“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” (Isa. 55:8,9).
Since God’s ways & thoughts are so far above ours, what right do we have to question God or His word? None whatsoever. We have no right to object to ANYTHING He might ask of us through His word. Everything He commands and asks is right and proper—whether we agree or understand why is beside the point! We have as much right to object to the instruction and correction of our heavenly Father as a toddler does to object to the instruction and correction of his earthly father! He’s the potter, we’re the clay; He’s the shepherd, we’re the sheep; He’s the master, we’re the servants! Friends, we must exercise faith, submission, & humility before God. Why? Because His thoughts & ways are above ours in every way (cf. Job 42:1-6). May we reflect on this great truth regularly.
