The fool has said in his heart, “there is no God.” They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good. God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God. Psalm 53:1-2 (NKJV)

It is important for us to know that God is with us (Psalm 23:1). As we navigate this pandemic, people are studying and speculating, trying to make sense of our unique times. Despite all this, God’s Word for us is that we do not “respond”, rather, we lead! To lead is to anticipate the curve and take action instead of waiting for things to happen. Indeed, as children of God who are led by the Holy Spirit, the Lord positions us to provide leadership!

We need the wisdom of Christ to navigate these times, so that we are not taken aback or tossed about by reports in the news (Psalm 118:8). There are many instances in the Bible where the Lord prepared His people beforehand, or gave them instructions ahead of time that kept them safe before certain events occurred. This is because God is always leading instead of responding, and He wants the same for us. As a Church, when we look back at our sermons towards the close of 2019, up until the start of the lockdown, we can trace how the Lord fortified us through the Word, and also led us logistically!

Early in 2020, the sermons emphasised the need to be “Cross-transformed”, reminding us that the Cross is the Biblical response to life’s challenges that empowers us to withstand crises. The Cross reminds us that truth is in Jesus (Ephesians 4:21), and that we need to know Jesus. As we begin a study on transformational truth in the Psalms, the focus is actually on Jesus. For Jesus is the Truth, and also the Way - the Way to navigate life in these uncertain times!
