In Coronavirus Lockdown, the Lord Is Saying, 'Consider Your Ways'

For months, the coronavirus has dominated the news locally, nationally and globally. But what is the Spirit of God saying during the pandemic?

Minister Curt Landry says the Lord gave a word to him and to another friend who's a prophet on the same day. The word comes from Haggai 1:4-6 (ESV), which begins, "Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies in ruins? Now, therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways."

"I'm going to break that down," Landry tells Pastor Todd Smith on the Kingdom Ready podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. "When the Lord says, 'Consider your ways,' He's saying, 'You're out of alignment with Me ... you have put your paneled house above My house.' Let's face it; the numbers show it. If you look at people's checkbooks in the body of Christ, money goes to other things, which is idol worship.

"I'm not against any of those things, but the Scripture is very clear in Matthew 6:33, 'Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,' and then all other things will be added onto you," Landry says. He continues, explaining Haggai 1:6. "It says, 'You have sown much and you brought in little." ... We like to prophesy, but we don't like the work and the responsibility of what we prophesy. [The verse] says, 'you eat, but you don't have enough; you drink, but you're not filled with drink; you clothe yourself, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages puts it into a bag with holes'—and that's what's happened in the stock market. So all of this has to do with alignment."
