Our "True North"
"For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints." (NKJV)
-- 1 Corinthians 14:33
"If you're lost and confused, unable to make heads or tails of the situation, trying to find your way out of a dark tunnel with no idea where the exit is . . . that's not God's fault.
If things are spinning out of control, falling apart and there's no order in the court . . . don't blame God.
God is not about confusion and disorder.
He makes sense.
He's clear as day. He is light.
He is the way.
You can't get lost with God.
Confusion is not from God.
Nor is chaos.
Those things happen when a person looks somewhere besides God, making detours that made sense at the time but eventually led nowhere.
If things are chaotic in your world, it's because you're trying to do things by your own effort.
You trust only yourself to get it done.
You may be working with a group of people but soon learn that they all have their own compasses, pointing in different directions.
Make God your true north.
USE HIM as a flashlight in darkness.
Follow His straight path to righteousness.
Everything makes sense to God.
He's at peace and wants you to join Him."
