” ‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My thoughts than your thoughts.’ ” Isaiah 55:8-9
Have you ever considered how you might do things differently than God? Sometimes we cannot understand why He allows certain circumstances or fulfills His will in one particular way rather than another. But, we are not God. We do not possess His omniscience. We cannot fathom His ways because His thoughts are so far above our own.
We are like the infant who crawls curiously toward the light socket, unaware of the danger and easily upset when loving arms carry us away. To the child it seems like a good idea and she cannot comprehend why her parents would keep her from exploring such objects.
In the same way, God knows far more about our lives than we could ever perceive. We kick and scream like the child when things don’t go according to our own plans, but little did we know if God had given us what we wanted it would have led to heartache and pain.
Let us humbly submit to God’s superior ways and trust Him to do that which is in our best interest.
