It would be like reading Psalm 105. This Psalm talks about the covenant God made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and how God kept his side of the agreement as the people left then re-entered the Promised Land of Canaan but written from God's perspective. What reminded me of Covid 19 was the plagues in Egypt. We read the story from the people's point of view in Exodus, but in this Psalm, God tells what he allowed to happen and why. It makes for interesting reading.
I have previously written about how God has been so faithful to me over the years, guiding my path in life even when I did not know this was happening, - till I realised the implications of what he was doing and all for the best! From my perspective, this all happened to encourage and grow my relationship with God, so that now I can rely on God to help me in situations which I can or cannot control.
This was the same for the Hebrews as God gave them their own land as part of the old covenant or testament - verse 45 "that they might keep his statutes and observe his laws". This was the people's responsibility in this covenant, yet down through the ages, they forgot their part of the agreement, turned away from God and were forced out of their own land. This was the visible sign of a broken agreement, the spiritual or theological aspect being more significant.
Yet despite all this, God made a new agreement or testament in the coming of the Messiah, Jesus, and now the agreement is open to all people.
So, how does God view Covid 19? I don't know, but in a round-a-bout way, it can be a reminder to us, that God is still in control; he loves us just as he loved the Hebrew people in their time of slavery in Egypt, and he wants to continue and grow our relationship with him.
It is up to us how we respond to this - be aware that God has some interesting things to say in Psalm 95.
