How can we anchor ourselves during a time when there seems to be a whirlwind of fear, panic, and negative news spinning around us?

Praying and meditating on scripture will always bring strength and comfort to us, but I believe another powerful anchor right now is to remember our heavenly Father’s past faithfulness.

Think back and remember how He healed you, how He provided for you financially, how He helped you through an unjust situation, or how He brought the gospel to a family member or friend.

God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8), our circumstances do not change who He is or what He does. He is always faithful and will provide for us and bring us through this pandemic victoriously.

Remembering how the Lord has been good to you in the past will also stir up thankfulness in your heart and create an attitude of praise. When we praise the Lord it takes our eyes off of our situation onto our God who is far bigger than any trial.

Praise God today for everything He has done for you knowing that He is faithful to do it again!

“Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.” ~ Psalm 106:1 NKJV
