I once heard a pastor say, “In the end, all of our time on social media will be evidence that indeed, we did have time to pray.”
The online world is entertaining and informative. It pulls us in and before we know it a lot of time has been lost. During that time — it persuades us, molds us and subtly changes us.
Since the Garden of Eden, Satan has been tempting mankind to search for wisdom and happiness in all the wrong places. The on-line world is a cheap substitute for God’s word and God has not called his children to seek out information or seek to be entertained – instead he has called us to seek him!
Join me on this video as we take a closer look at Isaiah 36-38 and discuss how muddled thinking leads to muddled living and how social media might be affecting you.

As I said in the video – King Hezekiah was rewarded for seeking God and his reward was time. God gave him 15 more years of life!
Do you wish you had more time? One of my favorite books is written by Elisabeth Elliot and it is titled: Discipline – The Glad Surrender. In it she writes:
Time management, begins for the Christian with time set aside for God. Other things cannot fall into peaceful order if this is omitted.
Time management begins with our time spent with God because how will we know how to spend our time if we are not communicating with God and asking him to show us?
So many times I find myself stressed out and too busy and then I realize that I have put more on my plate than God wants on my plate. Then I have to do the hard work of removing things from my plate.
Elisabeth Elliot says:
There is always enough time to do the will of God.
Do you know what the will of God is for you?
Self reflect for a moment…
How is social media affecting you?
Remember, muddled thinking leads to muddled living.
Let’s not be so quick to seek pleasure and comfort from the online world and instead seek God first.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
We only have one life. Don’t waste it.
