The era we live in is one of “make belief” – Nathaniel Bassey
Nigerian singer, Nathaniel Bassey in a recent IG post stated that the era we live in is one of “make belief”.
As a youth pastor he has come to the understanding that majority of the issues youth have is comparing themselves with the lives of others.
He also added that the youths tend to forget the benefits of God towards them.
He urged everyone to remember God’s goodness and stay giving thanks always.
He wrote ;
As a youth Pastor myself, I get to speak with a lot of young people.
And many times when I trace the root of their issues, one of the things I find, amongst other things, is this.
The era we live in is one of “make belief”
I have seen people take sad trips because all they do, all day, is focus, ruminate & meditate on the shines & blings that, some times, others intentionally want them to see, especially on social media, while forgetting the ENORMOUS goodness and mercies of God in their own lives.
And the moment you cease to see how good HE has been to you, you open a door to these tormenting spirits.
And all they make you see is how “terrible” your situation is.
And as you feed on this, you begin to get “weighed” down.
DEPRESSED. “THE- PRESS” begins to act on you- then you begin to make DECISIONS based on these feelings.
And the end of these decisions play out the lies you were told by the devil.
And later you tend to feel a sense of justification about the way your felt at first.
PLEASE GIVE THANKS! Spend more time in the word.
Focus on His goodness. Literally COUNT THEM.
As as you do, the Holy Spirit would shed more light on then bringing to your remembrance God’s faithful acts in your life .
Then even the things you are expecting and waiting on would begin to fall in place one after the other !
Nothing wrong with looking at other people’s successes.
But do so and be truly grateful for them, without necessarily doing so against the backdrop of your own situation.
This week BE GRATEFUL !
