If the News is Getting You Down, Then It’s Time to Change the Channel!

There seems to be a lot of bad news reported today in the media. Terrorism, violence, natural and not-so-natural disasters seem to happen continually. Even the weather report is often negative.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

When the news starts to breed anxiety and fear instead of courage and hope, then maybe it’s time to change the channel. I’m not suggesting that we bury our heads in the sand. It’s important to stay informed, but it’s also important to consider where we get our news feed.

It reminds me of a story in the Old Testament in the book of Numbers. Twelve spies were sent into the Promised Land to check it out before the Israelites would enter go to my site. 10 of the spies (We’ll call them Channel 10) reported about the giants in the land and predicted doom and gloom. Unfortunately, the people chose to listen to this news source and fear and anxiety was the result.

The other two spies saw the same things, but their report was different. “With God’s help we will win!” They too saw the giants but their perspective on the facts was vastly different because they included God in the equation.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Our world is challenging today, but I believe in a God who helps us become victors instead of victims. He gives us hope instead of despair. Faith replaces fear. I too am a news reporter. And I want to regularly communicate the living hope that God provides for us.
