I feel my spirit is stirred this morning. So many headlines, video’s, tweets and posts. If we are not careful, we get sucked into the whirlwind of confusion. Who to believe. What to believe. Who and what to trust. Who to follow.
When we feel overwhelmed by this world, and I feel that way almost on a daily basis, I have to remind myself to keep it simple. Take a step back. Breathe deep. Surrender to my Lord Jesus and ask Him to sort it out for me. And it really is that simple.
Here is a reminder…
1 Corinthians 14:33 King James Version
33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
Read that carefully. “God is NOT the author of confusion, but of PEACE!!!”
He can give you peace when your world is crumbling before your eyes. He can give you peace when your heart is broken. His word is clear and true. Not confusing or deceiving.
The enemy, that old devil, is the author of confusion and the Father of lies!!!! Think about that for a moment. He is the FATHER of lies…
John 8:44 King James Version
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
The enemy is all around us, fighting hard to blind us and lead us astray. And when we are caught up in confusion and feel like we don’t know which way to go, that should be a big indicator that we need to re-evaluate our frame of mind and spirit.
Just stop for a moment. Remember, when you are consumed and weighed down with confusion, that isn’t coming from God. Ask Him to clear your mind. He will.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
