Isaiah 55:8-9 – For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says 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.
As I thought about these two verses, I began to appreciate how they sum up part of my faith. We can’t fully understand who God is and what God wants of us. Obviously, the Bible gives us significantly important information, but we process the meaning of those scriptures through our very human brains.
Forgiving God, grant us wisdom so that we can understand your will for both us and this world with more clarity than we had yesterday. Amen.
