CORONAVIRUS POSITIVE THOUGHTS 27 ( Less is Greater, Greater is less)

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16 v 33

“Take Heart”

Woke up this morning and
And life as you know it
Looks nothing like the kinda life you knew before

All of a sudden
Fear stole the headlines
And it don’t feel safe to even step outside your door

In this world you will have trouble
But I have overcome the world

So take heart
And take a breath
Let me lift that heavy weight up off your chest
Take my hand

I know it’s lookin’ dark
But when the world falls all around you
I won’t let you fall apart
Take heart

Do you remember singin’?
Back when you were younger
He’s got the whole world in his hands
Well, that’s still true

I hold your family, all your friends, and all your loved ones
And even when you’re barely holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ you

So take heart
And take a breath
Let me lift that heavy weight up off your chest
Take my hand

I know it’s lookin’ dark
But when the world falls all around you
I won’t let you fall apart

Take heart
Take heart
Oh, take heart
Just take heart

In this world you will have trouble
But I have overcome the world
Oh, in this world you will have trouble
But I have overcome the world

So take heart
And take a breath
Let me lift that heavy weight up off your chest
Take my hand

I know it’s lookin’ dark
But when the world falls all around you
I won’t let you fall apart
So, take heart
Child, take heart

Take heart I have overcome the world.

Since the fall in the Garden of Eden and the first Adam’s sin we have been told that in this world we will all have trouble.

Being a Christian does not give us a charmed life in that respect we are all equally affected but as a Christian we are wise to the enemy and we believe that God has over come.

That Jesus, the second Adam has already overcome at the cross and resurrection and that He will come again in due time and He is our Hope in this present time.

Meanwhile I believe people are being drawn to seek out God, faith and their place in this world and life at this time.

That God is calling to many and there is a greater awareness, spirituality and need deeply sat in many individuals, a readiness to hear communicate in prayer and recognise God.

There has never been such a time as now where the church especially and many others are Coming together to serve and love in our communities.

It is my belief that we are being positioned for a miracle.

Miracles may take many ingredients some of which on their own are not very savoury or palatable but blended together in just the right proportions are beautiful and good.

It may be that some of the calamities arising from a broken world and bitter in themselves give rise to a beautiful aroma and taste when complemented by the blessings and opposite.

They then point us to God’s glory and our salvation.

God’s ways explained in any other way or words would be out of our understanding but experienced never forgotten and understood exactly.

Much like the mystery of child birth to the new first time mother words will never describe it only the experience.

The illustration is God the creator has the whole world in His hands but He embraces it as a loving Father who wants it to be as He planned it and He will protect it and us until that time comes.

We can be assured that He will not let the Fallen world fall from His grasp.

Two bible verses that come to mind:

Jeremiah 29:11-14 – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile

Isaiah 26:3-4 – You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.
