“Have you commanded the morning since your days began,
And caused the dawn to know its place?”
Every book has an assigned place at the library. Each novel, biography, or science fiction has its own call number that tells the librarian where the book should be placed. Each shelf holds specific books in a specific order. Without organization, a library would be total chaos—piles of books strewn across shelves. Without a system, books would become almost unusable for no one could find what they needed. Organization makes all that information easy to find and available.
Imagine the universe without organization—the earth orbiting at whatever speed in whatever orbit, leaving some of us to freeze and others to scorch. Or what if the seasons came and went in whatever order they wanted, whenever they wanted? What if you never knew whether spring, summer, or fall would follow winter—or if winter would end at all? Fortunately, God has a system of organization. He has precisely designated the location of each star and calculated the rotation of each planet. In the midst of this system, He has “assigned a place for the dawn.”
If God can keep the universe in order, surely He can help you handle your day. Like an extremely well-organized library, nothing goes amiss with Him in charge. Sip your coffee, watch the sun rise, and let Him take care of the order of your life.
