A World In Chaos

Daily God Walk for Wednesday, January 6, 2009

 The Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel – because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.        – Genesis 11:8-9

 After the flood of Noah’s time, his sons began to repopulate the earth, but as is often the case, his sons didn’t carry on their father’s walk with God. As generations were born these people of the new world were centered in one place.

The people of the new generation had a great idea. They would build a tower that reached up to heaven. What was implied by their attempt was that if they could reach up to heaven then they could rule, not only their own destiny, but they would also rule the heavens.

When God saw what was in their heart he knew that if he didn’t intervene they indeed would continue their efforts until they were so full of themselves that they would never turn back to him.

The people were all of one language and God said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other. So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth and they stopped building the city” (verses 6-8).

Here is an interesting tidbit. In Genesis 11 God brought confusion that lead to scattering people around the earth by giving them differing languages. Acts 2 records God restoring order to those who would follow him by giving them a new language. The power released at Pente-cost through this new, heavenly language, literally changed the world.

God knew that without a Christ of redemption man would never be restored to peace and could never be reconciled to oneness with Him. He sent Jesus to be the Christ of Redemption.

 Principle: Man cannot be reconciled to God without Christ.

 Affirmation:  I have trusted Jesus, the Christ of reconciliation.

  Prayer:  Thank you Lord for allowing me to be reconciled to you and renewed by your Spirit. Complete the work of restoration. Amen.
