God in Technology

I’m technically challenged. I had trouble moving from the VCR to the DVD player. Don’t get me started on this new Blue Ray thing. I can’t really tell the difference. And I’ll never understand how you get all that music in one of those itty-bitty IPods.

My son was not issued school books this year, he got an IPad instead.

The new cars with all these gadgets? Just more gadgets to get me confused when I’m driving. I want to keep it simple. I carry a mobile phone, but it’s not a smart phone. I like the old days when the phone bill was about $20 a month. I don’t need a camera on my phone, I already have a camera. And I have a computer at home. Don’t need one on my phone.

Speaking of computers, every year there is something bigger and better.  You can now take your computer anywhere. And there is so much to do on line!

  • Facebook? I try.
  • Blogging? I’m learning.
  • Twitter? What’s a hash tag?
  • Instagram? I have no idea.

Have you noticed how many hundreds of channels there are on cable TV? Seriously, can we really watch that much TV? And you can watch TV on your IPad. I’m so glad  I have a 3rd grader at home to help me with all these gadgets!

 

The world has become faster and more technical. Where is God in all this technology?

The Bible tells us God is everywhere.

Jeremiah 23:24

Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?”

declares the Lord.

 “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.

  

Colossians 1:17

17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

 

That means God is also in technology; including the new IPhone, and the newer, faster computer. It just depends on what we use them for.

That DVD Player can show us godly movies. We can listen to Praise and Worship music on the IPods. I can place a call to a friend, even when I’m not at home. The cable TV brings worship services into the homes of many people.

I may struggle with technology, but I do know God will use technology for His purposes. By reading your blogs and writing my own blogs, I have met some of the most wonderful people that I would not have met without using technology. Many of these people are half way around the world. I am so grateful to have met you.

May you all be richly blessed through this thing called technology.

  1. I wrote about some of my ideas about new technologies in an article on one of my blogs:

    It’s about the possibility of stored information becoming obsolete/inaccessible as each new bit of technology overtakes its predecessor.

    Keep hold of your printed bibles – easily accessible at all times with no need for the latest gadget to make it accessible and readable.
