God Has Ways



 'For my thoughts as not your thoughts,

nor are your ways My ways,'

declares 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








A mother's  broken voice

was heard from the back of the large auditorium.

"My son isn't a Christian.

He doesn't read the Bible

nor have opportunity to hear the Bible preached.

How can I believe God is going to work in his life?"


The minister paused for a few seconds.

Then he leaned into the microphone

and in a kind, humble voice said,

"Madam, God has ways." 



Dear Christian,

when you are confronted

with what you think is an impossible situation,

remember that sustaining truth,

God does have ways.


If you are praying about someone you love

who doesn't know the Lord Jesus,

or a problem of your own that appears

to have no solution,

take comfort in the fact that God does have ways.


His ways are perfect.

They are blameless.

His thoughts are not your thoughts

and His ways are not your ways.

Pray to the Lord as Jeremiah did.

'Ah Lord God!

Behold, You have made the heavens

and the earth by Your great power

and by Your outstretched arm!

Nothing is too difficult for You'

(Jeremiah 32:17).



"The hope of the righteous

shall be gladness"

(Proverbs 10:28)


"Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling,

and to present you faultless before 

the presence of His glory


exceeding joy."

(Jude 24)


"You have made known to me

the ways of life;

you shall make me full of joy

with your countenance."

(Acts 2:28) 


  "Let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice:

let them ever shout for joy,

because thou defendest them;

let them also that love thy name

be joyful in thee."

( Psalm 5:11)
