Words of the Week – Use This Time to Seek Him

 There are times when we’re allowed to go through great trials and tribulations — not to bring harm or kill us, but to edify.  The coronavirus has thrown the world into a tense ball of fear and if you are listening to or watching popular media, it isn’t ending any time soon. This has put us all in an uncomfortable place of being confined at home.

Our lives have been disrupted in a huge way like never before — no work, no play, no socializing. We live in a culture that thrives on the very things we can’t do right now.  So, what does this all mean?

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” — 2 Chronicles 7:14


God is calling us to meet with Him one-on-one for some much-needed counseling and therapy. We have the exclusive opportunity to take this time to reconnect with our Heavenly Father. This is the time to lay it all down before the Lord, invite Him into your life and be ready to move in the purpose He created you to do in this world.

Make no mistake in ignoring this, this isn’t business as usual, you don’t have to be Christian to know that. This is time that has been allowed to be set aside for a greater purpose and a greater life to be realized. Whether you are a celebrity, politician, employed or homeless, we have all been stopped in our tracks to behold the Lord.

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33

Let us all seek the One who knows all things and to whom every pestilence must bow. Let us seek God and His will during these uncertain times. The only thing needed is a desire to do His will and He will take care of the rest.

Be safe, practice common sense and trust in the Lord with all your heart.
