Because of the pandemic, people are reconsidering whether or not to
go ahead with plans to physically gather with loved ones this Thanksgiving
and Christmas Season. We know that with God all things are possible. God
is well able to go before us and our loved ones and protect each of us from
coronavirus, the flu, pneumonia, all other hurt, harm, and danger even as
we would gather. It is, however, foolish to assume of God without praying
to Him first and seeking His will in each situation. Sometimes God will
orchestrate situations as an opportunity for us to exercise our faith and trust
in Him. (Sometimes) what appears to be a “No! Don’t do it! It’s not safe!”
scenario is actually a “Yes! Trust me! I’m God!” situation. Always pray first!
Never assume! For example, this past Father’s Day, I was invited by my
cousin to honor his elderly father who is a retired pastor.
The gathering was at a restaurant. Because of the pandemic,
I was hesitant. I then began to pray. I prayed the Psalm 91:10-11 Scriptures that
you see above over the gathering. So, I went! When we got to the restaurant, to
my surprise, not many people were there. Of all the tables we could have been
placed at, the host seated us at Table #91. None of us realized the table number
we were seated at until after we sat down. When I saw the Table #91, I knew that
Almighty God was confirming to me that He had heard the Psalm 91:10-11 prayer
I had prayed to Him in the car with my cousins in route to the restaurant. To God
Be The Glory! Pray first, though! Seek His will and direction.
