“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities; who
heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with
lovingkindness and tender mercies.” Ps. 103:2-5
In Psalm 103, David was commanding his soul to bless the LORD and think the thoughts of God
and not to forget His Covenant benefits, among which are the forgiveness of sins and healing
from all diseases – including Covid-19!
These are times we need to remind ourselves that:
- We’ve been forgiven, especially when we feel guilty!
- That we were healed, especially when our bodies feel sick!
- That we have been redeemed from destruction especially when we feel defeated and
time is running out!
Let me encourage you today! There is nothing the devil has that is more powerful than the keys
that have been placed in our possession! Paul said, “What shall we SAY to these things? If God
be for us who can be against us?” (Rom. 8:31) That includes Covid-19!
Paul seemed defeated and out of time when they stoned him to death and left him on a
dung hill! BUT – God had a promise for that in Ps. 9:13! “You lift me up from the gates
of death!” and God raised him from the dead!
Paul was out of time when he suffered shipwreck! BUT – God had a promise for that!
“When you pass through the waters… they shall not overflow you.” (Isa. 43:2) He made it
to shore along with everyone on board!
Paul was out of time when they beat him and Silas and cast them into the inner parts a
Philippian prison awaiting sentence! BUT – God had a promise for that! “The Lord gives
freedom to the prisoners.” (Ps. 146:7) God set him free and got the Jailer saved to boot!
Paul was out of time when he was bitten by a poisonous snake. BUT – God had a promise
for that! “I give you power to tread on serpents…and nothing shall by any means hurt
you!” (Lk. 10:19)
Don’t forget all His Benefits! Build them into your heart! Receive them as His gift to you! Let
them become abundant in your heart! Declare them! Remind yourself of them and let the Word
of God dwell in you richly! The warfare isn’t about the problem. The warfare is resisting the fear
of the enemy! Rise up in faith and receive all His Benefits and stand against Covid-19! It was
defeated 2,000 years ago – and nothing has changed since! The same God who always caused
Paul to triumph will do the same for you!
