What would it be like if: We were as attached to God as we are to our phones? What if we talked to God as much as we text or play with our phones. Or what if all phone communication was broken as we know it? All phone lines were cut and all towers were down. What would it be like if technology as we know it today could no longer be, but our direct line to God got stronger? Is it possible that technology has become an idol in our life, taking the place of our time with God?
I have found my self at times listening to worship music on my phone and then my mind begins to roam in another direction (face book, Instagram, and other social media platforms) causing me to be distracted from my original intent of spending time with God in the quiet place where I can hear him speak. Just Him and me isn’t just Him and me when all these other distractions come into play. Even that which started out to be a good thing (listening to worship music, listening to biblical, teachings) can become an idol if you let it.
It is easy to get distracted with the daily routine of life. When our time with God is no longer the passion of our heart but a daily routine. We need to take another look at the position of our heart.
As Jesus and the disciples continued on their journey, they came to a village where a woman welcomed Jesus into her home. Her name was Martha and she had a sister named Mary. Mary sat down attentively before the Master, absorbing every revelation he shared. But Martha became exasperated with finishing the numerous household chores in preparation for her guests, so she interrupted Jesus and said, “Lord, don’t you think it’s unfair that my sister left me to do all the work by myself? You should tell her to get up and help me.” The Lord answered her, “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.” Luke 10:38-42 (TPT)
The more time you spend with the person of the Holy Spirit the more you get to know Him. The more you know Him the more you love Him. It’s not about you and how much you love Him. It’s about Him, and how much you realize His love for you. It’s about posturing your heart before Him in the quiet place of rest with Him. Not being distracted by the things of this world but sitting at His feet.
Holy Spirit lead us into a deeper revelation of who you are. Help us to open the communication line in our life’s between Heaven and earth, so that it sets a fire within us to worship you and you alone.
