Hope Questions for Covid-19 Season

I wrote these Hope questions at the start of the Covid-19 season for us to ask God. It is tempting to try and answer the big questions of life ourselves, but this is a time to go to His Counsel Table, look into His Appreciative Eyes, and listen to what He wants to tell us... His words are the words of life to us!

7. Ask Me how to help you not be within yourself but outside of yourself to help supply for others needs during this time in a safe way. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking only after your own interests but also the interests of others. Phil 2:3

18. Ask Me how I was there for you as a society, when in the last hundred years there has been five pandemics and even your children have lived through the bird flu, the SARS pandemic, the swine flu, and the Ebola outbreak. All of those were dire, Worst case scenario predictions. Now ask how I solved those and ask if I am able to solve these as well.

20. Ask Me how I solved a great depression, the economy restored, and then only a few years after that, a world war that lost 85 million. Then only twenty years after that, there was world war 2 after we had said there was no way we would have a war like that again because we were too advanced of a society, but I was able to raise you up from those big challenges. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law…so that the blessing of Abraham might come upon us. Galatians 3:13,14

21. So let me restate that, Ask Me how in 1914, men and women thought they were too advanced of a society to have a global war but they were wrong and ask Me how I brought you forth through that and then we thought we'd never do it again, but we did it. Only 25 years later and 85 million were killed and ask Me, how I brought you forth through that and ask Me how I brought it through the Spanish flu, which killed 50 million people with much less population. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil. Psalm 23 All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me, go therefore…Matthew 28:18

25. Ask Me for Me to be one of 165 AD - the devastating epidemic that swept through the Roman empire with so many dead inside cities that they just had carts and wagons pulling the dead and how a third of the empires population died, but ask Me how I restored and helped the people and even the priests were clueless or just not involved enough, nor were the doctors ready and the heart felt compassion as demand from stoicism and the plagues were meaningless and cruel. I will dwell in the shelter of the most high and rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust…with long life He will satisfy me and show me His salvation. Psalm 91

26. Ask Me how I've advanced people up from that place, ask Me how I advanced the Greco Roman people that did not know how to evacuate towns. They were more concerned about themselves and didn't tell the other towns and the level of hopelessness and fear made looting and killing prevalent. Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus Christ our Lord, seeing that by His Divine power has granted us to us everything pertaining to Life and godliness through the true knowledge of Him. 2 Peter 1:2-3

27. Ask Me how the earliest Christians expanded themselves and were showing mercy that simply dumbfounded the pagans and that the God that loved humanity and loved others brought people together into this place of loving Christ.

And you know how God anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit and power and He went about doing good healing all that were oppressed of the devil. Acts 10:38 And you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you…Acts 1:8 I send you as I was sent. John 20:20 And Jesus breathed on them and said, receive the Holy Spirit.

30. Ask Me how I was able to multiply a little food and water through these two or three believers there that the sick recovered instead of perishing miserably. He who believes on Me out of his inner most being shall flow rivers of living water [by the Holy Spirit]. John 7:38

31. Ask Me why the believers didn't flee the sick or the poor or the widow or the crippled or the blind or orphan. But they ran to them. Jesus call his twelve disciples to Him and gave them authority to drive out demons and to heal every disease. As you go proclaim the gospel of the Kingdom has come near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons freely you have received freely give. Matt 10:1, 8

32. Ask Me how the leader of the Roman empire said we had a colossal misunderstanding of those who were followers of the way that instead of fleeing the disease and death, they were ministering to the sick and they were low. They were admiring them and saying, "look how they loved one another," and this was heard all over the streets. None of this has escaped his notice, because this thing was not done in a corner. Acts 26:26

33. Ask Me how they fostered and how you can foster an atmosphere, not of mistrust, but trust. Not of indifference, but of love. Not of suspicion but of trust, not of violence but of love and care. Not of loneliness but of togetherness.

35. Ask Me how we, like the first church, can go beyond the precautions of quarantine into the ultimate protection of Love demonstrated with prudence, Instead of fear. God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound [self disciplined} mind. – 2 Tim :7

36. Ask Me how we can be followers of Jesus and show the world that it's in giving away our lives, that we find our lives. The key to greatness is in serving others. Matthew 20:26

37.Ask Me about how there could be an outpouring of new life and real hope instead of terror and flight. Ask Me how that could sweep the earth. Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature with signs and wonders and miracles Mark 16:15-20

38.Ask Me how the Covid-19 serves as a stark reminder that you are not in control and you won't live forever. Our life is like the grass that withers

39.But ask Me even if this turns out to be the biggest false alarm in history, that the opportunity to love will be the most vital take away from this experience.; Love never fails – God is Love, and as He is so are we in the earth. 1 Corinthians 13:8 ; 1 John 3:8,17
