Day 1: The God of Order

For God is not a God of disorder, but of peace.” 1 Corinthians 14:33 (NIV)

How well do you know God? Who do you say that He is?

From Sunday School lessons to powerful sermons at church, you’ve probably heard descriptions of who God is—God the Creator, the Great I Am, the Lord Who Provides, and the Lord Who Sees. We’re also told in Scripture that His character is loving, merciful, and kind, among other things.

But have you ever stopped to consider God as a God of Order?

To be honest, I hadn’t. Until I reread Genesis 1:2, “Now the earth was formless and void …” According to the original text, the terms formless and void were meant to convey the idea of confusion and disorder. God took that chaos and set the universe in order. From there, everything He did in Scripture (and still does today) is done in an organized manner. That’s His character. His nature. That’s who He is.

And He wants us, His children, to be a reflection of that order too.

As God’s image-bearers (Genesis 1:27), we were created to resemble, or be a representative of, Him on the earth. The world should be able to see the characteristics of God through us and our everyday actions. This includes the way we manage and organize our homes, our time, and other aspects of our lives.

Tall orders, right? Take heart. As we learn to be patient and wise, we can grow in our ability to be organized as well.

And though we will never be able to perfectly emulate God’s nature in full, understanding who He is and what He longs for us to be can help us work toward becoming better reflections of His character to a world that desperately needs to see Him.

God, the God of Order. Just as He establishes order in the heights of heaven (Job 25:2), let’s do our part to reflect His nature and that majesty here on earth.

Prayer

Father God, I praise You for who You are,
a God of Order.
You create order in the heavens above and the earth below.

Help me to reflect Your organized nature,
so that others might see and
know You.

  1. How exciting to see a book with Christian roots on uncluttering. Years ago, Richard Foster wrote a powerful book called Freedom of Simplicity. I loved it. This devotional books sounds wonderful.

  2. Anne

    A treasure of a book which is desperately needed at this time. What a lifesaver for me. Thanks.

  3. Roxanne C.

    Wow—this sounds just like the kind of book I’ve been thinking that I need! Thank you so much for sharing it. I’m adding it to my “must read” list.

  4. Uncluttering is an ongoing struggle. I love the idea of incorporating scriptures into the process. I would share this book with others as well. Cluttering my bookshelf would be counter-productive, right?

  5. Julie Pripps

    I always enjoy decluttering books which give me inspiration to tidy up another space.

  6. I want to read Uncluttered because I love being organized! Also, I recently ‘met’ Liana via zoom and she’s a delight. I’d love to read her book.

  7. Sue Parrish

    My cousin describes our family as packers and stackers. She is not wrong. I need help with removing the clutter of my house and my mind. This book sounds like just what I need.

  8. MICHAEL A LAW

    I would like to read this because it looks like a great read. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  9. Sunshine

    I desperately need to declutter and simplify. So many other areas of my life go more smoothly when I do! This book looks helpful and inspiring!

  10. Jessica

    This sounds so encouraging for someone who longs for decluttering and is in the process of it currently!

  11. Terrill Rosado

    Who doesn’t need help with clutter sometimes – of life and the mind? I get easily overwhelmed when I feel clutter is getting a stronghold. This sounds like an encouraging alternative to the overabundance of decluttering resources in the secular market.

  12. Leslie Price

    I am a Container Store junkie and a huge fan of all kinds of organization, physical and emotional. This sounds right up my alley.

    • We love The Container Store too! Very few people realize anything deeper than the physical organizing, so kudos to you for recognizing the emotional component as well.

  13. Jenn R

    I would love to read a book that could allow me the transformative insight and actionable steps towards a more serene existence as it promises.
