We are called to trust God’s ways more than our own ways

Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.”

This verse is a reminder to all of us that our thoughts and ways are not always the thoughts and ways of the Lord.

I love these verses.
I love to remember that God’s thoughts, plans, ways, methods, and strategies are infinitely higher and greater than my own. They are better in every way.

Instead of believing what we see, we are called to trust what we can’t see or sense.

We are called to trust God’s ways more than our own ways.
Sometimes, however, life does not feel as if God is in control.

We may question where God is when………..…
• Our loved ones face health concerns
• Our plans crumble around us
• We struggle financially
………. We may ask, “Where is God in all of this?” !!!!!!!!!!!

But what Isaiah reminds us. is that …
……… God’s ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts. His plan is impeccable.

We may not see it from our limited vantage point, but God sees the whole story*

• He knows how it all started and what it was working towards
• He knows the great conflicts that will arise
• He knows how He and His Son save the day from all the evil that we brought on the world
• He knows how He works all the evil committed in the world together for good
• He knows it all

What are we presently passing through?
Heart break, delays or inexplicable circumstances?

Friends, ……
there is a message behind that heartache.
Like a loving father, God is protecting us from an unseen havoc.

It might seem painful right now but, if we choose to obey God and let Him have His way, we will be happier at the end.
