Confusion and Chaos are not My God

Heavenly Father, I praise You for being a God of peace not one of confusion. [1 Corinthians 14:33] I praise You for creating us with a purpose and that Your will leads us to walk a very strait and narrow path so that we can know beyond a shadow of doubt that You love us, cherish us, and desires the best for us, even if we do not see it until we are with You in eternity. I praise You for being honest with us that we would see troubles and that we would be persecuted for serving You.  

Holy Spirit help me to be of a clear mind so that when this world goes into a tailspin I am standing on firm ground. Let my focus be on fulfilling Your inspired words like: Here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what He wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you and develops well-formed maturity in you. [Romans 12:1&2, The Message] 

Let this living temple of Yours allow Your Spirit to reside in me 24/7 without trying to hide some sin somewhere in my heart. Help me to readily confess and seek forgiveness when I need to so that I let nothing interfere with Your presence in my life and so that my sole focus is on whatever You say, expect, or motivate me to do.  

I thank my God always concerning the grace of God which was given to me by Christ Jesus, that I am enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in me, so that I come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm me to the end, that I may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom I am called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. [1Corinthians 1:4-9]
