Francis Chan: God Might Be Allowing COVID-19 to Bring Us Closer to Him
Author and speaker Francis Chan says God might be allowing this time of isolation during quarantine for the purpose of connecting with Him. He says this time may even be a gift.
"There's a God in heaven; the Bible says that He sits on this throne in unapproachable light with lightning, thunder and fire all around him," Chan says. "There [are] a hundred million angels worshipping Him, and yet it says that being yearns jealously for me; He yearns jealously for you. Maybe this time of isolation has a purpose and the purpose is, He wants to be with me.
"He says, 'I'm just going to stop you for a while because I, Almighty God, want to be with you. I want to connect with you.' ... The worst thing you could do right now is just get frustrated and stressed out, and try to fix everything. This is a gift to you."
