There is much uncertainty and anxiety due to the profound effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many people have lost loved ones and are grieving. Many have also lost their source of income and are facing an uncertain future. Furthermore, the shelter in place measures, the lack of social interaction, and the uncertainty of knowing the end of this unprecedented season, have caused many people to lose their peace and their sense of security. Recently, the Christian Post carried the headline, “Pandemic spikes prescriptions for depression, anxiety, insomnia as expert warns of mental health crisis.” The pandemic has certainly fueled increased stress, worry and anxiety in the lives of many individuals.
But we as believers, who know God’s peace, have the opportunity to introduce our friends, neighbors and everyone in our sphere of influence to Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 ascribes to Jesus the title, Prince of Peace. Jesus is the Prince of Peace because He is the answer and the solution to any trouble. Jesus is Lord over sickness, disease, death, lack, worry, fear and anxiety. He encourages us to look up to Him for help. Psalm 121:1-2 says, “I lift my eyes to the mountains-where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth,” (NIV). Philippians 4:19 says, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus,” (NIV).
