As a measure of precaution and planning ahead, I am encouraging everyone to reevaluate what they would need if the state of Minnesota would decide to mandate everyone to “shelter in place”. If this would be enacted, what would you need to live, possibly confined to your home for a few days to a few weeks. Do you have it? Are you prepared?
Do not panic or go to fear, as I explain why I am stating this. This is Thursday, March 19. Last night on channel 9 news the governor hinted at the fact we could go to the “shelter in place” scenario. Today I was informed that certain individuals who are higher up in our state government said that the state is seriously considering doing this.
So now that we have the knowledge that this is being contemplated, I believe wisdom (which is planning ahead according to the knowledge we have) would say that we should prepare for this scenario in case it takes place. Not out of being driven by emotional fear, but looking at the facts and what is being said and being ready for this to take place if it happens.
I AM NOT SAYING THIS WILL TAKE PLACE. I am saying that we are being told that it is being seriously contemplated.
So my advice is that we prepare the best we can just in case the “shelter in place” order is given. if it never happens, we have not lost anything. If it happens and we’re not prepared, that could prove more difficult.
“Possess your Souls” (Luke 21:19 - NKJV) and let’s move forward in faith knowing the father knows what we have need of right now. He will take care of us.
Continue walking in the blessing.
