“I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work.” God’s Decree. 9 “For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think.” (Isaiah 55:8-9, The Message)

If there is one thing I have learned in this walk with God, it is that His ways are much higher than mine. His plans many times are different than mine, and, not so much that they are different as the path to get there is usually different than mine. Why? Because His ways are higher and better. Sometimes we complain about the road God puts us on, thinking the road we would have chosen is better, but what we don’t know is the obstacles He was helping us avoid. Yes, you’ll have obstacles on any road but His road is better.

The way He works surpasses the way I work and the way He thinks is beyond the way I think. Listen to the words of the song I have included this week. You could hold on to who you are, but He has called you higher and deeper. I don’t know about you, but I refuse to be stubborn and follow my ways. I am determined to be stubborn and follow His ways. Will you go wherever He leads you? His ways are higher.
