“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.”
Losing leads to gaining.
Humility leads to exaltation.
Dying leads to living.
Although these statements may sound contradictory to how our minds think, they are truthful examples of how God’s thoughts and ways are so much higher than ours.
How can losing become gaining?
“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
How can humility lead to exaltation?
“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”
How can death bring forth life?
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
In those times when we do not understand what is happening or why circumstances occur in or lives, may we remember that His ways are higher and so much better than ours.
His ways bring salvation.
His ways bring eternal life.
His ways bring joy.
His ways bring peace.
