Read Monday’s post here: Prayers for Revival: Search Me, O God
If you missed Monday’s post, start by reading it here. Revival begins with a humble heart that is willing to to say, ” Search me O God.” Each day this week we will focus on a different area of our lives to ask God to search our hearts for anything offensive within us.
Today’s “Search Me” prayer:
Search me, O God, and know my heart. See if there is anything offensive with me in regards to how I use the internet.
Search Me, O God, for I use the internet:
The internet is a wonderful and useful tool. But if we are not careful we can easily get caught up in using it in ways that could be offensive to God. Naturally, if we are looking at porn or have an online relationship that dishonors our wedding vows, we have something offensive within us. But what if you spend more time on your computer, phone, ipad or other electronic devices than you do with your spouse or children? Would God find that offensive too? Are you surfing the net during the pastor’s sermon? Are you watching movies or video clips on TicToc that God would claim are offensive?
Spend some quiet time alone with God and for anything He reveals to you, seek His forgiveness. Ask God to convict you of any time you are using the internet in a way that dishonors him. If needed, ask a friend to be an accountability partner. A good way to change the time you spend on the internet is to spend that time in God’s Word or prayer. You could use it to listen to Christian podcasts that would help you grow in your relationship to Christ. I good rule of thumb is to ask yourself if Jesus was sitting next to you, would you look at that site with Him? If not, change what you’re looking at.
