Just Wondering

In light of all the happenings in the world-America in particular I have been wondering about a few things.

I wonder how many flu virus deaths there has been in the world-America compared to Covid 19. How come no one makes a big deal out of those lost lives.

What makes Covid 19 such a big deal? Is wearing a mask really helpful? Exactly what are masks preventing except for the inability to breathe? If there is a concern about what comes out of your nose and mouth then masks should have been a part of our attire since the beginning of time.

What if you have Covid 19 and you always wear a mask. Does that mean you are constantly reinfecting yourself by reloading your lungs every time you breathe in?

How would you revive some who passes out with a mask on and you have one on also? Do you just stand over the person and not doing anything because of your fear of Covid 19. At that point would you be thinking your life is more important than theirs? Jesus touched the lepers when everyone else was afraid to and they got healed when everyone else wanted to run away.

That brings me to another wonder. Why does it seem that fear is the major player in this pandemic? Every time you turn around the instructions, reasons and closings change. Most get worse. So after all these months Americans don’t know if they are going or coming or which way they went. All of the uncertainty, new directions, closures of jobs, schools, church, etc makes one wonder if it is a “plandemic,” instead of a pandemic.

So why does it seem everyone is treated like they are infected when most are not. Why doesn’t only the infected get quarantined instead of everyone?

Never in my life have I seen anything like this.

That is why I’m …. JUST WONDERING!

What We See and Know When We Pray

The pandemic situation we are surrounded by has taken my prayer life to a higher dimension than ever before.

On the way to work I was praying for churches and church leaders when all of a sudden I saw mega churches and their leaders (no one in particular) and then heard the following scripture: Luke 12:16-21. The most earthshaking to me was verse 21. “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God”. (NIV) Are the mega churches built for God or the man building them? I’m not saying mega churches are wrong but what is the motive behind them.

Maybe during this time of shutting in we all can reassess our relationship with the Lord and have a willingness to repent and change what he reveals to us so we can be who he created us to be – a fierce army – when this is over.

Our work is not done but in a sense it’s just beginning. There’s a lot of afraid people in the world – saved and unsaved alike that need a reassuring word from God. That’s what God’s army is here to do – to share the truth.

Blessings.
