For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 ESV
Have you ever been around a great thinker? Have you ever been around someone who just blows you away with the way they see certain aspects of life? I have!
But even the greatest thinker in the world can’t out think God! The greatest minds together can’t come close to how God has put this world together and even more so, how He has set forth the plan to save the world from the beginning of time.
Which means, if you are a Believer, things will happen that you won’t fully understand, but God is at work and He has a plan!
You might not be able to see it or even come close to understand it. But He knows what He is doing.
When you realize how He has been setting up human history for us, it is mind blowing!
But remember, God plays the long game! He doesn’t worry about our timelines. He doesn’t move in time. So He doesn’t operate according to our desires, but His. This is why things don’t always happen when we are in the midst of the chaos.
He uses the chaos and everything else to teach us, mold us, make us who He wants us to be. It is within His plan!
You might not understand it, but you should trust Him. If Jesus is your Lord and Savior, know that He has you secure in the palm of His hand.
Last thought, there are so many things that happen in our lives that tend to cause pain, but with a little bit of time, we don’t even remember them or they don’t even come up. But when we were right in the middle of it, it was uncomfortable.
So knowing this, one question we should ask ourselves about the trials in our lives is, “what do You want me to learn or how do I need to change because of this Lord?”
He just might show you His ways!
Father, thank You that You are in control. Help me to get out of the way and let You lead.
