For fear of being religious, I will not quote scripture but I’m sure we all know that “Orderliness is next to Godliness” and this is key not only in dealing with God but it should guide our very existence… ORDER!
Let’s take a look at creation… He ordered His work and indeed it all came out beautifully well… and then He rested; not because He needed rest but so as to teach us that taking a moment to appreciate progress, re-strategizing if need be and moving ahead is necessary in this journey of life…
He gathered the waters to create dry land and the seas before He commanded the dry land to bring forth grass, herbs and vegetation of every kind, seed and seedless plants alike then He created the animals of the land and the fish of the sea… You think it through; without the dry land where would the animals have lived? And without the waters, would the fish have survived? This is just a peak into God’s orderliness… Every step with God is so calculated to precede the other in perfection.
Agreed man cannot be perfect but we can at least try… Take a look at yourself and then you will know that indeed you were created by order and as such you must obey order… Your eyes were not placed behind your head while your feet designed to be in front of you for how will you see ahead of you to move in that direction? When walking, your two feet do not move at the same time but one after the order in an “orderly” fashion… Your ears where not attached to your waist or your arms attached at your back… This goes to show you how much God values orderliness.
A life without order cannot grow because whether we acknowledge it or not, life is in stages… No one is given birth to a full grown man or woman, you start as a baby and grow into a man or woman and that simply explains life! One stage carefully precedes the other; there are absolutely no short cuts… That is why you must get an education first before you are awarded a degree, you must get pregnant first before you are delivered of a baby, you must crawl before you walk and walk
before you spread your wings to fly… That is life, it’s all about order and when you do not have order you indeed have no direction as such any and everything goes.
If you imagine yourself smart enough to skip a stage, be rest assured that at some very crucial point along the line of life you will surely be brought to book.
Do not be deceived, order is the only sure way with which to go up and be a hundred percent sure you will not come crashing down and shamefully so too anytime soon; for with order you build a solid foundation that stands the test of time and carries your building with all ease.
I do not know about you but I have ordered my life and God helping me, I love the results I see thus far… Join me if you may as there is enough room for us all at the topmost top…
BE YOU… JUST BE!
