Bible Study was extremely good last night! One of the interesting things that we discussed, was that how we (including Christians) often use Social Networks as emotional outlets; voicing our frustrations, our hatred, loneliness, bitterness, confusion, etc. for the entire world to see. But the negative emotions that we spew out on Social Media, should be taken to the LORD in prayer. 1 Peter 5:7 says to cast ALL your cares on HIM, for He cares for you. Someone commenting on our statuses may bring us temporary comfort, but that's not enough. WE WANT A RESOLVE!
Philippians 4:6 says "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." ..... John 15:7 says "If you abide in me [Jesus Christ], and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you." ..... And Mark 11:24 says "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
PRAYER WORKS! So the next time we feel the urge to vent, let's Sincerely pray instead. The Seasoned Saints often say, "A little talk with Jesus makes it right." Amen??
