The World Is In Chaos
But God Is In Control

“So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10

world-in-chaos Although current events increasingly indicate a world falling into a downward spiral and becoming scarier all the time, we who read God’s Word have a different perspective.

Believers and disciples in Christ are astutely ‘awake’ in recognizing prophecies from the Old Testament that in this time and age are currently coming to pass. The headlines about epidemics, famines, political turmoil, financial uncertainty, wars and famines and more have all been prophesied to happen in these end times, but wait! The good news is that God is in charge and in control of everything! He always has been - because God is Sovereign, always consistent and never changing. Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.”

A fair question is “why has all this turmoil increased in the last 50-60 years?” and one of the best answers was when Newt Gingrich said “A country that has been now since 1963 relentlessly in the courts driving God out of public life shouldn’t be surprised at all the problems we have.” This is not only true in the US, but other countries as well. As God and His Word has been ignored and often denigrated, so has the world gone, and the result has been chaos. Yet still - God has a given us His plan in the scriptures.

Thousands of years ago the Bible gave us good news where it proclaimed and prophesied the following:

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a child is given
the government will be on His shoulders…”

Isaiah 9:6

That prophecy was fulfilled in the birth of Christ and the chaos will cease in the future when Christ comes back to earth and restores order out of chaos.

Jesus is The Word, and the Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword! When you regard it as the final authority in your life, it will give you stability, safety and confidence when everything else around you gives way. Spend more time with it than the news and ask the Lord to give you His peace to settle the disturbing issues and deep concerns of this life no matter what you see around you, no matter what you may hear.

Make the Word your Shield of protection and the peace of God will fill you inside. You’ll be an overcomer and a strong example of faith to others who walk in fear.

There is no doubt that the ways of this world are extremely volatile and will get progressively worse, but determine in your heart and mind to live by faith, not by sight. Don’t let chaos enter your life, fearlessly commit yourself to the authority of God’s Word and there won’t be anything in this unstable world that can steal security from you!

God Bless Your Day
