For many weeks, we have been exposed to so many negative articles and news stories about the dangers, risks and destructive nature of COVID-19. I understand the magnitude and significance of this pandemic, but as a Christ-follower, I don’t want to spend my time focused on the negative.
When we focus on the negative, our anxiety grows, our attitudes change, and we have a tendency to treat others poorly because of how we feel about our situation and ourselves. The Bible is clear in its advice about how we can deal with our anxieties: God cares for us, He will lift us up with His mighty hand, and we are to humble ourselves in order to trust Him.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:6-7
