Ruth Charles has been taking comfort from the Psalms:
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
The pandemic is affecting all the nations of the world. Even if some countries do not have as many infections, the lock-downs and quarantines have a ripple effect on the world’s economy.
Ruth also mentioned another Psalm:
If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.Psalm 91:9-10 (NIV)
And while pandemic affects us all, it doesn’t overwhelm us.
