REBUILDING RELATIONSHIPS

May 4, 2020

Our daily lives consume so much of our times. Everything about this quarantine is not negative. There are several positive aspects of being quarantine.

  1. To keep us and our families safe while the storm of this COVID-19 is passing over.
  2. To rebuild our families.
  3. To rebuild our relationship with God.

Inside the homes, there is peace, love and safety from the danger of the outside world. God is keeping us from things that could have been.

In Isaiah 26:20, God has spoken: Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be past.” In the past, we have spent so much time working, balancing families and children school activities. We see family members daily. Do we listen, communicate or know what they are going through in their life? We rush home from work, rush our children to ball, band, cheerleader and gymnastic practices.

God have curtailed our chores and given us the time to spend with our families and Him. We should use this time to have family prayer, family Bible Study and to thank God for all His many blessings. Since many are not working, we do not have any excuses for being too tired or too busy to attend church services. Since we are on our electronic devices daily, we can use the same device to pull up virtual church services without leaving home.

Spend some “one on one” time with Jesus. Use this quiet time to study and engage in a meaningful relationship with God. Hearing about Jesus does not constitute a relationship. To know Him, we must pray, study, seek Him and invite Him into our hearts. When we diligently seek Him, we will find Him. The Apostle Paul had a hunger to know more about Jesus. “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” (Philippians 3:10)
