Isaiah 55: 8 (NIV) “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”declares the Lord. V9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
There are people who say (and feel) there are times when we need to forgive God. This implies that God does wrong, which is never true. However, we may find it hard to place faith in God if we are convinced that the Lord has let us down. Have you ever felt the Lord let you down? God would never let us down and know’s what’s best for us always!
Let me give you some imperative insight: God is always trustworthy, but we don’t always know the mind of God, God’s reasons, or God’s ultimate intentions. We are susceptible to misinterpreting the Lord and His Divine actions in our lives. Please carefully read today’s devotion about the Lord’s thoughts compared to ours!
Sisters and brothers, our problem with trusting God doesn’t stem from the Lord’s untrustworthiness. It stems from our willful, misplaced determination to stand as judges over our own lives, determining right from wrong, good from bad, and better from best. Well today be reminded God knows what’s “Best” for you and for me, even when we don’t understand often what in the world is going on! Blessings and peace, love you all!
