“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor 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, NASB
God always answers our prayers, maybe not the way in which we desire, but He always answers them. His ways are higher than our ways and so are His thoughts. God is not moved by our feelings nor does He operate according to our timetable. It serves us good to spend time in prayer so that we can see things from His view. Come up to where He is and you will see that He was with you all along and He is intricately at work in your life.
He is saying right now, today: “I am working behind the scenes in your life. I am working in hearts. Don’t be moved by what you see, by what you hear, or by what you feel. Only be moved by Me. Have faith in My character, in My love, and in My ability to see you through anything to victory. I am not limited by your ability or your inabilities. I have many ways to get you to My expected end for your life. Look to Me and I will comfort you. You did not choose Me, I chose you and appointed you to go forth and bear fruit for My glory. I will be glorified in your life.”
Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking directly to our hearts and for causing us to understand a little better your heart. Help us to come to you when we don’t know what to do or how to feel. Help us to let you be our God You are our only hope. You are faithful and you are sovereign. Help us trust and obey you even when we don’t fully understand your ways. Be glorified in our lives. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
