“I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work.” God’s Decree. “For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think. Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth, Doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry, So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.” Isaiah 55:8-9 Msg
I must remind myself of this daily, sometimes every hour! Silly me! Just when I think I’ve got it all together, just when I think I’m smart and have it all figured out, I think of God and realize I don’t know a speck of what He does. I can’t make it rain. I can’t make it snow (not that I ever would! LOL) but He can. He says here that the way he works and the way I work are vastly different.
Whenever I’m facing a difficult season, a broken heart, an unfulfilled promise, I read these verses again and know that He will complete the assignment, every Word spoken will come to pass. I may forget, He never does. I may break a promise, He never does. I may fail, He never will.
Father, help me to keep my perspective using Your vantage point, not my own. You are God and when all the chaos comes into order, when all the storms cease, when the waves calm down again, You will still be standing. You never give up on me and I will never give up on you. You’re big enough to rule all the universe but small enough to fill my heart. I love you so much and I trust in You always. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
