Too Much Information, Not Enough Power

March 02, 2015

“The heart of the prudent gets knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.” – Proverbs 18:15

We live in a world of information overload and, as a result, we must look to God’s Word to find the true values by which we must live. Otherwise, our relationships and other problems will surely overwhelm us.

What we seem to lack is the basic knowledge that is so essential to the well-being of our world. “We are drowning in information, but starved for knowledge,” observes trend-spotter John Naisbitt.* The more information we acquire, the less essential knowledge we seem to absorb, often with dire long-term consequences.

So, what’s the answer?

When the foundations are shaking and you wish you could hide, remember that God is still in control. His power is not diminished by any turn of events. Nothing happens without His knowledge and permission. When you feel like running away–run to God. He will restore justice and goodness on the earth in His good time.
