1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.”
The other day I had a conversation with a friend and he said that ‘we confuse God and that it is a factor for some of the challenges we face as individuals”. That our confusion is the cause of many delays or our unanswered prayers.
This statement is very debatable but here is what I think and it’s open to discussion 🤩
On the one hand, cannot leave in chaos and expect anything good except God breaks all protocol for our sake. On the other hand, we do need chaos to appreciate orderliness.
Different Bible versions put it this way in 1 Corinthians 14:40 MSG
Be courteous and considerate in everything.
1 Corinthians 14:40 KJVS
Let all things be done decently and in order.
1 Corinthians 14:40 Mirror
But let it all happen with discretion and dignity
Some people thrive in chaos and some people embrace orderliness and are organized and laser focused, however knowing how God responds to you is the first of all religious liberation.
Those that thrive in order, know what they want, they have it all planned out and will do anything and fight anyone who stand to disrupt that sequence.
As for chaos, it is faith under pressure. Chaos helps you to appreciate order. Imagine doing a whole lot of things at the same time haphazardly and while it can be both physically and emotionally daunting, just one step in the right direction will sublime that disordered and confusing experience.
In fact some people attribute the success of a thing to its chaotic experience whilst ignoring the “realization moment’ when it all came together. The truth is at some point order came to play.
So, chaos is confusion and disorder, chaos is like mathematics. Imagine yourself trying to solve a simultaneous equation without knowing the formula. you need to work out the steps accurately in order to get it right.
Hence, You are right to be confused because in your confusion, you will find orderliness, courtesy, decency, discretion and dignity in your pursuit.
In conclusion, when someone describes you as being confused, there is a place of order you are reaching out to. God is not an author of confusion, He is leading you towards divine order and profound peace.
