Faith or Fear
Mindset and PositivitySpiritual

How are you responding to the current global situation?

Are you Fearful or ‘Faithful’ i.e full of faith or full of fear.
It is important that you respond rightly to what’s going on in the world and in your world right now.

News and updates of what’s happening all over the world is flying from all directions.

I’m telling you it can be challenging to be present and productive in light of what’s going on globally at this present time.

Unpleasant News

It seems that there is unpleasant news everywhere.

Uncertainty and fear is gripping the minds of many.
The start and spread of the corona virus (covid-19) from December 2019 seems to have made a lot of people to shift focus.

My heart felt prayers goes out to all the families and friends of all those who have lost loved ones to covid-19. I pray for comfort and fortitude to bear the loss.

I want to encourage myself and I want to encourage you not to give in to fear, but to be filled with faith and hope; and remain focused on who we are and what we are.

Back to Basics

Do what’s necessary – follow the government and public health guidance and take all precautionary measures advised.

Practice all the basic general hygiene.

Wash your hands regularly, this is the now the order of the day and the popular saying during these recent weeks.


The simple and basic things are usually the most effective and powerful, so let’s go back to basics.

Reminder

In addition to this, let’s remind ourselves of a few things:


We were reminded during the church service today that:

What we believe is important to what will happen.

The level of our belief does makes a difference.

God has power over every disease and illness.

We must rebuke diseases and declare life and health over our lives and bodies.

Speak life and health, healing and wellness over our lives and that of our families, neighbourhood and nation.

Focus on the peace and power of God.
