“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.”
For those times in our life when we don’t understand why things happen the way they do, may we always remember that His ways and His thoughts are higher than ours.
When we focus on the disappointments, we forget that God is in control. Things may not work out how we had hoped, planned, or prayed for, but God is always working things for our good!
Imagine what Joseph must have thought when he was forsaken by his brothers, and cast into a pit. He then ended up being sold, working for Potiphar, and then cast into a prison. Those dark times weren’t what Joseph had planned, but God was working things for his good.
When God has another plan…
We can walk in faith, believing He is knows what is best for us.
We can trust Him despite our confusion.
We can rest in His sufficient grace.
Our circumstances may be dark and lonely… but God has another plan.
Like Joseph, God is using the difficulties we are facing today to one day bring us to a palace of our own, whether here or there.
Trust the Lord today, and remember that His ways and His thoughts are higher than ours.
