My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth; so, my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
Often we have expectations of what should happen next. When things don’t go as planned, we have difficulty dealing with disappointment. We forget how it feels to TRUST, PRAY and be PATIENT.
Distractions rob content when we focus on what we WANT and forget God provides what we NEED. In the timing of His will, He blesses us with HOPE and helps us find PEACE in His presence.
Jesus leads us to the Father. When we forget who’s in charge of ALL things, He guides us back where we belong. He renews our thoughts and humbles our hearts with compassion. He takes our burdens so we will step in faith and follow in the footsteps of His love.
Life will not always take us where we want to go. But God will bless us with the STRENGTH of His greatness. He will help us endure and reveal the power of His plan. He is God! He is HERE and HE LOVES US! He will provide HOPE when it’s needed, PEACE in His presence and reassurance to remember who is handling EVERY single thing.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Dear God, thank you for what is revealed in the timing of Your will. Oh, how we need to feel the PEACE of Your presence! Humble our hearts to remember who is working for the good. Help us focus on the love of Your faithfulness, so we will bravely surrender doubt and find STRENGTH to endure challenging moments. We will give YOU our Praise in EVERY situation and never forget how lucky we are to be loved by You. Thank you, Lord! Amen
