Pilot Knob Lutheran          Privacy?                  5/1/2024

America is losing her privacy through the advancement of technology. Technology makes it possible to ‘spy’ on individuals, collect personal information and be recorded in many places while in public not to mention who is watching us through home security cameras. If you have an Alexa device has it ever spoken to you when you never spoke to it?

There is another ‘surveillance’ system that’s been around since the beginning of time: Psalm 139:1-3,7,13,16,23-24 Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I get up; You understand my thought from far away. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. Where can I go from Your Spirit. Or where can I flee from Your presence? For You created my innermost parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. Your eyes have seen my formless substance; And in Your book were written All the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. Search me, God, and know my heart; Put me to the test and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there is any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way. Right now as you read this God knows you are reading it. He knows what the purveyors of AI wish they could tap into; what you are thinking. 1 Chronicles 28:9b The Lord searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. Unlike AI and the human mind God cannot mistaken or misread what we are thinking or our intensions.

Can we crawl in a hole deep in the earth and disappear? No! In fact when we were a zygote in our mother’s womb God was there “putting us together,” and eventually launching us onto the road of life. There is something else He knows; He know every day of our lives to its end even before it begins.

Now that is an awesome God whose only desire is to bless, love, protect and live in harmony with Him, unlike many today who spy for reasons to control and limit our freedom.

The good news is that there is no place we can escape the loving presence of a holy God. May he lead us in the way everlasting.
