Creation—His words bring order to chaos. Ours should too!

Genesis 1:1-3

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.2 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.3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.


God speaks it, the stuff does what He said. This is Good! That’s what He wanted all along and is the point of your recreation in Christ—to do good. Divided—order and distribution. Nothing was created until day 3, before was ordering chaos.

Genesis 1:6-7

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Genesis 1:17-18--And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 11:6-8

And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.


Confound—mix, confuse.

1 Corinthians 14:7-9

And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air—for no point, benefit, or edification.

1 Corinthians 14:30-33

If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.


Subject to—prophets don’t lose control, still have judgment and are sober. Confusion—instability, disorder. Peace—quietness, rest.
