God’s word for times like these: Introducing a 10-day series from Scripture Union

‘God’s Word for times like these’ is a series of 10 inspirational Bible reading notes produced by Scripture Union International as the world tries to cope with the immediacy and the urgency of Covid-19. As the threat of the unknown looms large, as the anxiety of the heart overtakes the head’s ability to make rational decisions and as the world is in hysteria over toilet paper and food, reality has never hit home stronger. In such a situation, where do we turn? What brings us hope? What brings us encouragement? In the words of Peter, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life”.

So, whether you’re turning to God’s Word - on screen or off, in the words of Bishop William Walsham How,

O Word of God incarnate,
O Wisdom from on high,
O Truth unchanged, unchanging,
O Light of our dark sky,
We praise Thee for the radiance
That from the hallowed page,
A lantern to our footsteps,
Shines on from age to age.

May the Word breathe life into our tired, exhausted, lonely, discouraged, disturbed, anxious hearts.
