Bad News - Bible Devotional 2nd July 2020

Post by Kefa »

Bad News

Philippians 4:8 NKJ 8 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.

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?

1 Timothy 6:12 NKJ 12 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.

SAY THIS: I will invest my time in God's good news.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
