"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
Lies that pass for truth:
God helps those who help themselves.
Pull yourself up from your bootstraps.
This, too, shall pass.
Just rededicate your life!
What goes around comes around.
People don't change.
You can figure your life out.
Be aware or beware of applying the patterns of thinking of this world to the things of God's kingdom.
The kingdom of this world and the Kingdom of God are two totally different operating systems!
In His kingdom:
We are lifted up when we bow down.
We are strong when we are weak.
We are set free when we surrender.
He opposes the proud but grace to the humble.
The last shall be first.
The least will be the greatest.
God reveals Himself; we don't figure Him out.
God doesn't turn the things of this world upside down; He turns them right side up! Kingdom thinking requires a transfigured mind. A mind that is infused with the Holy Spirit, Who is light.
How have you tried to figure out God's will instead of seeking His revelation?
How have you used worldly thinking to understand God?
Which lies of the world have you believed?
Thank You that Your ways are higher and more beautiful than ours. How good it is that you supply everything we need for life. Including what we need for our body, soul, and spirit. Amen
