The theme for today’s daily devotional by David Jeremiah is ”God of Order”
Scripture: For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.-Colossians 1:16
In the world of physics, entropy is a measure of disorder or randomness. For example, if we fail to apply purposeful energy in our life or to our property, disorder and decay—entropy—increases. The opposite of entropy is purpose and design, sustained by the application of energy and power.
When God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1), He did so ex nihilo—“out of nothing.” From chaos and darkness (Genesis 1:2), He brought forth order by His own design—the order we observe at all levels of creation. Paul summarizes God’s approach to everything by saying, “God is not the author of confusion but of peace” (1 Corinthians 14:33). God’s purpose is also reflected in His creation of angelic beings: angels, archangels, seraphim, cherubim, angels of the Lord, mighty ones, hosts of heaven, and more.
Take comfort today that you serve a God of order and purpose and that includes the hierarchy of His angelic servants.
I meditate on the blessed obedience and order of angels, without which no peace could be in heaven, and oh that it might be so on earth!
