Psalm 48:14 ” For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.”

We’re receiving guidance from many different entities right now…from the CDC, the Federal Government, and the State Government…not to mention all the local Health Departments.  And all these parties involved are attempting to manage and direct us during this pandemic to the best of their ability.  But as Believers, we need to also look to Godly guidance.  God’s direction through His Word can not only guide us, but watch over us, and speak to us. (Proverbs 6:22)  His Word leads and directs our course as we listen and obey…for it tell us in Isaiah 58:11, “The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.  You will be like a well-watered garden , like a spring whose waters never fail.”

I Chronicles 4:10 ” Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And God granted his request.”

What Jabez prayed was pretty simple and straightforward.  He asked for divine guidance, protection, and for the Lord to expand his circle of influence around him.  And guess what?  God gave it to him!  Don’t ever think that God is too busy with the breaking news of the day to listen to your prayers…He’s not.  Your prayers are equally as important to Him as anything happening in the world today.  And remember, there’s tremendous potential power within a simple heartfelt prayer.
