And the world as we know it has officially come to an end. The corona virus or COVID-19 has ushered in an era of panic, sickness, and death for some. South Africa has waited and observed and actually thought it would have an immunity to this thing. Last week, that was proven to be an ill advised thought. Fast forward a week and now the nation will go on lock down for a period of 21 days.
What does that mean? Only the essential things will be open such as grocery stores, hospitals, clinics, petrol stations, pharmacies but everything else will be closed. For some small businesses, those doors will not open again. There shall be repercussions for the drastic action. We may see widespread panic in the few days before the lock down begins. Our daughter was bemoaning the fact that her social schedule will come to a screeching halt, but that is on a lighter note. Also the viewpoint of a young teen who doesn’t understand the immensity of what has hit the world.
Despite all of the doom and gloom, I know without a shadow of a doubt that God knew of all these things before they even happened. I know that I will not fall prey to panic buying, fear, gloom and all that comes with that type of stuff.
Why? It’s not because I am better than anyone else. I understand that God knew that I would be living in a time such as this and I’m here for the right time and moment for my purpose and destiny to be revealed. Is it for fame? No. Is it for notoriety? No. But, it is for me to be living as an exact representation of the Father on the earth for such a time as this.
Do I know what that will look like? No, not completely and I’ll leave that up to God as He directs my paths. I am excited for what lies ahead. Not everyone will understand what I am saying but that’s okay. Those in the household will.
I encourage others to take this time of isolation to truly push into God. Seek His face. Wait and listen. We are in for one crazy ride and let Him be the conductor of where we go. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. He is my Peace. He is my Joy. He is my Shelter. He is my Father. He is my Source. He is everything to me.
