Modern media outlets are the nuclear weapons of spiritual warfare.It is not a well kept secret that I'm a huge advocate for media fasts. I use to think I was exempt from the law of GBGO (garbage in, garbage out). Being honest, I'm about as exempt from it as the law of gravity. Like many things, I was blind to it while standing in it. There is also the principle of noise. It is harder to hear and focus on God when various other things are playing. There is a third principle that made a media fast powerful. When you are truly seeking to know God, and you take action to try to make that happen, He is faithful. He always honors it. Our God doesn't play hide and seek. He runs to us the moment we get to the property line.
Be mindful of your diet.
