God’s Thoughts and Purposes #333

8  “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. 9  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. 10  “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,  11  So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:8-11)

The thoughts and purposes of God are infinitely greater than our feeble intellect and reasoning capabilities. Although God has blessed human beings with great intellectual capacity, human intelligence pales in comparison to the Almighty’s knowledge and wisdom. Therefore, we must humbly accept His word. Believe what God’s word teaches and commands, without arguing with God because “we would do things differently!” Who are we to fight against God?! The Lord’s word will accomplish His purposes, therefore, we trust God and follow His word. That singular thought and purpose forms the basis for who we are and what we do each day of our lives.
