The end of this article is my favorite part and I’ve posted it here:
How should we react to the threat of Ebola?
While this outbreak may have been a surprise for the world, it was not a surprise for our God. His unstoppable will continues under his inscrutable wisdom. Not one inch of the universe escapes the control of our Lord.
For those of us who believe in a sovereign God, we know we’re called to remain calm in the midst of the storm. We find confidence not only or primarily in the belief that science will control this outbreak or that we will not be affected. Rather, we hope in the Lord. As the psalmist said, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).
Let believers be the voice of peace amid the confusion. While much of this disease is still unknown, it is equally true that panic will not help us. The unbelieving world needs to see our trust in God amid this difficulty.
