In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Being quarantined does not mean we are defeated. On the contrary, we are more than conquerors! Nothing on this earth can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. Let’s cling to that promise today, and hide these comforting verses in our hearts.
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so deeply that nothing can uproot us from Your love. Help us to remain steadfast and not be swayed by idle words or false promises. During this time of quarantine, remind us that we are not defeated, but instead, we are victors in Your Son. It is in His name we pray, amen.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
It is crucial during quarantine that we keep our minds from wandering to the negative news around us. This Bible passage is the best reminder to intentionally focus on what is true, pure, lovely, and praiseworthy. I recommend printing these verses and posting them around the house for all members of your family to see.
Lord, thank You so much for the reminder to think about things that are worthy of praise. Please put a hedge around our minds, to block out the constant negative news we are hearing. Help us to be intentional about what we allow our ears to hear. In Jesus’ precious name, amen.
