There are statistics online everday, reporting new coronavirus cases and new deaths due to the virus. You can go on social media and read about all kinds of conspiracy theories. All the media is focusing on is disease and death.
I've written about focus and how it is a faith seed. Focus is very powerful. I've also written about lower level focus. Lower level focus is a very powerful root of fear.
If you have higher level focus, it leads you into faith. Lower level focus will lead you into fear and intimidation.
There is a good story in scripture illustrating this very powerful truth. In the gospel of Mark 4:35-39, Jesus and the disciples got into a boat to cross to the other side of a lake. Soon after getting in the boat and sailing to the other side, a fierce storm arose. High waves were breaking in the boat. The boat had water coming in it.
Jesus was in the back of the boat sleeping. The story says the disciples woke Jesus and shouting, "Master, don't you care that we're going to drown?" The story goes on to say that Jesus woke up. When He did, He rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Silence! Be still! Suddenly the wind stopped and there was a great calm.
