The Coronavirus: How God Can Comfort You in the Midst of Uncertainty

If you’ve been connected to social media or any news source over the past few weeks, you’ve seen the constant stream of new updates — of countries on lockdown, travel restrictions, numbers of reported cases and deaths, not to mention reports on the global economy.

It’s no secret that the sudden onset of COVID-19, caused by the coronavirus, has become the central focus of the whole world, making many fear the uncertainty of what’s ahead. Everything feels chaotic and uncertain.

When life feels out of control and anxiety seems to overwhelm you, where do you find your hope, peace, joy and stability?

We invite you to remember the words of Psalm 46:1-7 (New International Version):

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; He lifts His voice, the earth melts. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

It’s necessary to take time to be real about the emotions you’re feeling — fear, anxiety, stress, confusion — but remember where you find your hope during times of uncertainty. We pray you find comfort in God’s presence today, remembering He has complete control and He is good.


Here are some resources to help you process the complexities of COVID-19.
