There is a reason the enemy loves to stir up confusion and chaos on the earth. He is terrified of what will happen when the sons and daughters of the Kingdom begin to operate in their full capacity to bring order and alignment to creation.
From the very beginning, God’s design was for us to join Him in creating, enriching, multiplying, and replenishing the earth. From the simple task he gave to Adam of naming all the animals to His charge to the first couple to “be fruitful and multiply”, His intent has always been for us to take ownership and rule over the earth. It is His joy and our purpose (Genesis 1:26-28).
We, as believers, are on a journey back to the Garden. This is what we were created for – to walk in close relationship with the Father and enjoy the creative process of stewarding all that He has made. This is why the enemy is bringing so much chaos and disorder – to discourage and distract us from our calling and our destiny.
The Lord would remind us that He has given US the role and the authority to call creation into order!
For the LORD is God, and He created the heavens and earth and put everything in place. He made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos. (Isaiah 45:18, NLT)
As we face chaotic situations, both personally and as a nation, our charge is to SPEAK ORDER and ALIGNMENT under the Lordship of Christ. Even as God spoke into the void of darkness and brought order, so we are called to speak His Word over the earth to bring light and alignment.
By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth…For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. (Psalm 33:6, 9, NIV)
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore… (Matthew 28:18-19)
When God’s Word is spoken, everything in creation must bow to its original design and purpose. Anything that is out of order must now come into HIS order. This applies to our physical bodies, relationships, and authority structures. EVERY part of creation needs to come into order, and WE have the capacity to release this through speaking God’s blessings and purposes on the earth! The key to this understanding comes from placing ourselves under His authority, in complete surrender, and walking in absolute obedience. As we posture our hearts in total surrender to His Lordship, all of heaven will back up His words through our lips.
Do not fear powers that rise against the Kingdom of God. Rather, speak God’s order and original design into the situations and declare His Lordship, His rule, and His reign. He is the only One who can bring that order, but He has created us to call it into being. Speak light into the darkness, order into the chaos, and creative purpose into that which is dead and lifeless.
Once things come into order, His creative power will be unleashed in unprecedented ways. We have only begun to know Him as CREATOR and One who brings something out of nothing, substance out of emptiness, and beauty out of darkness. We have the opportunity, even now, to release this creative aspect of His character – “…the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were. (Romans 4:17, NIV)
If things are out of order in your life, declare divine alignment by placing yourself under His authority and creative design. Even the psalmist spoke alignment to his soul: “Bless the Lord, O my soul!” (Psalm 103:1) Don’t allow the confusion to disrupt God’s purposes for you. Take a stand for God’s created order and call things back in line.
Remember who you are and embrace your inheritance as a son and daughter of His creation.
