God’s Mysterious Ways

“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

Sometimes, when we read the Bible, a verse or passage continues to reappear. I never think that is a coincidence. Sometimes, other things in our lives speak to us about this very thing, and then we see a connected message and God uses people, songs, quotes, a literal sign, whatever it may be, to reach us and have us understand what message He is trying to bring across in our lives.

Take time to search the scriptures. Take time to see God speaking to you through many things and in many ways. God cares enough that He reaches out to us and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes, what we need, comes from the most unexpected source.

I believe that things happen (God permits them) for a reason. Often times, we don’t understand the reason behind something until much later, or never.
At times, we want to understand everything God is doing, but He goes revealing as much as we can handle as we continue to walk with Him. How do we understand God’s ways?
He guides us, but God also has mysterious ways.

Rowan Atkinson:
“But what, in the end, all this comes down to, is how we deal in life with the problems that we have to face. Sometimes, it’s a question of just taking action, of making decisions, of involving others, of finding your resolve, and seeing it through. But at other times, it’s about something much less tangible. Sometimes all it takes is a little grace. A little of God’s grace, and all our problems seem to fade away. Now, should we demand an explanation from our Lord? Question His methods? Or should we merely enjoy the benefits? Well, I don’t think the Good Lord wants us to question too much. Isaiah, chapter 55, verse 8: ‘My ways are not your ways.’ And I think that what He basically means by that is: ‘I’m mysterious, folks. Live with it.'”
