Social Media Panic

Kenya's Chase Bank suffered "panic withdrawals on Wednesday, caused by "inaccurate" rumours on social media ( Social media constitutes a mixed bag -- blessings on one hand, and dangers on the other. In this case it  caused "hundreds of customers [to flock] to Chase branches and ATM machines countrywide to withdraw their cash on Thursday, only to find them closed." This situation needs positive spiritual attention and prayer so that innocent people do not lose their resources or be denied immediate access to funds that belong to them. The financial reports from the bank and its audits do not appear consistent. There are so many things we do not know in such cases. What can we do? 

Rather than worry over the unknown, we should focus on spiritual facts that are changeless and concrete. What are these spiritual facts? We can find them in the Scriptures. The more we collectively hold to positive truths regarding supply, the better the global economy, and the better your individual financial situation. 

Here are a few spiritual facts from the Scriptures to hold in thought. 
Phil. 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 
Prov. 8:1 ¶ Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? 
Prov. 8:10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. 
Prov. 8:11 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. 
See Mark, chapter 6, "loaves and fishes."
Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Matt. 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Let us pray that these spiritual facts manifest and aid those in Kenya who are dealing with this bank crisis. May God's love rest on them and bring justice and peace.
