Researchers have argued that globalization is one of the reasons the current pandemic has spread so fast. Globalization compresses the time and space aspect of social relations. Globalization, according to experts, involves the intensification and acceleration of social exchanges and activities. The internet relays distant information in mere seconds, and satellites provide consumers with real-time pictures of remote events (Steger, 2003). The intensification of worldwide social relations means that local happenings are shaped by events occurring far away, and vice versa. The big questions most people seem to ask is where and how does God come into play in all of these. Is it not through the hand of God that all of these intensifications are designed?

The plans of God have always been consistent for humans in the face of the latest technology. Even in an intensified world that has altered human relations, we may be able to provide a physical explanation of the spread of the virus. One thing we should have in mind is that God is a good God. In John 10:11 we read: “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd would die so that he can save his sheep.”

God’s plan for our lives is never to send sickness and diseases to afflict his children. In Ex. 15:26. For I am the Lord that healeth thee. His plans are to heal and not afflict his children. His nature is to provide wellbeing for his people.

Most people that claim that God is behind this plague because of the lessons they learn from it seem very divided when the argument gets push further, arguments like shouldn’t you want to contact COVID-19 to learn a lesson? The answer is usually “NO.”

At these challenging times, I want you to understand that God’s plan is to heal and not to destroy. He is a good God.  The being behind this destruction is the devil. Psalm 103:3 states this about God “he healeth all thy diseases.”
