“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says 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.
“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,
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 NKJV
No matter how much we think we know, we will never know all there is to know. And when it comes to God and understanding His ways, we cannot attempt to understand Him with our carnal mind, but we must constantly be attuned to Him through Holy Spirit.
When He says, our thoughts are not His–He’s reminding us we cannot begin to think like Him or anticipate what He might do next. He knows our thoughts before we even think them, and nothing we do–ever surprises Him. At the same time, we cannot relegate His ways to our limited understanding of anything--we must strive to rise above what we know and hear Him and stop trying to bring Him down to our level of thinking.
What heaven or universe have we created? What sun did we make to shine? Before we were–He was and will be, forever and if He needs to start humanity over again, He can, but can we?
Though there are some who mockingly discuss what God says, they do not understand that whatever He has said, is what will be. Those things we desire to happen and those we don’t–will all come to pass–according to His Word.
Our job while we yet remain is to be a witness to others of His goodness and to encourage all we meet to receive the gift of salvation–through His death, burial and resurrection. For there is no other name by which mankind can be saved–other than the name of Jesus.
His birth foretold–done.
His death described and done.
His resurrection foretold and done.
And now we wait for His return–when the dead in Christ shall rise and the rest of the Believers will be caught up and taken to reign with Him.
His Word will be accomplished in the lives of all whether we believe it or not. For His Word and His Ways are not contingent upon our belief, but because He has already said what would be done–it will be–His Word will be accomplished and nothing by any means shall hinder His plans for us.
