I feel like in today’s society, we get so caught up in the little things that really shouldn’t matter. We try so hard to be better than others. We want to be the best person out there and want others to love us so badly. But honestly, it shouldn’t matter. It shouldn’t matter if we have thousands of followers on Instagram or one follower. It shouldn’t matter if we get 500 likes on a picture or 10. It shouldn’t matter if that girl/guy is more popular than you. None of that should matter because the only person that we should be trying to please is Jesus. Nobody else.
If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31
Social media has made it really bad to where we feel like we aren’t good enough. We feel like we aren’t worthy of that girl/guy liking our picture. We aren’t worthy of someone commenting on our photo. When in the end, it’s all for show. It’s something that is there to entertain, but sometimes it makes us feel like we aren’t good enough.
Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God. Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a server of Christ. -Galatians 1:10
All of the social media stuff that we get caught up in doesn’t matter to God. Now, I’m not saying we shouldn’t post things on the Internet or want to be on social media. That is not what I am implying. I’m just saying that we shouldn’t obsess about it and let it control our lives. It isn’t that important. We don’t need to get too worked up about things on this Earth like social media and society’s viewpoint because to God it doesn’t matter. He loves you, indefinitely. He isn’t going to throw you away based on how many likes you get on a picture or how you look 24/7. He wants you to live for His view of you, not others.
But now, this is what the Lord says- he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”- Isaiah 43:1-2
So whenever you feel like you aren’t good enough for society or someone on this Earth just remember that you are enough for the Lord and that is all you need. Let your will to please God outweigh your will to please the world.
