- Revelation 6:1-8:13
“Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals…When he opened the second seal…When he opened the third seal…When he opened the fourth seal…When he opened the fifth seal…When he opened the sixth seal…When the Lamb opened the seventh seal…” –Revelation 6:1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12; 8:1
Amid the seeming chaotic sounds of Revelation, the book points out an enduring truth: the ways of God have order. There is planning. There is process. There is procedure. A quote attributed to Albert Einstein seems apt here: “God does not play dice with the universe.” This earth has an expiration date. Just because God is the only One Who knows it right now doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Just because we may not understand the signs and the times, doesn’t mean they aren’t under God’s complete oversight.
If you can believe that the God of Revelation has this under control, can you believe the same for your life? Removing the truth from the larger picture, bring it down to your day-to-day. Do you believe God has an orderly, planned approach for your life? You may not yet understand, but there is order in His plan. Trust Him.
