Scared of bad news?
I know for sure you're not praying for bad news. But hey, some times, they come. Right?
Well, having your head around the best way to handle Bad news is a good thing. While not many just how to handle such news, here's a typical how!
How to handle Bad news!
Reading the word of God can get you equipped to face bad news.
PHILIPPIANS 4:8 NKJ
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.
The devil wants us to feed on bad news. God wants us to feed on good news. Which will you choose?
Bad news promotes fear. Good news promotes faith.
Most stations, social media and newspaper report news of Covid 19, we pick. It run with it and develop high blood pressure without looking at it from the word of God.
Numbers 13:33: And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
Nine of the spies saw, heard and reported bad news but Joshua and Caleb, reported Good news
Mumbers 13:30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
We live in a society addicted to news. What we get is mostly entertainment packaged as news, designed mostly to keep you watching, not to actually inform you of truth. Through it the world offers its views designed to manipulate your thinking and believing.
Our news program's most glaring fault is that they leave God out.
God is at work around the world. But when do you ever see a report on the good things God is doing?
Commercial news programs, of necessity, focus on sensational and bad news items, simply to keep people's attention, so they can sell products through advertising, and stay in business.
What is the result of feeding in all this bad news? Does it make you feel better? Does it encourage you? Does it make you a better person?
As a citizen you do have a responsibility to be informed on some issues. But most people can do so without spending significant amounts of time each day.
Many people spend hours each day listening to the "news" yet find no time to read the Bible, or listen to teaching that will build their faith and improve their life.
We are in a fight of faith. The devil is out to diminish, or even steal our faith in God. How smart is it for a Christian believer to spend time allowing the enemy to fill their ears, eyes, and thoughts?
What does 1 TIMOTHY 6:12 (NKJ) say?
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Be careful of what you hear because it determines who you are
SAY THIS: I will invest my time in God's good news.
