Since it’s founding in 1998 it has become a 100 billion dollar company. Founded by a couple of Phd. Students at Stanford, their company has become not only a word in our vocabulary but a way of doing life. The term and the company? Google.
They process over a billion searches each day, with some estimates of 25% of all internet traffic going through the site with 66% percent of the people in the world using the site as their preferred search engine; it is the most popular site on the internet. To show you how dependent we have become on it – recently they had a major outage and web traffic dropped 40% during the 5 minutes they were down. (All Technie News)
I wonder what would happen if we were as dependent upon God as we have become on Google? Today, we “Google” everything. Don’t know an answer? Just Google it. That kind of dependence can be unhealthy. But, a dependence upon God is just why we were created. Jesus surely modeled this. In John 5 He gets into a discussion about authority with some religious leaders. He explains to them His dependence upon His father when the scriptures record, “So Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.’ ”
Sometimes Google may let us down with an unexpected outage, but a dependence upon the father never will.
“So Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatsoever the Father odes, that the Son does likewise.’ ”
