The source of confusion

Have you ever been in the complete center of God’s will and you knew that you were right with Him- and nothing made sense? You were confused, you didn’t what was going on, you were unsure about many things? Well, you probably can’t relate to such a situation because confusion and God’s will don’t really go hand in hand.

1 Corinthians 14:33 spells it out very clearly for us when it says, “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” Confusion is not something we are given from God as a reward for faithful service. Confusion is usually a result of sin.

Proverbs 4:19 says, “The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.” This “confusion” is contrasted with: “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” The idea of “perfect” here means established. So the wicked stumble and fall at unknown things, but the righteous or just, continually become more and more established.

My question for you today is simple. Is there confusion in your life?

If you are finding yourself repeatedly confused about issues in your life, or you’ve been having problems and you’re not really sure why, you may have been inviting confusion into your life by unholy living. Life isn’t difficult to understand. Life is simple. Honor God and serve Him. Cast your cares upon Him. Trust Him to handle everything.

If you find yourself in a pattern of confusion, unsure feelings, and doubt you may have some unconfessed sin in your life. Ask God to reveal what you must turn from in order to walk in the light again. God knows just what you need and knows just how to help you. You never need to live in any manner of confusion or doubt.

God doesn’t want you to live in any form of confusion or darkness. Don’t ever settle with that sort of condition! Live in the light as God intended you to!

When you ask . . .

Have you ever been overwhelmed by some task and you started to worry?  Then you suddenly thought of someone you needed. You realized that you knew a carpenter or an electrician or maybe someone who was good with computers. You  made the decision to call them and suddenly everything was ok.

Sometimes we need more than someone who is skilled at something. Sometimes, we need God.

Psalm 38 contains this sentence, “Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.” What a short and profound prayer. No matter what your problem may be, or what your worry is, you can ask God for help. You can call upon Him. There is nothing beyond his power or outside His control. Whenever you have something difficult to accomplish, or a problematic situation, call upon God. He can always help.

As 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” Literally throw your worries on God. Let Him bear the weight of your anxieties. After all, He has nothing to worry about, and He knows the answer to every situation.

Let’s ask God for help in any situation!
