We tend to complain about the pace of things; with technology and schedules and activities, it seems we have no time to think; to evaluate who and where we are. With priorities conflicting, family, work, leisure, the mechanics of daily living, things can get pretty confusing.
Yet one thing I’d like to stress today, if my words have any value at all: If you are experiencing confusion, it is NOT from God. That’s a popular distraction of Satan‘s, to have you believe that God is sending it your way. But remember–He’s a God of balance and order, not of confusion or chaos.
And He is a God of Peace. Seek His peace; shut off Satan’s big mouth, (yes, you can do it) banish Satan and he must flee. Get alone. Follow Jesus’ example. Go somewhere quiet and alone. Jesus will meet you there. Time after time we see Him in the Scriptures slipping off to get alone and pray. He knew the value of it. (see Mark 1:35; Mark 6:45,46; Mark 14:32-34; Luke 4:42; Luke 5:16; Luke 6:12)
And He highly recommends it: Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33) But don’t do it for “all these things”. Do it for peace. There is nothing–I mean nothing like it.
