In a world filled with chaos, from hurricanes to mass murders, where should you turn? The Bible, God’s Word, gives us the answer in Psalm 46:10 (KJV), “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” God’s Word says to “Be still.” God wants us to be still and quiet in these times. What can give us a sense of calmness in these times? It is God’s presence that can do this. Many may think that God is in control in the “good times”, but when the “bad times” come God is no longer in control. No! God is in control even in the chaos and most difficult of times.
Our world is in trouble today because we have chosen to turn away and disobey God. God’s blessing comes when his commandments are obeyed, and chaos and judgment come when God’s commandments are disobeyed. This can be seen time-and-time again in the Bible.
God never said we would be immune from trouble, but He did say in the middle of the chaos, God would be with His people. If God could deliver the children of Israel by dividing the waters of the Red Sea, there is no event in our life that He will not be able to deliver us from. What should you do in a chaotic world? Be still and trust God who controls all these events!
