God doesn’t confuse.
Disorder is a “state of confusion.” God brings peace. Anytime life is racing out of control and chaos is reigning, the devil is in its midst.
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8 NIV)
Satan wants to steal the joy God gives you. Peace that surpasses all understanding is from God. The devil will do anything to steal God’s serenity from you. God will never bring you confusion; He gives you calm.
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7 NIV)
Years ago, I was working on a church production for Easter. As part of the stage crew, we were producing the Resurrection story. One particular night, everything was going wrong. Amid the chaos, a friend realized we hadn’t prayed. We were doing the work on our might, not asking God to help us. I will never forget the peace that ensued as soon as we asked God into the mix.
Don’t forget God.
In the busyness of life, we often leave God behind. Before your feet hit the floor, the day is already hectic. Raising kids, caring for spouses, working all have a way of pushing God to the side. Before you know it, you’re at the end of the day, not once thinking about God.
Just a few minutes can change the tone of the day.
Seeking God isn’t complicated. He hears all prayers, knows all hearts. And God wants His peace to reign in your life. God doesn’t want you living in confusion. God’s purpose for your life is to have life and have it to the full.
Live life to the fullest today by including God in your day. Let His peace lead the way.
Lord, thank You for creating order in a disorderly world. Forgive us for trying to manage the chaos without including You. Help us remember You today when the world gets crazy. If life is confusing, remind us, that’s not You. Let Your peace reign in our lives today and always. IJNIP. Amen
