How often do we quickly run to the Lord for wisdom and answers regarding life, or the next purchase (or whether to purchase it at all?). Do we turn to Google or Yahoo answers first? It may be quick and easy to find answers online, but are they the answers we need? Sometimes we need to re-prioritize and re-adjust our starting point. God knows all the answers. He knows where your next pay check is going to come from. He knows what he’s doing when you have everything planned and scheduled out and then there’s a last minute change that throws your schedule entirely. He understands what you’re experiencing when a sudden crisis appears in your life. He knows when it’s wise to invest in a new electronic or clothing item for your wardrobe, or when to patiently save. He is an infinite source of knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Yet God can be the last One we turn to. He becomes a “backup” instead the first source.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be like Saul, remembered at the end of his life as not seeking guidance from the Lord. Certainly the internet and information available to us when used well can be exceedingly beneficial, yet it can also divert and distract us from the true Source of all knowledge and wisdom.
May we look to the Lord always, and seek HIS face continually!
