Word-Filled Wednesday - Higher



"For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways My ways,"
   declares the Lord.
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

I am so glad our Lord is Sovereign, for in this crazy, mixed-up world He is the One constant I can rely on, the One I can always trust. When my faith wavers, He remains the same, yesterday, today, tomorrow. When my thoughts are filled with doubts, uncertainty or fear, His thoughts are consistently sure, faithful and true. He is in control in a world out of control. He is not surprised with the way our world is turning away from faith in Him; He is delighted when someone comes to faith in Him through his Son. He thinks I am special. He thinks you are special, because he made us. He made us in His image. As His children, we take after him. Sometimes I feel like a toddler, doing my best to imitate His walk and His talk, to be like Him because He is my Father. Knowing He loves me and that he is in control makes me feel safe and cared for, and even if I do not understand all of His ways, it feels wonderful knowing I do not need to. I only need to trust and have faith in Him. What a mighty God we serve!
