God is not the author of confusion, but of peace…
— 1 Corinthians 14:33 (KJV)
Adapted from the resource Ending Your Day Right – by Joyce Meyer
Are you confused? Is there something happening in your life right now that you don’t understand? Maybe you’re baffled about the way things happened in your past, or you’re worried about how things will play out in your future.
Many of us today suffer tremendously with confusion, but that was never God’s plan. He doesn’t cause confusion—He always wants to give us the clarity and peace we need. He doesn’t want you to stress out trying to figure out the answers for everything in your life—He knows what is going on and why, and He’s in control. He doesn’t want you to feel overwhelmed…He wants to help.
That means you don’t have to worry or live in confusion. It almost sounds too easy, but you can have total freedom from the torment of confusion by refusing the temptation to figure everything out. As you bring God your questions and trust Him to bring the answers and provision you need, you’ll be able to enjoy a peaceful, happy life.
Prayer Starter: Father, I want to trust You more, but I need Your help. Please show me the answers I need to see, and give me the grace to trust You with the things I won’t understand until later. Thank You for always being there to reassure me and make a way for me where I need it. In Jesus’ name, amen.
