This morning, I acknowledge that God is a God of peace and not disorder (1 Corinthians 14:33). I recognize that where sin grows, disorder grows along with it (2 Corinthians 12:20; James 3:16). In the original language, disorder means instability, confusion, and disturbance. It’s a restless, upsetting kind of word.
I pray for order! I pray for stability in my home and in my heart. I pray for peace, a settling down, a calm surface. I pray that my life manifests the orderly, peaceful work of the Holy Spirit. In small ways (like cleaning a disordered playroom or kitchen) and large ways (like ordering my whole life and work), I invite order and peace.
