Topic: God of Order [Billy Graham Devotional 13 March 2020]
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust . . . —Psalm 18:2
The trouble with our modern thinking is that we have a conception that God is a haphazard God with no set rules of life and salvation. Ask the astronomer if God is a haphazard God. He will tell you that every star moves with precision in its celestial path. Ask the scientist if God is a haphazard God.
He will tell you that His formulas and equations are fixed, and that to ignore the laws of science would be a fool’s folly. If the laws in the material realm are so fixed and exact, is it reasonable that God could afford to be haphazard in the spiritual realm, where eternal destinies of souls are at stake? Just as God has equations and rules in the material realm, God has equations and rules in the spiritual.
Prayer for the day:
Thank You, God, for Your absolute divine order. Amid confusion, it brings me hope and perfect peace.
