“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “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 (NIV)
It is good to be reminded of truths which we have known before. It is good to come back to words in the Bible which we have read before and may be very familiar to us. It is good to be reminded that God’s way of looking at things is far superior to our way. God’s way of solving our problems is far superior to anything we could come up with or imagine on our own. So, when we are reminded of a truth like the one in our verse today, let us be sure that we trust His divine wisdom to work things out for us. Nothing can be better than to know that as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are God’s ways higher than our ways and His thoughts than our thoughts.
