2 Chronicles 20:3-12,14-22
– This disease can cause us dis-ease.  Stay focused. Don’t let it.
– Don’t saturate yourself with the news.
– Don’t be distracted by what is going on.
– In addition to the distraction, we also have idleness.
– Peter was overcoming storms because he kept his eyes on Jesus.
– Distractions, uncertainty and idleness will take our focus off of God.
– We have no power against the virus.
– When we don’t have power, when we don’t know what to do – we have to stay focused on God.
– We have to be still and know God. We cannot know God if our hearts and minds are racing 1000 miles an hour.
– The people of God got the victory because they kept their focus.
How to keep our focus
1- Keep looking to God. (Psalm 121:-2, 123:1-2, 25:15)
– Avoid looking at things that won’t help you. (Psalm 101:3,119:37)
– Faith will get us through this.
– Faith will allow us to hold on until God’s mercy steps in. (Hebrews 3:1)
2 – Guard your heart. (John 14:1, Proverbs 4:23, Psalm 112:1, 4-8)
– When we guard our heart, and our heart is fixed on God, even bad news doesn’t move us.
3- Remember God loves you. (Psalm 91:14-16)
– God makes a promise to those who love Him.
– Because you focus on Him, remain focused on Him, He will deliver you.
