In our present pandemic, God speaks. In Genesis chapter 1, we read ten times that God speaks. He speaks to the whole of mankind, but also speaks to us individually in our particular circumstances. In a sparkling cobweb or colourful autumn leaf, He speaks.
We hear His word giving us comfort and telling us not to be afraid. He says so many times in the Bible, Do not be afraid. As this morning I watched the dawn roll back the night clouds once again, I realised again that the God who is in control is saying, Do not be afraid.
