Day 207

ORDERLINESS

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. 

And there was evening, and there was morning—

the sixth day.

Genesis 1:31

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, remember that My children who have the gift of organization must help those who do not. But orderliness is more than mere organization. The orderliness of My character designed a plan from the beginning. I knew exactly what I was doing, and when I would do it. Nothing is haphazard in heaven. Are you struggling with perfectionism? Lighten up. Excellence is all I require. Feeling scattered? Let Me order your thoughts so that they stay focused on Me daily.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, You could have created everything in the world in one day or in one moment. You could have reversed creation and put man here first. But Your world is a world of precision, and everything was created according to your divine orderliness. Your wisdom is awesome.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Choose only those pursuits that strengthen your relationship with Him. Other things cry for your attention, but He wants to give you a heart devoted to Him alone.
