Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the Lord. — Job 2:1
Because we live in a natural world, these divine meetings appear unusual to us. Yet they shouldn't be. A supernatural God created us. In fact, as followers, we declare belief in a divine supernatural and spiritual being. And the unseen spiritual world is just as real as this physical experience. And because God is a one of order, he convenes a meeting. One that might run a little more effectively and efficiently than the ones we attend. Even with a fallen angel in attendance— Satan.
Two important reminders here. First, we are reminded that God is orderly. He gathered the "sons of God," or "angelic beings" together for some check-in or presentation meeting. In this, we assume that God commands the order of all things in the spiritual world, and he does this in an orderly fashion. Second, we are reminded that God is in control. Notice that even Satan is not "off the hook" for attending this routine angelic gathering. This assumes that God continues to command authority over fallen creation and Satan, who has been given dominion over the earth.
So as you walk into the chaos of your day, be reminded that there is a divine spiritual world. And while this world looks to be out-of-control, know this: God is one of order, and nothing in this life is out-of-his-control. Even Satan and his workers of lawlessness.

DO THIS: Remember, God is in control. It might do you well to say this a few times to yourself throughout this day or even write this down on a note on your desk — GOD IS IN CONTROL!
PRAY THIS: God, I shout from the depth of my heart — "You are in control!" when I feel I am not.
