Topic: googled (04/10/14)

TITLE: The Original World Wide Web
By Chris Goglin


Google is a web search engine. By entering a key word in the space provided, people can search for almost anything their heart desires.

This sophisticated product can enable a curious keyboard operator to locate answers via videos, blogs, websites, or using the social network. Google constantly updates their product in service to their customers.

Did you know we have our own search engine through God and He is faithful in fulfilling our requests? Instead of using the modern World Wide Web, you might think of God’s web as the sovereign connection with believers. Our blog is a prayer chain that creates a divine network with others.

“Be persistent in prayer, and keep alert as you pray, giving thanks to God.” (Colossians 4:2 GNT)

Our dreams may be interpreted as our own supernatural video from the Almighty, guiding us in the right direction. God used visions or dreams to instruct Paul on his missionary journeys. “That night Paul had a vision in which he saw a Macedonian standing and begging him, ‘Come over to Macedonia and help us!’ As soon as Paul had this vision, we got ready to leave for Macedonia…” (Acts 16:9, 10 GNT) The power of the Holy Spirit conveyed in these dreams and visions exceeds any supercomputer designed by man.

In our computer search for questions, we need to have a reliable anti-virus program installed, such as Malwarebytes or Avast. This keeps our information safe from hackers that deliberately try to destroy communications. Similarly, God also protects us from harmful attacks as “He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases.” (Psalms 91:3 GNT) That is a secure connection!

Social tools are often used when googling the internet, such as Facebook and Twitter. Can you imagine interacting with the disciples or your favorite apostle about their daily lives? Well, you can. The Bible contains countless stories about exciting events from long ago. God’s drop down list enables a believer to search for just the right verse, using a commentary, paraphrased version, or audio selection. Each spiritual journey is designed specifically for us, accessing God’s infinite wisdom.

The next time you are starring at a blue screen in front of your computer, or inputting information into your ICloud format, try focusing on God’s creation and the flawless networks He provides for us. You will begin to realize there is still a vital resource available to enhance any virtual computer experience. If we place God into our modern perspective, using the tools He has provided along with technological advances available, we can find encouraging answers to our problems. Our support system is ideal as both man-made and spiritual search engines are always UP and accessible day or night!

Excellent job with the topic. I loved this! Great message and powerful ending. Pesonally, I find God and His Word fascinating, and nothing is more interesting than Him. Your wrap-up was intense. Thanks!

God bless~

While I don't completely agree with the idea, I applaud you on such a unique take on the topic. It was a fun read that did make me think. My only "red ink" is that you said "starring" instead of "staring" in the last paragraph.

Good work this week. Sincerely this is one of the more creative entries I've read.

very nice connection between the internet, google and God and his word.

We trust in the internet but our trust in God as creator and King of kings has to be a higher level of trust because it is by faith.

Good article.
