Some gospel musicians in the country have called on people not to lose hope but rather keep faith and trust God as the world continues to fight Covid-19.
The pandemic, which continues to claim lots of lives globally, has left people in fear but gospel musician Thoko Suya said the pandemic will soon be a thing of the past.
“When moments like these come upon us, our peace is in accepting God’s sovereignty. He is God and He possesses all the authority to do as He pleases with his people,” Suya said.
The creator of songs such as ‘Amandikonda’ said all will be well and that people should not lose hope.
“The book of Isaiah 64 verse 8 says we are the clay and, God is the potter. Usage of clay is in the mind of the potter and therefore, may the name of the Lord be glorified in all our situations,” Suya said.
Favoured Martha, real name Martha Pingasa, concurred with Suya, saying God will not forsake his people and that He will fight the battles.
She then encouraged those who tested positive to keep faith, speak healing with positive energy and continue to follow the necessary measures.
“The book of 2 Chronicles 7 verse 14 says If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sins and I will heal their land.
“Therefore, during this trying moment, there is nothing that we can do than calling upon His name,” Favoured Martha said.
She said prayer is a significant weapon in fighting any sickness saying when she was admitted to the hospital at some point, she spent almost two weeks on oxygen but she remained faithful with prayer and got out stronger.
The creator of songs such as ‘Mawa Limafika’ and ‘Ondikonda’ said those who have tested positive to Covid-19 should t stand firm and trust the Lord and that they will be healed.
Zomba-based musician Andy Seko said fear is killing more people than the disease itself.
“Faith is powerful medicine; let us conquer fear for it is what is killing many. We need to strengthen our relationship with God, for it is where all the healing comes from,”Seko said.
Seko further appealed to all people to refrain from spreading fake news about Covid-19 but rather be agents of hope among those who have tested positive and those who have lost loved ones.
