Mark 4:39 (KJV), “And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm”
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:1-2 KJV).
Although God had created the heaven and the earth, the earth was without form, void, and covered in darkness. Although the Spirit of God was present, His impact was not felt. It was only after God had spoken that form, decorum, and light appeared. Note also that, they all did not appear once; it was light first, then firmament, then God spoke again, again and again before all the formlessness, voidness and darkness disappeared.
If it happened with God, it will most likely happen with you; you will have moments of chaos, confusion, and despair, but if like God, you have learned to speak to the chaotic situation, it is only then that the Holy Spirit will have what to work with.
Being born again is not automatic freedom from chaos, it however guarantees a way out of it and that way is tied to how well you engage the word of God. If God has spoken concerning an issue, keep speaking those words even if your current status contradicts what God has said.
Go into today determined to keep speaking the word of God to every chaos in your life. Remember, God spoke seven different times before he rested.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, make your word real to me that I may live by it.
