Meditate on Scripture. Think of things that are true and pure. Stay in Jesus. Trust God.

These are four important principles of our Christian faith that I have been practicing since the corona virus pandemic began.

These biblical habits have kept me calm and enabled me to be at peace when so many others are anxious, anxious and even desperate in this very stressful time.

We take a look at some important scriptures related to trials and the guidance God gives us in the Bible – His Truths.

Answers to Trials Like a Pandemic – What the Bible Says

Jesus tells us in John 16:33 – “… in this world you will have trouble. But take courage! I have overcome the world. “We can expect to experience trials over the course of our lives, but our Savior, Jesus, tells us that he will give us strength and thinking to overcome any trials we face.

In James we read: “Count all joy, my brothers, when you meet tries of different types because you know that testing your faith creates steadfastness. And let the steadfastness take full effect so that you are perfect and complete and nothing is missing. “James 1: 2-4 We can choose this perspective that our trials are opportunities to grow in our faith and become more Christian.

In a similar way Paul tells us in the Romans: “We are also happy about ours To sufferknowing that suffering creates perseverance and persistence creates character and character creates hope and hope does not shame us because God's love was poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that was given to us. "Romans 5: 3-5 Our trials can strengthen our character if the Holy Spirit guides and strengthens us.

So we have a choice of how we react in times of studies and when there are significant stress factors like during this pandemic. If we choose a biblical answer, we can remain stable in the face of uncertainty.

Meditate on Scripture – What the Bible Says

As we read the scriptures, we must store their truth in our minds and hearts. "My child, never forget the things I taught you Save my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live for many years, and your life will be satisfying. Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a souvenir. Write them deep in your heart. "Proverbs 3: 1-3

In Joshua we read: “This book of the law will not deviate from your mouth, but you will meditate Day and night on so you can be careful to do everything that is written in it. Because then you will make your way successful and then you will have good success. “Joshua 1: 8

And the psalmist instructs us: “But his joy in the law is that Mrand according to his law he meditates Day and night. "Psalm 1: 2 When we meditate on the truth of Scripture, we can be reminded of the nature of God and His ways and promises. This can give us a sense of permanence, strength, and hope when the world is out Control device.

Think about things that are true and pure – our thought patterns and writing

The Bible has a lot to say about the meaning of our thought life.

When our minds are focused on God and his nature and goodness and ways, we can experience peace, even in the midst of trials. "You keep him in complete peace, whose The spirit has stayed with youbecause he trusts you. “Isaiah 26: 3

Here too we have a choice of how we react in our studies. We can choose to focus on our circumstances and the things in this world, or focus on the above. “Because those who live according to the flesh concentrate on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the spirit Concentrate on the things of the mind. Because to direct the mind towards the flesh is death, but direct the mind to the mind is life and peace. "Romans 8: 5-5 If we focus on the above, we can experience peace instead of fear.

Another relevant scripture that relates to this principle can be found in the Philippians: “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of honor, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever beautiful is whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is any, everything that is worthy of praise think about these things. “Philippians 4: 8

Stay in Jesus – What the Bible Says

Jesus said to his followers, “You search the scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the scripture points to me! But you refuse Join me to receive this life. "John 5: 39-40 Only if we" come to Jesus "- if we walk to him like in times of trials – can we experience the" life "that he offers. This is a life full of hope, strength, peace and Consolation.

Later in John 15, Jesus instructed his disciples how important it is to stay or stay in oneself. "Stay in meand me in you. Since the branch cannot bear fruit alone if it doesn't stay in the vine, you can't if you don't stay in me. I am the vine; You are the branch. whoever remains in me and in him it bears a lot of fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. “John 15: 4-5 To stay means to focus our thoughts and our hearts on Him. Sit quietly and read the scriptures. Hear or sing songs about God and his nature. Walk in nature and be reminded of the beauty of his creation. As we do this, we can experience joy, love, gentleness, and peace.

Trust God – an important scriptural instruction

Trusting God is an attitude we can choose. We have a choice of directing our minds and concerns to events like the corona virus or trusting God.

"Didn't I tell you? Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed Mr Your God is with you wherever you go. “Joshua 1: 9 If you can trust that God will be with you in a storm you are facing, you will not be afraid or worried. Your trust in Him can give you inner peace.

Let us remember the importance of trust in God:

"The Mr is my strength and my shield; my heart in him familiarand I will be helped; My heart cheers and with my song I thank him. “Psalm 28: 7

"Didn't I tell you? Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed Mr Your God is with you wherever you go. “Joshua 1: 9

"The Mr is my strength and my shield; my heart in him familiarand I will be helped; My heart cheers and with my song I thank him. “Psalm 28: 7

Jesus tells us: "Therefore I tell you: Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, about your body, what you will wear. Isn't life more than food and the body more than clothes? Look at the air birds: they don't sow and reap and don't gather in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you more valuable than them? "Matthew 6: 25-26 They are indeed more valuable to God than the birds of the air. Trust that he will take care of you because he loves you so much!

Finally, Paul reminds us in the Romans: "… we know that for those who love God, all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:29 God wants us to deepen this truth stuck in our hearts. If we trust this truth, we can experience his peace and hope.

Based on God's truth

About 15 years ago I experienced a personal health storm in my life. At the end of this "storm" I recorded the most important lessons that I learned:

  • We have a choice of turning to our faith and God, or dealing with it in an unhealthy way
  • Study the Bible to see how God guides you in dealing with the situation
  • Read faith materials to deepen your faith
  • Realize that God brings people and circumstances into your life to help you grow and support you
  • Pray for strength, peace, healing, and wisdom as you make decisions
  • Believe that God hears your prayers and will answer them
  • Ask friends for prayer and support
  • Our strong faith and trust give hope and encouragement

These principles of our Christian faith and those that I shared in this blog post are still relevant.

Finally, one of my favorite teachings of Jesus that relates to the trials and storms of life is recorded in Matthew.

“Everyone who hears and does these words from me will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and hit this house, but it didn't fall because it was founded on the rock. And anyone who hears my words and doesn't do them will be like a foolish man who built his house in the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against this house, and it fell, and the fall was great. “Matthew 7: 24-27
