The world may seem to be in chaos, but nothing happens without God knowing or allowing.`

Scripture:
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies has sworn this oath: “It will all happen as I have planned. It will be as I have decided. – Isaiah 14:24

Observation:
Isaiah prophesied the coming of the Medes and Babylonians to destroy the Judean people; however, the Lord spoke through the prophet that the Babylonians would pay a hefty price for the treachery they’d bring against the Jews. The aftermath was described in great detail, but the truth of the matter was that God swore that all the destruction that came upon Babylon was according to his plan and as he decided.

Application:
People take note! All that is going on in the world is not of God. The evil that exists and occurs daily is not from Jehovah but either Lucifer and his minions or from humanity. However, the course of actions among nations and kingdoms is either ordained of God or allowed of God to bring about his ultimate plan of salvation and judgment. The salvation is for those that call on the name of the Lord and are saved by his grace through their faith in Him while the judgment is reserved for those that reject his gift of salvation/eternal life through Yeshua HaMaschiach. Don’t blame God for the ills of society and the hatred and violence we see or the death and carnage that pervades our media! No, these are the workings of mankind but within the confines of God’s permission. God has set out the course of humanity because he knows the end from the beginning. Also, we know that God’s word is sent forth on a mission and will not return void to him because it completes what it was assigned to do. Therefore, we can cast our cares upon him because he cares for us and rest assured that he is on his throne in control of the universe and is able to deliver his people from the day of judgment reserved for Lucifer, his minions, and his human children that rebelled against God. God has got this, so stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!

Prayer:
Father, thank you for loving me and teaching me the truth of your word through the gift of your Holy Spirit. God the Spirit, thank you for teaching me truth and guiding me into that truth. God the Son, Yeshua, thank you for being Truth and allowing the Father to give me the Spirit through you in order to know you and thereby know the Father. You have everything under control and order the steps of righteous people while bringing justice to those that violate your word. Forgive me for ever doubting your supremacy and the ability to cover me and shelter me from terrible times and situations. Some times you want to deliver me by going through the storm and not around it. Other times you miraculously snatch me away from the jaws of death. The world around me fears and worries over the least little uprising or disturbance in the world, but I know with assurance that if you are for me, then who can be against me? Man may take my physical life from me, but he can never take away the gift of eternal life I have in Yeshua HaMashiach! Blessed be your name forever! Your will be done in my life, not mine. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
