Connectivity Issues

Updated: Apr 10

Yesterday I woke up and after reading and breakfast, I went to work on the computer. I soon discovered that the Internet wasn't working. After checking the modem and usual problems, reconnecting, and restarting, I laughed. Perhaps everyone online during this time of "no place to go" had made the Internet crash!


Wouldn't it be funny if God stopped the global Internet, I mused. For, after all, the purpose of pandemics and historic plagues is to get people's attention to the real driving force behind daily circumstances and off our self-reliance. Does not God say, "Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10)?


Those eerie pictures of malls, Disney World, and tourist destinations with no people mean that a lot of people are "being still," but is their lack of movement driving them to turn to the Internet-- for news, entertainment, communication, and connection? What if that was gone? Would people then know that God can stop technology just as easily as He stopped people from building the tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9)? And He doesn't even need our permission to do so!


I called our Internet provider, who gave some tips that I had not tired and voila! It worked-- and everything was "right" with the world....the Internet still works.


What does it take for God to get our attention? Silencing our technology would certainly get a lot of people's attention!


But despite the Internet still working, perhaps we should seek Him today and see that He is who He says He is.


See the rest of Psalm 46 for more information!
