Comfort Among the Chaos

By Madison Sumiejski

It is in everyone’s daily lives…the chaos of the world.

Someone could be viewed to have the most perfect life and there would still be chaos found. Chaos is the devil’s tactic used to deter you away from God’s presence. The devil uses worldly chaos to try and create a barrier between you and God. He portrays chaos as something that God has put in your path. The truth of the matter is, God would never put something in your path that could potentially harm you. Sure, there will be bumps in the road that may lead you to believe that God does not have your best intentions in mind. However, this is a lie the devil wants to engrave in your head potentially leaning you away from the presence of God. You have to make the choice on whether you want to believe what is right in front of you in that second or whether you want to look at the whole picture through God’s eyes. Jeremiah 29:11 states, “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” With this little insight, how could God possibly create barriers that would leave you questioning God’s love for you? That isn’t how he works. You see, God isn’t sneaky, his blessings are evident if you choose to look towards the truth. But of course, if you focus on all the bad in your life, your eyes will be blinded from the truth that God is FOR you and is NOT against you.
