Bringing Light to Chaos

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

It was the picture of disorganization. There was no order, and nothing was certain. The world “had no form” (The Expanded Bible). The Hebrew word here suggests that there was confusion and a kind of emptiness. There was a “void.” (The Hebrew word suggests waste.) And it was a world of darkness.

Then, God acted to bring order. The first thing we see is that, by His Spirit, He was “moving.” The picture here is of observing, and watching carefully and deliberately. Brooding. Studying. Examining. And only after lingering did He take action.

He first acted by bringing light, and separating the light from the darkness. God was bringing order out of chaos. And as He looked at His creation, and the orderly world He made, God declared that it was “very good.”

Through His actions in creation, we see that He is a God of order. This is the picture of how God approaches our lives. He brings clarity to confusion. He replaces disorganization with organization. Uncertainty is replaced by certainty. Chaos is replaced by order and His plans. Emptiness is replaced by meaning and purpose. And any sense of darkness is replaced by His light.

God can have this kind of impact on any situation you face. Do you feel uncertain? Disorganized? Confused? Unsettled? Remember that He is a God of order. He can provide you with peace. He can give you plans and ideas. He can replace any uncertainty you feel with clarity.

Start with filling your heart and mind with His Word. Be careful to learn His principles, and apply them in your life. Commit your needs to Him, and ask Him to guide your thinking, and direct your path. Let His Spirit “move” on you, and penetrate every corner with His light.
