Coronavirus Devotional

Faith March 18, 2020 By Paige Smith

We are a people of faith, not a people of fear!

The scripture reads “Yea though I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death” not “Yea though I walk thru the valley of the shadow of no toilet paper.”

Our faith is being tested. Passing or failing, your response will mark a significant milestone in your walk of faith. But even more importantly, how you deal with this test is your Christian witness!

In times like these, people will notice someone who responds differently than the crowd. True faith is the thing that empowers us to respond differently. This is not to say we will not have anxious feelings or experience moments of doubt, but ultimately our response should be grounded in God’s promises.

Real Faith is believing God’s promises are more real than anything we can see or feel in this world...and that includes the Coronavirus and empty shelves on the toilet paper isle.

“For we live by faith and not by sight.” -- 2 Corinthians 5:7
