September 29, Tuesday Devotion

1 Corinthians 14:26-33

26 What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church. 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret. 28 If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and God.

29 Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. 30 And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop. 31 For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged. 32 The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets. 33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.

As in all the congregations of the saints,

Quick Notes

There is a saying that goes, "There is a place for everything and everything for a place." When we live disordered lives, it leads to brokenness all around. God created out of order and it is through order that the majesty creation comes in full view. I do not mean by order a very tight structure that squeezes the life out of something, but order that allows for a magnificent play that brings out the best because of everyone being on the same page.

Quick Questions

Is your life one of order or chaos?

Quick Prayer

Lord, thank you for your order. Let it help me be a great witness for you. Amen.
