“For My thoughts are 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 ~
This isn’t deeply profound. Just something I’ve been thinking about lately:
When something comes into my mind and heart that really surprises me—especially when total peace surrounds it—I know it is of the Lord. It is not me. It is Him. Because in my humanness, I would never come up with it on my own.
He gives me courage when I normally would be scared. He gives me peace when I otherwise would feel unsettled. When I am open—even a tiny bit—to His plans, His will, He pours His grace upon me. Giving me what I need to do the seemingly impossible.
This never ceases to amaze me, and I guess that’s because our Lord truly is, well, amazing. He is never going to stop surprising and amazing us, leaving us in complete awe. All because He just loves us so.
