church, worship and fellowship with the whole church body – handshakes – hugs – smiles – expressions in full view. Now, I leave my house carrying hand sanitizer wipes – sprays – gloves – wearing masks and planning on keeping a safe distance, staying at least 6 feet away, from everyone.” Feeling stuck yet?
“The Word will release you from being stuck.” – Rev. Samuel S. Brice
We are called to be readers – hearers – doers of His Word. Readers – hearers – doers are action words. We are called to action – no standing – no sitting still. However, do not make the mistake of moving without Him. We are followers of God. Put God first and follow His Lead.
“During this coronavirus isolation God wants us to focus on Him.” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
The anxiety and depression you’re feeling during this pandemic may cause you to lose focus on God – may cause you to focus on your “woe is me” attitude. Wake up – sit up – stand up! This pandemic is not about you. God has not forgotten you.
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
He is waiting on you to get back in action – to redirect your focus. Focus on God – focus on His Word. Pray! Ask God what He wants you to do during this pandemic. He will tell you. Then you must follow His instructions. Now is the time to lean on Him – lean on His Word. Call on Jesus, the name above all names – the wonderful powerful name – Jesus! Reap the benefits.
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged.” – Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
Submit to the Word of God and you will never get stuck in neutral. You win with God. His Word will move you to peace – purpose – productivity – proficiency – prosperity.
