3/6: What to Think About


One of the jobs of a journalist is not to tell us what to think, but to tell us what to think about. Journalists should be “out there” digging up facts and information and then objectively reporting it all to us so we can make quality judgments and decisions about matters that concern our lives. They tell us about things we otherwise would have had no knowledge of. So, we tune in to news programs and read the paper to be enlightened concerning what we should be considering.

In Jeremiah 33:3, God says, “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (NKJ). God operates here as our heavenly journalist. He knows facts and information – important stuff we don’t already know. He’s able to report it all to us so we can make good judgments and quality decisions about matters that concern our lives. All we have to do is tune in – call on Him – and He’ll show us amazing things we ought to be thinking about.

Instead of drowning in oppressive worry and floundering around wondering what you should do, read the “paper” that is the Bible. Call on God. Get ready to discover “great and mighty things which you do not know.” God is able to give you new ways of looking at, and then of working out, your situation because He’ll instruct you in exactly what you should be thinking about.
