Order Out Of Chaos

Light Over Darkness 

In addressing the current White House conflict President Donald Trump can be quoted as saying, he likes "conflict" and listening to opposing viewpoints. President is also quoted as saying, “There is no Chaos, only great Energy!" No matter the term used by the president clearly what is going in our leadership it is the total opposite of order. Ultimately I serve a God of Order. As we look at the beginning of scripture in Genesis 1 the first thing God did was call the universe into order. Out of darkness we must continue to call forth life and light, even if it is counter cultural.
“The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep.” And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

One thing I know for sure chaos begets more chaos, it breeds on itself. We must make a decision to live a life of order and take action to maintain it daily. Order helps us get things done. It gives us an anchor so we’re able to deal with the bigger problems we face. Chaos hinders progress and growth. Chaos invokes feelings of fear, uneasiness and confusion, so it’s no wonder that people avoid it at all costs. Avoidance is not the answer, we have to face the darkness of chaos head on and move towards order.
“We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light the candle that can guide us thru that darkness to a safe and sane future.”

How Can We Bring Forth Order Out of Chaos?

With effort, we can bring order to our living spaces, but none of us can bring order out of the emotional and spiritual chaos of our lives. Only God can do that. He restores order to chaotic situations when we live as God intended—speaking no evil, being peaceable and gentle, and showing humility to all (Titus 3:2). Excerpt: Our Daily Bread


  • There is purpose is the process, even if you don’t understand it. 
  • All things work together for the good of those that love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 
  • Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. 
  • God is in control, our source for wisdom and guidance.
