JACKED UP LIFE /DISORDER AND MAYHEM
Numbers 10:28”This was the order of march of the sons of Israel by their armies as they set out.”


I was awestruck as I read the book of Numbers where God has arranged everything in order, when the 6 Lakh people had to move from one place to another, because they had to move in short notice,  God had meticulously and accurately given them the order in which they had to move, that is what we read in chapter ten.  1 Corinthians 14:33” For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.” JACKED UP LIFE IS A LIFE OF DISARRAY!


What about order in your life? We work when we have to sleep and sleep when we have to work. Disorderly life! Professional, young, brilliant women, are busy checking status and facebook midnight, therefore, they are unable to wake up early. Home and kids are in disorder!  What you sow is what you reap! Beware! God will never excuse a disorderly life!


Friends, after receiving the Gospel and accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior, we have to whittle our lives and live a disciplined life; we have no excuse to live a disorderly life! Anybody listening? Our spending has to be in order, we just cannot buy as per our whims and fancies, we need to dexterously calculate and crucify fleshy desires of swift spending, hasty decisions and reckless purchases on EMI.  Family suffers when the man of the family is in disorder, I have watched something in my experience, a disorderly person has everything messed up in his life: MIND, THOUGHS, HABITS, CHARACTER, DEMEANOR, RELATIONSHIPS, HOLINESS, FINANCIAL PRUDENCE, BUDGET DISCIPLINE etc. This person has everything jacked up in his life. LIFE OF DISARRAY!


Do people want to listen to you talk about order, discipline and control? No way! There is an orchestrated endeavor to damn everybody who desires to inject some ethics, discipline and order into the life of people.


Listen to me carefully today, Christianity is not all about fun and run; it is about pruning, crucifying and growing in the Lord. One has to read the Bible, understand His Word, get into fellowship with people who would expound the Scriptures to you and also teach you how to pray. A beautiful, well-paid attractive Christian woman attended my afternoon prayer cells, back while I was working and she said: ’Bala, I feel empty while I pray in the morning, I feel like I am talking to air- I can’t feel God.’ Are you there? Such was the feeling of an intellectual woman. I told her,’ you cannot always feel God – though you may at times – but prayer is faith in God and obedience to have fellowship with Him.’ After many, many years, she continues to pray, read the Bible and fast once  a week as I had taught her. When you do this, you will be able to handle the pressures of life and overcome them too.
Disorder in our prayer life is the reason for disorder and mayhem in our real life!
