It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.He has also promised He has good plans for us - Jeremiah 29:11 . . .
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.These two verses absolutely tell us the truth - and this is the truth for all times - when we experience blessings and when we are confused, possibly afraid and uncertain . . . as so many are right now with COVID-19.
It is essential for us to make the choice to trust God and believe the truth of His Word, so we are able to stand firm; no matter what we may face. The way we do these things will make a tremendous impact on our children, grandchildren, and generations we may never meet. When we make these choices, they will be able to see what it looks like to trust God and believe the truth of His Word. When they see we are able to stand firm, no matter what we may face, they will see an example for them to follow; and this will impact generations yet unborn.
Yes, we absolutely make these choices for our own walk with God; because we want to faithfully obey, follow God, walk with Him, and stand firm. But we also make these choices so the children, grandchildren, and generations yet unborn who God has given to us will see our example, remember what it looks like to make these choices and want to do the same.
