(Isaiah 55:8-9 11-12)
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. So is my word that goes out from my mouth; it will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace.”
God is unique in all His ways, and His plan for our lives is so much better than what we can ever hope for. He shines a brighter light that reveals all good things and exposes a fresh new insight into things we never thought of.
What we perceive to be good, He enhances by showing us new ways and making His presence known to us. He gives me the privilege to share my heart here every day and so much more. Plus, by doing so, He reminds me daily that He is alive in all of us each day and that He can be present and a part of our lives daily to anyone who wants Him to be.
God gives us the courage to face our tomorrows with confidence, knowing that in His perfect time, if He chooses, He will divulge His promise and what was meant for us. To God be the glory that His ways are different than ours and that He knows best for everyone and their circumstances.
Is it not better to rely on a sure thing than to go through life guessing and putting pieces together that may not fit just because you want them to? Only God, He alone, will give you the right pieces that fit according to His plan-one by one.
God will not overwhelm you with the whole picture ahead of you, so look to see His grace unfold slowly so that you enjoy every moment and accomplishment in store.
When you reach the promise, you will appreciate what God has done for you. Thank Him for the abundance of love He has shown while walking you through it all.
