I once invited a young man to preach as a guest in one of our meetings. I know he functions in the prophetic. But I expected him to, at least, begin with some preaching. But there he was pacing up and down on the pulpit looking for a prophetic word, to no avail. He had violated the order of scriptures.

Friend, if you would be stable and lasting in destiny, you must be orderly (1 Corinthians 14:40). God does not support disorder neither does He operate in an atmosphere of disorder. Therefore, you cannot claim that you are following God if you are disorderly.

Learn to bring your life and operation into the right order. There is the order of scriptures; never violate what God has said in His word no matter how ‘led’ or passionate you seem to be. You cannot claim that God led you to divorce your spouse and marry another. It is simply against the order of scriptures (1 Corinthians 14:33).

Align with leadership order. God does not lead His flock from behind but from the front. Never claim to ‘receive’ any direction that violates the leadership structure that God has placed you under; that would be disorderly (Matthew 8:9). Never violate the order of procedures and processes. God is a God of procedures and processes. Don’t put the cart before the horse.

Don’t start a ministry when you have not been properly released from the ministry circle that God has sovereignly and wisely placed you (Acts 13:1-2). It is disorderly and God does not bless disorder (Psalms 133:1-3). A lot of pain can be avoided if people can just live in order. Pain announces disorder. Remove the disorder and the pain is gone.

Divine purpose must be balanced with alignment with the right kingdom order. Despite that David already had a revelation of his kingship he would not lift his hands against the Lord’s anointed (1 Samuel 24:4-7). You don’t have to be in a hurry to be all that God wants you to be (2 Thessalonians 3:6). You get God on your side when you are orderly.
