If there’s a single word that describes 2020, it’s chaos. Reading from Tozer’s excellent book, “The Pursuit of God”, this morning:
“…The Word of God is quick and powerful. In the beginning He spoke to nothing, and it became something. Chaos heard it and became order, darkness heard it and became light. “And God said—and it was so.” These twin phrases, as cause and effect, occur throughout the Genesis story of the creation. The said accounts for the so. The so is the said put into the continuous present…”
We can continue struggling or we can simply confess we’ve made a real mess of things, can’t begin to unravel the knots, and ask Him to speak to the chaos and darkness again. I believe we’ll most of us eventually come to the end of ourselves and do just that.
How much worse do things have to get?
