Ecclesiastes 7:13-14 NET “Consider the work of God: For who can make straight what he has bent? In times of prosperity be joyful, but in times of adversity consider this: God has made one as well as the other, so that no one can discover what the future holds.”
There are many things being said in the media, many predictions about the future. These can weigh heavy on the heart. And many of these foretellings go contrary to what God says:
Matthew 6:31-34 NIV “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things WILL be given to you as well. Therefore DO NOT WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Are you gonna let someone else paint your reality? And fill your mind with constant worries? Or will we listen to God who is the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega. (Revelation 22:13) He knows the whole story and how it’s gonna end before it even starts. That’s powerful! I think that’s the person we should listen to not the media, don’t you?😊
Use the extra time we currently have due to the pandemic to dive deep into God’s word. Hear His voice. Listen to what He is saying. It is the total opposite of the picture the world is painting for us. It always is.
