When what you know to do is not enough to save you, take cover in the shelter of the most high God. He is able to deliver, heal, protect and exempt you and your loved ones from being afflicted with whatever is affecting others. God is stronger and mightier than any deadly disease or plague. God has promised that “No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling place, for He will give His angels charge over you and your loved ones” (Psalm 91:10-11). Covid-19 is a plague, but if you are able to believe what God has promised without doubting, it won’t come near you.

Read the true life story below and know that God is faithful to save and protect you.
During World War II, a USA marine was separated from his unit on a Pacific Island. The fighting had been intense, and in the smoke and the crossfire he had lost touch with his comrades.
Alone in the jungle, he could hear enemy soldiers coming in his direction. Scrambling for cover, he found his way up a high ridge to several caves in the rock. Quickly, he crawled inside one of the caves for fear of being killed. As he waited, he prayed, “Lord, if it be your will, please protect me. Whatever your will though, I love you and trust you. Amen.”

After praying, he lay quietly listening to the enemy begin to draw close. He thought. “Well, I guess the Lord isn’t going to help me out of this one.” Then he saw a spider begin to build a web over the front of his cave. As he watched, listening to the enemy searching for him all the while, the spider layered strand after strand of web across the opening of the cave.

“Ha, he thought. “What I need is a brick wall and what the Lord has sent me is a spider web. God does have a sense of humor.”

As the enemy drew closer he watched from the darkness of his hideout and could see them searching one cave after another. As they came to his, he got ready to make his last stand. To his amazement, however, after glancing in the direction of his cave, they moved on.
Suddenly, he realized that with the spider web over the entrance, his cave looked as if no one had entered for quite a while. “Lord forgive me,” prayed the young man. “I have forgotten that in you a spider’s web is stronger than a brick wall.”

Trust in God’s protection even as you observe all precautionary measures against
The LORD is our help in times of trouble.
