“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and My ways are not your 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 (NLV)
So many times we get in God’s way, thinking that what we are doing is the right thing to do. It seems like the logical thing to do. We are doing it in love, but if it is not God’s will, we are getting in God’s way. Therefore, we might cause a bigger problem or cause a delay in the problem being solved.
Has there ever been a time in your life when you honestly believed in your heart that you were doing the right thing, only to discover that you were wrong?
You may have dealt with a problem in your life or tried to solve a problem in the life of a loved one that God wanted to use to accomplish His purpose. He wanted to handle it His way, but you wanted to handle it your way. You might have tried to handle the problem in your own way and left God out altogether.
Sometimes we truly want to follow God’s will, but somehow we get off track and go in a different direction. Therefore, we become a hindrance to God’s purpose or plan. That is why it is so important for each of us to pray and seek God before we step out quickly and try to fix a problem or deal with a difficult situation. Let God fight your battles and walk out in victory!
Psalm 18:30 (NIV) says, “As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.”
Prayer: Lord, I ask You to help me to take my hands off of situations You are handling and get out of Your way so that You can work it out in Your way and in Your timing so that Your higher plan will be done. I know that Your ways are so much better than our ways. Thank You for Your ways and for being such an awesome God who loves us so very much! Thank You for wanting the best for Your children. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
