“Let all things be done decently and in order (1com. 14:40)
Order is the accurate arrangement of things. Develop a passion for it. You don’t park your car in the kitchen or sleep in the garage. Order is doing the right things at the right time, in the right place, for the right season. It is the secret of great productivity. God said “let all things be done decently and in order. You can’t be godly and be a slob.
You need order in your family. It is said that Susanna Wesley had seventeen children, yet every month she gave each of them one day of special attention and training}hat explains why Wesley took England for God and founded the Methodist Church.
You need order in your finances. Abraham gave God ten percent of his income (Gen. 14.20), Do you? Isaac, his son, did the same thing and reaped one hundred fold in one year (Gen. 26.12),’f you don’t acknowledged your source, it will dry up. Giving conquers selfishness, it also guarantees the future.
You need order in your relationships. When Satan wants to destroy you, he will often use a person. For Samson it used Delilah. Look out. Your company shapes your character and your character determines your destiny (1 Corinthians 15:33).
You need order in your daily routine. Get enough sleep. For when fatigue walks in, faith walks out. When you are tired you chang;, You talk and think differently, usually inaccurately. If God is telling you to rest, listen to him and obey. He worked and rested on the seventh day. Needless to mention that you need order in talking, dressing, eating, drinking etcetera. Ask God to help you put order back into your life today, for he is the Lord and source of order.
