How God makes sense of your chaos
July 31, 2012
You who have made me see many troubles and calamities
will revive me again;
from the depths of the earth
you will bring me up again.
There were two little boys on a field trip with their class to an art gallery to see an exhibit of modern art. They happened by a painting, and as they looked at it, they could see there was a nose over in one corner and an eye in the other corner, and it was all confused. So one little boy turned to another one and said, “Don’t you think we’d better get out of here before they say we did it?!”
Our world is coming to grips with the disorder that’s inherent in our fallen universe. And it’s being expressed in a way of thinking called “postmodernism,” and our arts and literature are a manifestation of that disorder. We see this disorder in our own suffering and pain, and in those seemingly random events that cause so much anguish in life.
Yet throughout Scripture, we see God taking that chaos and turning it back into order. He takes our mistakes, our pain, and our anguish, and turns them around for our good and for His glory. So when suffering hits, we know it’s not random!
Everyone experiences hard times. But in Christ, you can suffer with a purpose, knowing that God is taking the chaos in your life and will make it work for your ultimate good. And we have faith that one day, all suffering will end as we live forever in His glorious presence!
WHEN LIFE SEEMS CHAOTIC, TRUST FULLY THAT GOD WILL WORK EVERYTHING OUT FOR HIS GLORY AND YOUR GOOD!
