Does this mean Christians who are trusting the Lord are not supposed to contract Covid-19?

“10 Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of My Righteousness. (The progression in this Verse is most precious: “I am with you”; but He comes yet nearer: “I will strengthen you”; and still closer: “I will help you”; and finally, He throws His arms around His Child and says, “I will uphold you.”)” Isa. 41

The story of Martha and Mary teaches the Believer that His Voice makes the difference (the Lamb of God). I believe their brother Lazarus will agree.

His Disciples said, "What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?" (The Disciples were right! The wind and sea did obey Him, and so does everything else. So why should we fear?) His Voice makes the difference!

Just remember that the Lord's Grace is greater, His Blood is stronger, and His Name is higher, than anything in life. Apply the Cross to the problem and receive all the benefits of this resurrection life.

I'll repeat my question (from above)...Does this mean Christians who are trusting the Lord are not supposed to contract Covid-19?

This spirit of infirmity will not touch the Righteous! A Righteous person is a Child of God whose Faith is placed and maintained exclusively in Christ Jesus and His Finished Work at Calvary Cross where the victory was won. Rom. 4:5

Since there is only One who is righteous I will take your answer to be "only by His grace".

Yes. His name is Jesus.
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
(Rom 3:10)
This is why a Child of God is the Righteousness of God by Faith in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 5:21). In other words man cannot achieve this without being in Christ.

The Bible says in 2 Cor. 13:4, that Jesus was crucified through weakness. Which it had to be because Gods Grace is only made perfect in weakness. Therefore, through weakness Jesus was crucified that He may taste death by the Grace of God (Hebrews 2:9). As Children of God we get to taste that same death in Christ daily by picking up our own cross (which can only be done by trusting His Grace which is made perfect through our weakness by placing and maintaining our Faith exclusively in Christ and His Finished Work at Calvary Cross where the victory was won) and walking with Christ in the newness of life (His victory). Rom. 6:3-5, Rom. 8:17, Gal. 2:20-21, 2 Cor. 4:11, 2 Cor. 12:9-10, 2 Cor. 13:4, Hebrews 2:9

The fruit that a Child of God bears comes only by Righteousness which is by Grace (Gal. 2:21). Grace only comes through the weakness and death of Christ (2 Cor. 12:9-10). Therefore, Grace is only made perfect through weakness (not our flesh); but only by trusting and placing and maintaining our Faith exclusively in Christ and the Cross. This is the only way Grace flows in a Child of Gods life. This Child of God is considered weak, humble, and broken before God. (THE BEATITUDES MATTHEW 5)

Christ’s righteousness is reckoned to our account by faith. We receive the new birth the same way...yet who can say they are without sin this side of eternity?
Anyways, physical death comes to the Christian and it may come in the form of COVID-19.

If I do my part the Lord is faithful to do his😀😀😀😉
2 Timothy 2:12-13 NKJV
[12] If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. [13] If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.

Faith in Who and Faith in What, that we become a Child of God?

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

whether a believer or a non-believer, there's a cause for 'death'========================================

This is simply not true or scripturally sound. There have been many of great faith who have prayed for healing or restoration but have not received it. All healing is accomplished at a time of God's choosing and not of our own. I guess that all those that are sick or have died were not righteous, not a single one. Your claim is insensitive and not scripturally sound.

John 1:12 (KJV) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
“12 But as many as received Him (some did receive Him, and some do receive Him), to them gave He power to become the sons of God (constitutes one of the greatest Promises in the Word of God), even to them who believe on His Name (Faith in Christ and in what He has done for us at the Cross alone can make a person a “son or daughter of God”):” John 1 :12
