Biblical Calendar May 2020
You and I know that the world is going through a crisis that has affected the lives of millions. Every nation across the globe is trying to deal with this pandemic through different strategies and health care support. However, one strategy that all seem to agree is social distancing. All day everyday, we keep hearing of social distancing. In fact, it is pathetic that even family members are forced to maintain ‘social distancing’ for fear of infecting their spouse or children. Sadly, people are afraid to come close to one another. We are now tuned to deliberately maintain a safe social distance.
Nevertheless, let us remember that our God is ever so close to us. Our Lord Almighty has promised that he is near us and will never leave us alone. With God at our right hand, we need not worry about anything. Sickness, fear, anxiety, deprivation or loss is not going to touch us. God protects us like a wall of fire.
Let us claim his promise –
do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” Isaiah 41:10
True to his promise, God will protect us and strengthen us. Therefore, let us hold on to God tightly. God desires that we draw near to him and he is happy when we call on him.
The scripture clearly says, “Come near to God and he will come near to you” James 4:8
“The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth” Psalm 145:18
Draw close to God
Even as we start yet another month, let us approach our Almighty with faith and confidence and draw close to him. At all times, God is close to us. He is so near that nothing is going to hurt us. Praise God
