Dare to declare these truths over your life and family
No weapon formed against you shall propser, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the LORD. Isaiah 54:17 NKJV
The LORD is my strength and my [impenetrable] shield; My heart trusts [with unwavering confidence] in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I shall thank Him and praise Him. The LORD is their [unyielding] strength, and He is the fortress of salvation to His anointed. Save Your people and bless Your inheritance; Be their shepherd also, and carry them forever. Psalm 28:7-9 AMP

In the hards times God will protect us (impenatreble sheild) if we just trust in him. This a good word of encouragment to me with everthing abou the cronavirus.
Today, I had the chance to catch up with my teenage daughter as we walked along the waterfront park near where we live. She started sharing the success she was having running her small Christian life group with her group of girlfriends.
She was delighted with their progress. They have been working through the book – “Drawing Closer: A thirty-day devotional” by Wendy Robinson. She told me that the devotional had been a great blessing and her friends were enjoying it. They were getting a great deal out of it.
At a time when many parents find it hard to reach their teenagers, it made me realise how special, how in touch with God was my wife. My wife’s name is Wendy. She is the author of “Drawing Closer: A thirty-day devotional”.
If you’d listened to my daughter as she shared the positivity her and her friends were getting from my wife’s writing – it is testimony to the effectiveness of this book.
Teenagers don’t usually listen to their parents are the best of times! The fact that my wife’s writing has convinced our daughter and her friends to work through a 30-day devotional written by “mum”, is a great credit to my wife.
When Wendy first came up with the idea of this devotional, I remember her excitement. Everything Wendy writes is inspired by her daily prayer time. Wendy will not put pen to paper unless she believes God wholeheartedly wants her to communicate this message.
I know my wife’s heart. The day she completed this devotional, she prayed to the Lord that people would be touched. The fact that it has touched our daughter and her friends is blessing enough for our family.
