There are going to be times when God does something in your life and you question His motives. There will be times when you make plans to do something and God instructs you to ditch your plans and follow Him. There will be times when you don’t understand why God is allowing certain things to happen in your life. I want to encourage you to trust and be obedient to the Lord because the ways of God are not our ways. God’s thoughts and ways are not like ours!
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither 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.” Isaiah 55:8-9
It’s so easy to get caught up in what we want and how we want it done, but we must remember that we are here on earth to do God’s will; not ours. Don’t stress yourself out on trying to understand the ways of God because His ways are past finding out; for the scripture declares it is impossible for us to understand His decisions and His ways! Romans 11:33.
The ways of our God are mysterious, perfect, unfathomable, inscrutable and unexplainable. They are higher than our ways. If you’re going to have a relationship with God, you must realize that God’s ways are not man’s ways. You must learn to trust His ways because He’s omniscient (all knowing) and knows what’s best for you.
Although doing things God’s way is hard at times, rest knowing when God ordains something to be so in your life, God will give you the tools and resources needed to do His instruct and provide the strength and provisions needed to guide you through. Regardless of what happens as a result of your obedience, know that God’s way is still the best way and living God’s way is much more rewarding than living life the way we want or believe is right.
