In a world fueled by social media and constant connectivity, the temptation to share every aspect of our lives is ever-present. From the latest achievements to future plans, it's become almost second nature to broadcast our every move. However, in this age of oversharing, there is a timeless wisdom that cautions against being hasty in revealing our innermost thoughts and plans. As a child of God seeking to grow in wisdom, there are compelling reasons why you should tread cautiously and refrain from sharing everything you are up to. In this article, we will delve into the biblical principles and practical considerations behind this advice, drawing insights from the Holy Scriptures.

The Deep Need for Social Attention

The rise of the internet and social media has exposed a deep need within many of us for attention and validation. We seek approval from our peers and often feel compelled to share our accomplishments and plans to gain recognition and affirmation. However, this quest for attention can have unintended consequences. Social media posts from years ago have been used to blackmail and cause controversy for people today, while personal revelations have been turned against individuals. While social media and technology have facilitated numerous positive advancements, their misuse and abuse remain prevalent in our modern world.

Love and Wisdom in Discerning What to Share

As children of God, we are called to love all people and bear the debt of love toward one another. However, this does not mean that we should be an open book to everyone. Love is not an approval of all things, and we must exercise discernment in choosing what we share with others. The Apostle Paul warned that actions done without genuine love are empty and futile. Love is not a blind acceptance of everything; it involves seeking what is true and honorable in God's sight.

Scripture Reference: Romans 13:8 - "Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law."

Selectivity in Sharing Visions and Plans

Our visions and plans are personal before they become public. Just as the prophet Habakkuk sought clarity from God before sharing his message, we too should be cautious about who we involve in our plans. Joseph learned this lesson when he faced betrayal from his own brothers due to his early revelations. While it is essential to seek guidance from experienced and God-fearing individuals, it is equally crucial to ensure that we are selective about whom we trust with our dreams and visions.

Scripture Reference: Habakkuk 2:2-3 - "Then the Lord replied: 'Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it lingers, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.'"

Beware of the Wolves in Sheep's Clothing

Not everyone around us has our best interests at heart. Some may pretend to be friends while harboring jealousy, spite, or even sinister intentions. We must be vigilant in discerning those whom the enemy has planted in our lives to hinder our progress. The Bible warns against trusting everyone, urging us to guard our lips and be cautious in whom we confide. Our ultimate confidence should rest in God, who is the safest and most capable person to entrust with our plans.

Scripture Reference: Micah 5:7 - "The remnant of Jacob will be in the midst of many peoples like dew from the Lord, like showers on the grass, which do not wait for anyone or depend on man."

When Encouragement Turns into Discouragement

As we move forward with our plans and dreams, we may encounter discouragement from unexpected sources, even from well-meaning individuals. Like Peter, who inadvertently tried to discourage Jesus from fulfilling His mission, some people may hinder our progress unknowingly. We must learn from Jesus, who rebuked Peter and pressed on toward His divine purpose. Surrounding ourselves with people who believe in us and encourage us is crucial for our growth and success.

Scripture Reference: Matthew 16:23 - "Jesus turned and said to Peter, 'Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.'"

Seek Genuine Support

Support from others can be invaluable as we pursue our goals, but not everyone cares enough to offer genuine help. Some may pretend to care but lack the true commitment to support us wholeheartedly. As children of God, we must understand that not everyone loves or cares about us as much as we may think. Seeking support from those who genuinely care and believe in us is essential. These are the friends who will stand with us in times of need and celebrate our successes without jealousy or envy.

Scripture Reference: Proverbs 18:24 - "One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."

The Power of Thanksgiving and Praise

In the midst of uncertainties and challenges, we can find strength and peace by embracing a heart of thanksgiving. Thanking God for His past blessings and current provisions not only honors Him but also opens the door for more blessings to come. Thanksgiving is a powerful act of faith, acknowledging God's hand in our lives and trusting Him for the future. When we thank God in advance for the blessings yet to come, we demonstrate unwavering faith and confidence in His promises.

Scripture Reference: Philippians 4:6 - "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."

The Angelic Protection

As children of God, we are not alone in our journey through life. The Bible assures us that God has assigned ministering angels to watch over and protect us. Though we may not see them with our physical eyes, their presence is real, and they are always on duty over us. Angels are God's messengers and servants, and they actively work to strengthen those who are fully committed to Him. Trusting in God's angelic protection brings comfort and assurance in the face of life's challenges.

Scripture Reference: Psalm 91:11 - "For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways."



In Conclusion

Wisdom and discernment guide us in deciding what to share with others about our plans and visions. While we are called to love one another and bear the debt of love, we must also be selective in whom we trust with our innermost thoughts. Not everyone around us has our best interests at heart, and some may even discourage us or seek to hinder our progress. However, we can find strength and peace through a heart of thanksgiving and praise, trusting in God's faithfulness and His ministering angels to watch over us.

As you journey through life, may you grow in wisdom and discernment, understanding the power of your words and the impact they can have on your future. Trust in the Lord and seek His guidance in deciding whom to confide in and share your plans with. Remember, the path to success is not only paved by your actions but also by your discretion and wise discernment in sharing your journey with others. Trust in God's protection and guidance, and you will find yourself on the safer, better, and winning side.
