Conquering Confusion

| 1:08 MIN READ |

Lots of things are confusing. When you see them or experience them, you can’t make sense of them. Merriam-Webster defines confusion as, “being perplexed or disconcerted.” I’m not sure this is very helpful! We really don’t need a dictionary, we all know it when we feel it.

Problems can confuse us. Circumstances and situations can confuse us. People can confuse us. But there’s one thing we need to remember. God will never confuse you! Paul, the apostle, reminded us of this in 1 Corinthians 14:33 (NKJV) “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace…”

Confusion paralyzes us. It distracts and frustrates us. It brings disruption and disorder. It leaves us in a fog of indecision. Confusion turns friends into enemies. It turns co-laborers into competitors. Confusion in the heart, mind, or relationship always messes things up!

When confusion shows up, remember to see it for what it is. It’s something to be dismissed and ignored. God never brings confusion, He always brings peace! When confused, step back and wait on God to order your thoughts, bring peace to your heart and mind, and show you a clear way forward!
