Good morning my Dear family and friends, God is good, all the time. We give glory to the Lord He reigns… He reigns forever.
We reflect today on Isaiah 55:6-9.
Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith 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.
Friends, the God we serve is not just like us. We think that some things are just impossible but with God all things are possible. With God , hopeless situations can change, failure can be turned to success stories. What human beings may reject, God accepts; what a Mighty God we serve.
The Lord declared in verse 8 ; ” My thoughts are not like yours, and my ways are different from yours.” The hymn writer , William Cowpar writes that “God moves in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform: He plants His footsteps in the sea, and rides upon the storm.”
Throughout the Bible, “God chooses the foolish things of this world to shame the wise; God chooses the weak things to shame the strong.” 1 Corinthians 1:27. Why should David be chosen as King of Israel instead of Eliab? why should Joseph become a Governor instead of any of his siblings? How come David fought Goliath, (a giant)with stones and kill him? What happened that Haman’s plot to destroy the Jews, turned against himself? Reflects on these and other Biblical accounts.
My Dear, we will never understand the ways of God. Your logic, knowledge, background etc cannot take you to where God can take you. God’s ways are always higher than ours. Keep trusting and depending on God at all times. Human beings may disappoint but God never disappoints. PHB 562. Remain blessed in all your ways. Amen!
