That he speaks to you through His Word and not what some fallible person has written on Facebook.
There is an app that I continue to see pop up on Facebook. It is called, “On this day, God wants you to know…” And then it has some sort of spiritual sounding phrase about how awesome I am and that today I need to just realize my awesomeness. Now, if you read this blog and also subscribe to that app on Facebook, please know that I am not judging you. I am simply hoping to encourage you.
Can God speak through Facebook? Well if he can speak through donkeys he can speak through Facebook. But that doesn’t mean that I go every morning and chat with a donkey in the hopes that God will reveal Himself to me. I know that God has revealed Himself already to us through Jesus in His Word. So, that’s where I go.
But Scripture is more difficult to read than a 4 line snippet. I’d rather just hear a few little words about how I’m “a being of immense power and breathtaking beauty”. These little sayings “sound biblical” because they are written in spiritual sounding language. But often they are not biblical. And they are not a message from God.
So today, I encourage you unsubscribe from this false prophet and open up God’s true Word. It may be more difficult, but at least it’s not meaningless rubbish—it REALLY IS God’s word and God promises that it is profitable.
Be sure to check out my follow-up post where I will teach you how to write a “message from God”.
