Just this week, I have come across the same scripture three separate times!
And then as I was talking to EB about this scripture, he said he had been thinking of that same scripture too.
Here is the scripture:
“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.”
Isaiah 55: 8-9
As I’ve pondered this scripture, this thought came to me…God is in control.
As a young girl, I had some hard trials to wade through.
I would fear the future and feel hopelessness through the rose colored glasses of my struggles.
When hard times come upon us, we question, “Why is this happening to me?”
But if we come to know that God is control, and that all things will work out for our good, we can trust God more, do our best more, and worry and fear less.
I know, that may sound trite and simplistic at best.
However…just as the heavens are far beyond our comprehension, so are God’s works far beyond our mortal minds and thoughts.
The Lord is a God of miracles and miracles just don’t make sense. But this one unpretentious idea, this one sincere thought does makes perfect comforting sense in an ever changing and unpredictable world–
GOD IS IN CONTROL.
