Prayer #71: For Remembering God's Sovereignty During the Coronavirus Crisis
Crises such as that due to the COVID-19 virus remind us how important it is that we remember and embrace the sovereignty of God. Our God is still on the throne, and in spite of how we may be tempted to think otherwise, He still reigns. We don't understand all His purposes, but He has them and He is fully in charge. ("For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor?"---Rom. 11:34). And ultimately, He will use the Coronavirus crisis to accomplish His sovereign will and purpose. Of that we can be sure.
Today, we pray that we, God's people, would rest in His sovereign counsels, even in the midst of the Coronavirus crisis and also, the present national unrest. Pray that we trust God fully that His holy purposes would be accomplished through all of this. Pray that we would not despair but believe that in God's perfect time, and in His perfect way, He will be glorified in all that He brings to pass through even the darkest of events and times.
Prov. 19:21: "Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established."
