During the Coronavirus Lockdown, Here’s What God Wants Most From You

by | Apr 27, 2020 | Purpose & Identity

As we all know, we are in an extremely trying time, the time of the coronavirus, better known as COVID-19. We have been shut in for a few weeks now. I am sure most of us never thought we would see a day like this.
I have seen God work in my life daily through blessings and miracles, but I felt this time was different. I believed God when He said I must trust Him because I have experienced what He is able to do concerning the day to day. This time, I felt Him pulling on me.
He was requiring more of me. More of my intention, more of my attention, and more of my mind, my emotions and my body.
He wants more! Anything we have placed before Him, He wants it all. Anything we depended on before Him, He wants it all. Our lives after this will never be the same. This is all biblical. Read about the Israelites being set free from Pharaoh (Ex. 14).
I don’t have a lot of revelation about this season other than that we must take the gospel to its original intent, and that is Jesus. We must go back to the original instructions as read in John 14:6: “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'”
We are to start learning how to live according to Acts 17:28, “‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are His offspring.'”
It is all about the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We are to lay everything at the feet of the Father. It is in this time we will mature in the things of the kingdom. It is in this time God will bring us into our original position for His kingdom purposes.
He will reveal why He created us and what we were created to do. It is in this time God will reveal to us the power we have, the love He has for us and how all things are working for our good (Rom. 8:28).
Take this time to go to the beginning of Jesus. Read the first six books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts and Romans. They are all about Jesus! Our movement is dependent upon the Holy Spirit, and our instructions come from our Father.

Allow Him to increase you to His fullness. Everything we need is provided for in Him. Rest in the Father (Ps. 37:7).
