Why is it that man is hassled by chaos?
It is because he prefers life to be served to him,
Like it were all available at a kiosk.
What is ‘chaos’ in a person’s mind?
It’s having as much control on life,
As a man who walks, though he is blind!
It’s like when you step into a fish market,
You can’t decipher who is saying what and to whom.
You’ve come by car when there is no place to park it!
So what is all this?
It is about us who love control,
Told we are mere stewards in a world that is His!
Since the fall of Adam in the garden,
Man received his own standard of righteousness.
This was Separate from God and without pardon!
Adam’s falls has changed our perspective of life,
Where what we cannot control, we despise,
As righteousness is now each one’s own, toward eternal strife.
So Chaos truly, is because man is unruly!
Man from His fall is crippled,
And so such a thing as trusting God,
Makes man think that his strife would be tripled.
Ideally, there is no such thing as chaos,
But man disbelieves God controls all,
As fall’s sting leaves man as dumbfounded as a sea horse.
This is the break from the rat race,
Every natural man runs,
As though it were keeping to life’s only pace!
To believe in one’s heart that God controls all,
Requires man to put away pride
And admit of oneself, folly from the fall.
Life is not for man to control,
And to even desire such a thing,
Shows man is since Adam, a depraved being on the roll.
A man’s desire to control every outcome,
Shows his broken communion with God,
Who is infinitely beyond all creation, even their sum!
If you asked: how much better,
Are the works of God as compared to men?
Then view the detail in a thread of a sweater!
Take a look at blood under a microscope,
And you see! The perfect design of an RBC!
While a thread appears as a chaotic kaleidoscope!
Man may believe only what he sees,
So Chaos is man’s incapacity to look beyond himself,
And see Almighty God working all things to the ‘T’.
Even if a person completed his doctorate with a brilliant thesis,
He still misses out on a rich relationship with God,
If this person knows not the Lord Jesus!
Like a person sitting pillion on a motorcycle,
and barely trust the rider,
Such is worried sick even when the engine runs idle,
So also it is with us men naturally,
Who trust not God,
But trust men, instead of God, fearfully!
So I close by inviting every person to remember,
That one need not substitute God’s solutions in the Bible,
For there is blessing in obeying His Law from January to December!
His Moral Law commands you first to love God above all,
Second, to love every neighbour as you do yourself,
And may God by His grace grant you a break from Adam’s fall!
