Keep Looking Up

Notice how every one is looking down? Noses are buried in mobile devices and computers. There are people texting and walking and unfortunately texting and driving! There are entire families looking down at dinner tables and meeting rooms filled with workers looking down at computer screens. Honestly, there are more people looking down now than ever before! 

When you spend a great deal of time staring at and being distracted by technology you spend less time looking up.  Can you even remember your life before you became one with your handheld device? Are you spending so much time looking down and being distracted by technology that you have been spending less time looking up at God and spending time with him? Be honest. Is your handheld device getting more attention than God is? 

Remember, the enemy wants you to look down. That is the place the enemy is most familiar with. If you are looking there you likely have your eyes off God. God wants you to spend more looking up and trusting him and less time looking down with your focus away from him. God won't try to compete with your text messages, the latest app you down loaded, video games, or Facebook. 

Practice looking up! Spend some time staring at Jesus through prayer, devotionals and in fellowship with other Christians. Challenge your self and those you love to put down their mobile phones and tablets and pick up the Word instead. God misses your beautiful face. Look up at him and let him see your precious smile. 

Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing. Isaiah 40:26
