God or Google

“Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation.”

Psalm 62:1

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:19

We are coming to an age where uncertainty is a thing of the past. Most people take every question, fear or curiosity to Google or social media. No longer is there a need to be anxious, in fear, or in doubt. It seems the answers to all of life’s questions, trivial or deep, are just a few clicks away. Never again do we have to wait for an answer. We don’t have to wait on God.

    The high tech and social media giants don’t care about you. Social media is training (brainwashing) this generation and the next to certain thought patterns. These thought patterns do not include Jesus and reliance and waiting on God.

Has Google Replaced God?

Google is the closest thing to God on this earth, or so it seems. Google knows all, sees all, remembers all. Like God, Google is good, right? The company motto is “don’t be evil.” Evidence of Google’s existence is abundant, this “god” at our fingertips is visible, instant and omnipresent enough for most people, so no faith is required.

    Does Google answer prayers? If you are in need or have a dilemma, how easy it is to turn to Google. With Google’s seemingly instantaneous answers to the urgent and faithless, it sounds wise and efficient. But are those of faith in Jesus falling into the same trap of trusting in Google? “If God’s not giving me instant answers, maybe He’s too busy. I’ll turn to someone who will give me fast, easy answers.”

    But are we really getting answers from Google, or just mere distractions? Is our desperate craving for instantaneous knowledge and guidance tearing us away from our Father?

God or Google: The Keeper of Your Secrets

Why do we entrust our deepest thoughts, most complex questions, fears and sometimes innermost secrets to weak and finite Google? Unlike Google, God does not control which answers you receive by a programmed algorithm. Instead, as your loving, truly omniscient Father, he knows precisely what is best for you.

    When you draw closer to God and turn directly to Him in prayer, you open up an infinitely more powerful source of help. God already knows your needs and He’s waiting for you to turn to Him. When you close your eyes of distractions; when you are still and turn to Him first; you are talking to your very best friend. He hears your voice as you call out to him without the benefit of Google or social media.

    Sometimes the best thing for wondering, doubting and questions is just to wait. Wait on God. He is there. Draw closer to Him and you will hear His voice. If you feel distant from God, it’s not God that has created the distance. You need only to draw nearer to Him. He’s always there… in the very same place.

    The world and all its wisdom, whether through Google or any other online source, will give you instant gratification. It may feed you for the moment, but starve you for Eternity. Instead of bringing light and life, it can leave you in total, eternal darkness.

God or Google: Who Will Forgive?

Will Google and social media forgive and forget? Barring God’s intervention, the answer is no. Every keystroke you have ever entered, every place online you’ve ever visited and even things you’ve slowed down to read, but didn’t click. With all of this information and their nearly-psychic algorithms, Google, social media, and the internet knows you better than most all of people in your life combined.

    Let’s be honest: God also keeps a 24/7 surveillance record of all you do—better than Google and the internet can ever dream. But God knows your heart. And God forgives. With His precious Blood to cover your transgressions you can be washed white as snow. Mercy and grace are only God’s to give. Google will never forgive nor ever forget.

God or Google: Who Cares for You?

Please know that I’m not saying that using Google, social media or the internet is inherently wrong. It’s great for checking out reviews for kitchen appliances or researching other minor subjects. But I implore you to be conscious of God’s place in your life over Google. Next time you have questions, concerns or fears, perhaps we should be slower to go to Google and quicker to turn to God in fervent prayer. And we should wait upon God, rather than rely on the instant gratification of Google. Google did not give its life for you and Google will not bring you through eternity.

    One last thought: If you are not on the internet, your children and grandchildren likely are. Now is the time to share with them your reliance and peace of trusting in God over Google.

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace that passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4: 6-7
