‘Beyond social media posts, people are going through a lot’ – Joshua Mike-Bamiloye highlights reasons to be grateful to God
Gospel film editor and song producer Joshua Mike-Bamiloye has shared via his Instagram page how grateful he is to God despite all the challenges he faced this year.
According to him, it is unwise to be grateful to God for a particular reason, but reflecting on God’s faithfulness over him even though it could have been withdrawn, yet God never did, is enough reason to be grateful to Him.
He added that another reason to be grateful to God is the fact that he is privileged to have direct access to God’s throne. He vowed never to take the privileges for granted.
In his words;
Of all the feelings I have in this last quarter, gratitude is the biggest of it all. It sounds cliché to say “I’m grateful to God for…”
But when you understand that God had every right to give up on me but he didn’t, you’ll see why I should be grateful.
We never really see beyond what’s posted on social media but people are going through a lot! That I have access to God’s throne is a huge privilege and I’m never taking that for granted again.
GFNG had earlier repored that Joshua Mike-Bamiloye reacted to the smartphone addiction that is gradually eating up the young and old, yet unchecked, and has found it’s way inside the church also.
In a tweet made some weeks ago, Joshua Mike-Bamiloye said a major sign that phone has become an addition to it’s user is when the user is unable to resist the urge of using the phone inside the church.
Writing further, Joshua Mike-Bamiloye explained that using phone to browse social media applications even when in the presence of God is a sign that the habit has become an addiction and should be checked.
He added that it is a very dangerous habit.
In his words;
“Using your phone during a church service (browsing through social media, WhatsApp etc) is a major sign of addiction.
The hold on you is so strong that you would rather disregard God’s presence than refrain from using the device for a few hours. This is dangerous.”
