God of order

In this time of world chaos God is speaking to us about order - for He is the God of order:

 

Order: to arrange, marshal, organize, systematize, methodize mean to put persons or things into their proper places in relation to each other. Order suggests a straightening out so as to eliminate confusion.. He established the cosmos to last forever, and He stands behind His commands so His orders will never be revoked Psa 148:6.

What can the righteous accomplish when truth’s pillars are destroyed and law and order collapse? Yet the Eternal One is never shaken — He is still found in His temple of holiness, reigning as Lord and King over all. He is closely watching everything that happens. And with a glance, His eyes examine every heart. For His heavenly rule will prevail over all Ps 11:3-4  Stay focused on what He called you to do. Be sure to understand your position and place in this time - do not abandon or leave behind what He entrusted unto you.

People abandon God’s commandments just to keep men’s rituals.. Then he added: How skillful you’ve become in rejecting God’s law in order to maintain your man-made set of rules Mark 7:8-9. In crisis we do what we can and beyond to help, to assist, to serve and to encourage. But be careful not to be entangled just with the needs of others or their agendas. This is where we move out of His protection and we toil with our own efforts - that tends to burn us out or let us loose our way. Do not loose focus, nor perspective of what is the spearpoint difference you carry and are called to contribute. Your specific giftset is greatly needed and cannot be replaced.

For the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker says this: Ask Me about the things to come concerning My sons.. are you going to give Me orders concerning the work of My hands? Isa 45:11-12  Ask Him how to steward and maintain that what He gave you especially in these restricted times. Listen to His guidance how to apply yourself in new ways that will enable you to bring what is needed.

Thus says the LORD: Who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and of the stars for light by night? Who stirs up the sea’s roaring billows or stills the waves when they roar - the LORD of armies is His name: If My fixed orders and laws stops or departs from before Me, says the LORD, then the descendants of Israel also will cease from being a nation before Me forever Jer 31:35-37.

We must more than ever resist the giants of chaos, fear & anarchy to rule our lives - take your predestined place in God’s army.

Like the noise of chariots they leap on the tops of the mountains, like the crackling of a flame of fire devouring the stubble, like a mighty people set in battle formation.They run like warriors; they climb the wall like soldiers. They each march straight ahead in line and they do not deviate from their paths. They do not crowd each other; each one marches in his path. When they burst through the defenses weapons but they  do not break ranks. The LORD utters His voice before His army, For His camp is very great, Because strong and powerful is he who obediently carries out His word. For the day of the LORD is indeed great and very terrible causing dread, who can endure it?

And I will compensate you for the years That the swarming locust has eaten, the creeping locust, the stripping locust, and the gnawing locust— My great army which I sent among you. And it shall come about that whoever calls on the name of the LORD Will be saved from the coming judgment. For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be those who escape as the LORD has said, even among the remnant of survivors whom the LORD calls Joel 2:5, 7-8, 11, 25, 32.

We His Body must function as disciplined well balanced life giving force. But then each part must work in its design and in harmony. Contribute with an open heart stay in His strength and be a blessing - working together for the good of the whole Body.

I bless you today with a deep understanding and bold courage to stand in your God given position and to be fully activated in the Body and army of Christ Jesus - the Lord of armies.
