According to the Webster dictionary an enemy is a person who feels hatred for, fosters harmful designs against, or engages in antagonistic activities against another; an adversary or opponent. Ephesians 6:12 remind us, “ For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”
With that said, COVID-19 is not the enemy rather, the enemy is Satan. John 10:10 confirms, “The thief’s [Satan] purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My [Jesus] purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” We are facing challenges today that are unprecedented and during these times of uncertainty and adversity, it’s important to remember that the darkest of night comes just before the dawn appears. The days ahead for our Nation are destined to shine brighter because God is faithful even when things are spinning out of control! Our mission, while we are sheltering-in- place and/or social distancing is to stay faithful, prayerful, and obedient to God’s word and like Job at the appointed time we will all receive double for our trouble (Job 42:10). We will see God’s promises manifest in spite of this worldwide pandemic! As we watch from the sidelines, our selfless healthcare professionals and first responders diligently work to combat the spread of this viscous virus and formulate a vaccine we shouldn’t stop declaring, proclaiming, and decreeing the power of God’s word over our nation, states, cities, and communities. God will do what He hears us say! Numbers 14:28 confirms, “So tell them, “As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very thing I heard you say!!” You see; when we make positive declarations of faith, we are not denying horizontal facts, instead, we are confronting the facts with God’s vertical Word. So don’t think for one moment that God isn’t active in our current situation. What we need to do is continue declaring God’s words, morning and night, with supernatural confidence and authority. Victory, divine empowerment, and breakthrough has already being dispatched and released to each of us because one thing is certain God’s word will never return void (Isaiah 55:11) nor will He allow one syllable to fall to the ground!
