Trust in Him, He will take us through
Ezekiel 36:33, 34, 35 -
Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be built. And the desolate land shall be tilled, though it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fortified, and are inhabited.
Some days back we had received a message about famine and pestilence and yesterday night while I was doing my office work I was watching the news and the main story was about the dangerous Abola virus which is spreading through Africa.
The Abola virus is considered the most dangerous disease known to man as of today. It is said to be having 90 percent fatality. That means of 100 who get infected with it 90 die. There is no medicine yet found against this virus, the only thing they do is quarantine the patient and the sad thing is the disease spreads to mostly people working in the hospital handling the patient. The disease is so infectious that the person handling such a patient needs to be totally covered, every inch of their body. The virus spreads with just contact with any fluids of the patient. The worst part is symptoms are normal that it is almost impossible to know the patient is infected with Abola, for the patient only feels nausea and has stomach pain and starts with influenza like fever accompanied with chills.
The virus is so dangerous that UNO shuts down the hospital where the patient has been treated. The first time this virus was known was in 2007 in Congo wherein more than150 people died. By quarantining they managed to put a brake to this virus but now it seems to have come back with a bang for as for yesterday 3 African countries have reported it.
When I heard this, I thought if this spreads like bird flu did then imagine what would happen. But today the Lord is telling us even through these He will not forsake His people and the world will see His hand over them. He will not only protect them but will glorify Himself through them; He will make something wonderful of them. This same message has been repeated to us just 3 days back.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, your Word is instructions for us for our salvation. It not only tells us about You but also tell us about us and the things set before us through our journey through this life. Even though Lord You warn us about the things that are to come yet You tell us time and again 'do not fear'. Lord, You always make a way for those who love You, from all situations that may destroy them. Lord, we trust in You and know You are actively working and your results are always wonderful...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
