Ever wondered why anxiety, mental stress, blood pressure, restlessness in both the young and old, rich and poor in the society are on the rise daily?
Do you know these problems have ties to what these individuals hear and see regularly. These problems often ‘feed’ on information these victims consumed daily as news.
Now, have you ever wondered why the media houses love to be the first to broadcast breaking news. And have you considered why heart-wrecking sad news are all over our media screens as news flash.
But you won’t hear or see good news such as ‘a new addition to a family’ published on any Media screen free of charge.
Meanwhile, you will see gory news such as ‘an entire family wiped out in a single day’ published/broadcasted free of charge on media screens.[Let’s be reminded, Media Houses are set up to make profit — just like every business enterprise — and they have discovered from time immemorial that bad news sell rapidly.
Please note: Media Houses are more concern about their business profit, than the mental health of their audience. Even though we won’t expect them to, since we can’t ask them to close down business — just as we can’t tell a Coffin-maker to stop making coffin]
Therefore the onus lies with every individual to check what news he or she buys or feeds on, in order to salvage his or her mental health from the cheaply propagated ‘news-cancer’.
Remember the scripture says in Proverbs 17:22 KJV: “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones”.
Proverbs 25:25 KJV:
“As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country”.
Please check the news you feed your soul with; this will either build your faith or feed your fear.
Beloved the truth is, the world has no good news to offer you, just as you can’t give what you don’t have.
Good news is in no other than Jesus Christ. His news are good if you will hearken. His reward is peace and good cheer if you will abide in Him. [John 16:35]
MAKE THIS YOUR PRAYER:
‘LORD please Sanctify me through Thy truth, Thy Word is truth…keep me away from the evil news propagated by day and from evil reports that kill the faith of men…’
