Does God Have to Check Our Facebook Status?
My husband, some family members and many of our friends do not have Facebook…. and they are quite proud of it. Some have it…but claim to never access it. Ha. And yes, there are creepers. Don’t deny it.
But I must say, I like Facebook!
There, I said it.
I get frustrated with the changes and the apparent loss of more privacy….but my word…I post things on Facebook for “500 of my closest friends” and I am worried about privacy? Really?
I could go to the “I spend too much time on Facebook and not enough time with the Lord” avenue. But I don’t do the “guilt and condemnation” thing because HE doesn’t do that. W.e may be “convicted” of the time we spend on it, but that is another blog entry
But I did begin to think….
Am I as honest with the Father as I am with friends on Facebook? Even texting has that personality. Easier to say things when the face is not seen.
But we don’t see the face of God. So what are we afraid of?
“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.” Psalm 118:8-9
He knows our hearts, He can read them. We really don’t have to say a word. But it helps US when we do….He wants us to be honest. He loves us that much. Communication is so important to Him. He created us…..we can talk, and listen.
He gets our frustration, our joys, our problems. God is our Abba Father, our Daddy.
He really wants to know our status.
IN CHRIST ALONE

I never thought of it like this before. Thanks for the encouragement to come to Him boldly and honestly!
The only way to approach our Daddy. He knows our hearts anyway! Thanks for commenting Sasha!!
This was great 🙂
What’s funny is a lot of friends on facebook now are having to post a status about, “I am spending too much time on you so I am going to delete you” or “I will be taking a large facebook break people”. . .it’s like more and more people are getting tired of facebook? I’m like you, I enjoy facebook and mostly seeing my relatives post family baby pictures and videos.
That is so true though–God does want to know our status…and He wants us to talk to Him like we would a friend on earth. He is so real. 🙂
He is indeed very real..thanks for your insight. Enjoy updating your status, with friends and Him!
