Kept in Seasons of Danger (Part 1)

We live in dangerous times. Covid19 has spread its lethal tentacles all over the world. It has silently crept in the hovels of the poor and into the mansions of the rich, powerful and famous. The virus is not a respecter of persons. Fear abounds. None can escape the touch of its cold hand.

How should a Christian live in “Seasons of Danger”?  The advice the Puritan John Flavel (1628-1691) gave to Christians in England long ago,  is relevant today.  Here is just a snippet of that advice.

Understand that everything is in the hand of God. Get this thought well settled in your heart and it will “guard you against slavish fears.” 

Remember that God, in whose hands you are, is your Father. Christ is King and Supreme Lord. You are the apple of His eye. He loves you most tenderly. Understand this and you will quickly say, “Return unto your rest, O my soul.”

Then

You will soon sing “in the midst of danger, “The Lord is King of all the earth, sing praise with understanding.” 

Simple yet profoundly true.

Praise the Lord

Scripture

Psalm 116:7 * Zechariah 2:8 * Psalm 47:7
