So today I watched this movie called Holiday Rush on Netflix. It’s about this dad of four children named Rush, who is a DJ but loses everything and has to start from scratch. His kids were spoiled and he did not know how to tell them he lost his job. They did not know the value of family because they were rich. They had to move from their big house to their previous old little house. However with everything they went through it taught them a lesson; the lesson was that it’s not about what you have but who you have. They lost their lavish lifestyle but they still had each other.
Moving forward, it gave me something to think about. It made me think of the hard times we are all in with this virus. How everything is struggling from the people, our economy, our jobs, our resources, etc. Everything is crazy but we still have God, Jesus and each other. Maybe this is our lesson from God. Humanity is so consumed by the materialistic things that sinning became the new normal. The killing was getting out of control and the crime rate was going up. Instead of unity there was more division.
God doesn’t send harm our way but sometimes He will let the devil test us. Everything whether good or bad has to go through the big man first. He let COVID-19 rain down upon us so His people would confess their sins and repent. So that we will know who He is and that only Him and Jesus can save. Generations have only gotten worse that the teaching of our ancestors have been forgotten. People are no longer building relationships with Jesus, they are just treating Him like a religion. Building a relationship with Jesus means you have your own personal connection with Him.
Furthermore, this means you keep Jesus on your mind 24/7 because the devil will try to attack you at any given moment to try to distract you from your destiny. We needed a reminder to appreciate and love each other and the things around us. It’s more to this world than just trying to survive. I’ve been living in survival mode for 22 years until Jesus saved me. Jesus died on the cross for us, it’s only right that we share His love with the world. This world needs Jesus.
Imagine everyone setting up a prayer time across the world through social media to all unite with each other as we did with the blackout. “If we all would confess, repent, and pray for God to heal the land, in that instant everything will be healed. “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20 KJV)
