Be Anxious for Nothing 

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 
Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) 

It’s easy to panic in times of great uncertainty. With the growing current concern over the coronavirus, all of us need to take the necessary precautions by following the instructions given to us by medical experts and our government leaders. 

But as believers, we also need to remember that nothing happens outside God’s control or care. Psalm 18:2 calls the Lord our “rock,” our “fortress,” and our “deliverer”. God knows what we are going through with the current coronavirus pandemic, and we can give Him all our fears and anxieties. 

The Bible instructs us in Philippians 4:6-7, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (NKJV)” 

Keep your focus and priority on God always, giving him all your fears and anxieties, and live with the assurance that He is in charge of everything, all the time. 

"If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things—praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts—not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs. They may break our bodies (a microbe can do that) but they need not dominate our minds." 
- C.S. Lewis “On Living in an Atomic Age” (1948) in Present Concerns: Journalistic Essays
