King Jesus, who can certainly handle it all, offers me rest. He offers you rest, too. And he’s powerful enough to follow through for any of the billions of people on this planet who would cast their weariness upon him.
God has promised that all of our pain and suffering will matter forever. He will use it all for your good! See, God has redeemed you, and there is a sense in which he has redeemed everything that happens to you as well. What Satan means for evil, God promises to use for your growth. What might have destroyed you without the covering of God’s grace and protection can never destroy you now because God has promised to use it.
When you’re in a season of being locked down, look up. Pray. Read. Meditate. Sit silently and listen for God to speak. Listen to praise and worship music. Write and journal. And see how God shows up.
Don’t live by fear, walk by faith. Don’t waste time worrying about tomorrow, but do wisely prepare for the future. And never, never stop loving your neighbors on Jesus’ behalf!
