“Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
—Isaiah 54:10, NIV
Our world has been shaken by the novel coronavirus. Many things that once felt secure—such as simply going to the grocery store to buy what we need—became uncertain. Lives lost, jobs lost, people confused and wondering what to believe . . .
Yet God’s love for us is unshaken. His plans are still in place, and His compassion is our constant companion as we face the future.
And as new as this may be to us, it is not a new thing for the people of God. Throughout the history of the Church, God has asked His followers not only to be willing to care for those in their own families and communities, but also to go beyond that in being generous with what God has given them.
It’s a hard thing to be generous in a time of uncertainty. It means trusting God in ways that stretch us. But God knew exactly what resources we would have at this moment and what we would be able to do with those resources. The promise we have seen throughout history is that when we trust Him in the midst of uncertainty, He does immeasurably, unimaginably more than we believed possible.
Thank you for trusting God in this season and continuing in your prayers and financial support for Biblica. I hope you can see in this newsletter how God is using the resources you entrust to us in amazing ways. And I know that through your faithfulness, God will work in your heart to bring you ever closer to Him.
