get so many questions as to “then why am I so confused?”, or “Now I’m
confused”…….I used to be that person who questioned everything….I used
to ask “But Why God”….and then tried desperately to figure out the “why”
behind someone’s actions….I almost drove myself mad…..the thing is that
TD Jakes said one time that got my attention that I now tell myself is
this: “What other people think or say about me is none of my
business”…..it has helped me with stopping the habit of reasoning
everything in my life…
I found this small article from Joyce Meyer that tells it a wee bit different yet the same….
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
—1 Corinthians 14:33 KJV
There is nothing wrong with pondering some things in our hearts, as
Mary did when the angel of the Lord told her she would give birth to the
promised Messiah (see Luke 2:19). Many times it is while we are
pondering or meditating on something that God gives us revelation or
understanding. It is one thing to ponder, but another thing to worry.
When we are pondering, in a sense we are praying, “Lord, I don’t know
what this means. I don’t really understand it. I need some direction.”
However, when we are worrying, we are trying to figure things out on our
own, and we often end up confused about what to do. As soon as you
become confused, you have stopped pondering and started worrying and
reasoning. Seek after peace, not confusion, because God is not the
author of confusion.
Power Thought: It is God’s will for me to have peace and not confusion.
