God is neither an author of confusion nor disorder



 God is not the author of confusion but He is the God of order. Here is what the verse says:


1Cor.14.33 For He [Who is the source of their prophesying] is not a God of confusion and disorder but of peace and order. As [is the practice] in all the churches of the saints (God’s people), (AMP)


From the way God works, we can see that indeed, He is a God of order. Take a peek at the story of creation. It shows us that God did not just create the universe in a second. Of course, He is God and would have just commanded everything to appear at once without anyone barking at Him or restraining Him. But still, He chose to create each element of the universe one at a time (See Genesis 1). Why did He do this? I believe it is because He intends to teach us something. He intends to let us in on His nature. He intends to tell us something – He is a God of ORDER!


Consider the human body too. In my field of study, I have learned that humans are made up of billions of tiny atoms which are organized into cells. These cells are further organized into tissues; which are organized into organs; which are still organized into systems that make up the human body. Now this is the same for every normal human on Earth. One of the striking characteristics of living things that continues to amaze scientists is their organization – their order. Now, Someone created humans. And He created them in His image and likeness (Gen. 1:27). Who does the award go to? GOD! And if the product is a magnificent embodiment of order, what would you expect of a perfect Manufacturer?


Look at how the stars are aligned; how the sun shines every morning; how flowers open up and close as they behold the sun; the metamorphosis of a butterfly. Boy, you can’t help but marvel at the God of order. He is not just a God or order but He establishes His nature in Heaven and on earth (Job 25:2)


Now, as humans, we have been created in God’s image and after His likeness. Not only that, but, we are born of Him (1 Jn. 5:1). Since this is so, He expects us to be people of order (Prov. 28:2).


God does not expect us to be people who rebel against authorities, constantly stir up conflicts, are disorderly at work, or cannot even keep a room neat and tidy. God expects us as His children to do things well and orderly as His representatives and ambassadors here on earth (2 Cor. 5:20). 


Also, God is not a God of confusion. A confused mind is not in tandem with a true Christian’s mind because we have the mind of Christ – and that is not a playground for confusion (1 Cor. 2:16). If you’re confused today, why don’t you ask God to make your mind more like His? Then, also renew your mind with His Word. Cease overthinking and trying to reason everything out (that is not to say, do not reason at all), but just cast your worries on God (1 Pet. 5:7). You know why? Because He cares for you. Yes, you!


So, today, why don’t you imitate God’s nature of order in your activities? Ask yourself, how can I show God’s nature of order by the way I behave? And then go do God’s thing through you. You’ve got this!
