“Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son whom I love. Listen to him!” Mark 9:7
We live in a culture marinated in words! The Internet and other forms of modern media and technology are filled with a staggering amount of information.
When granddaughter, Sophie was a bit younger, we learned a lot about animals, dinosaurs, unicorns, mermaids, etc. through various search engines. Now, at the age of 10 years, we’re going to more educational sites such as Google Earth, The Alamo, and Google Classroom. I remain astounded that I can see my home from space!!
Yes, there is a gigantic amount of information at our fingertips via modern technology. Yet, how do we know what to pay attention to?
How do we know fact from fiction, real from fake, who is truthful and who isn’t? After all, not everything online is real!
Our answer is in the Scripture above. God said of Jesus, “This is my Son, listen to Him.” Isn’t it wonderful that we have access to Him 24/7 if we would only stop and take the time to connect. When we sit quietly without interruption, slow our minds, read and reflect on a portion of God’s Word, we can sense His presence as He fills our hearts with His peace. Not just any ‘ole peace, but the kind that satisfies every need we have. That is the power of the Word of God!
Today, I am thankful for God’s Word at my fingertips; for the One who never changes; and the One who will always be my comfort and guide. Never will we have cause to doubt the accuracy of His Word. Only He is perfect in all of His ways!
