'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.'
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."
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'
"The hope of the righteous
shall be gladness"
"Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling,
and to present you faultless before
the presence of His glory
"You have made known to me
the ways of life;
you shall make me full of joy
with your countenance."
"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)
