In what sometimes seems like chaos, God has a perfect order, but not everyone can see that.


As I sit here looking out over the beautiful scenery that God created and how it all fits together so perfect.  I can look into my own life and see God’s hand at work, and my trust is strengthened.  In what sometimes seems like chaos, God has a perfect order, but not everyone can see that.

 

Some people just can’t accept the concept of the existence of God. They see no particular order in the universe that would demand the existence of a grand Designer behind it all. They can find other explanations to satisfy them about the origins of life on earth.  Some know that there is a Creator, but only as someone to acknowledge from a distance. They see his divine order and the power of his hands, but they don’t have any personal connection with “him/her/it/whatever.”  Then there are those who come to know about the one true God by hearing the Gospel message.  They’ve heard that Jesus died on the cross for their sins and rose again offering them new life, and if you believe you will be saved.  Then you will never be alone God will come to live in your heart.  But then life happens and they still feel alone and disconnected from God.

 

As believers in Christ, we must keep in step with the Spirit "Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit." Galatians 5:25.  Life can change in the blink of an eye. Our lives can go from contentment and happiness one day to complete pain and despair the next. Yet though tragedy and heartbreak, we can still walk with God, God is with us and will sustain us through any situation.  Does this mean nothing will befall us during our time this side of heaven? No, but it does mean that as we go through life on earth, we are helped, comforted, and strengthened by the Spirit through our situations. If you feel God is not with you, will you take a step towards Him? Do you believe and trust Him?  This is what the Lord says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord.”--- “But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.” Jeremiah 17:5,7

 

Sometime we believe and still don’t trust.  Trusting means living with the faith that everything is going to be okay, you say no that optimism. In a way optimists see a good outcome in every situation, as Christians we should too.  We have the word of God which tells us how this is all going to end.  If we believe His word to be true, then we need only to trust it.  Trusting means that you know a powerful and competent God who is in full control.  He will catch you when you fall and He will emerge victorious no matter what happens in your life.

 

This is my Prayer: God help me to see Your perfect order in what may seem like chaos in my life.  Holy Spirit I hear Your voice and feel Your tug at my heart, guiding and directing me.  God give me the strength and power each day to stay in step with You.  Lord teach me to not only to believe Your word to be true, but to trust it.  In Jesus name, Amen.
