You Are Not God

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.”

Isaiah 55:8

Ponder This

God says, “My thoughts and your thoughts are different. My ways and your ways are different.” We need to understand that God works on a different thought level than we do.

I heard of a man criticizing the way the Lord made things. He said, “It doesn’t make sense to me. A great big oak tree only has little acorns on it, but a weak watermelon vine has to bear those heavy watermelons. It would make sense for the watermelons to be on the oak tree, and the acorns on the vine.”

About that time an acorn hit him on the head, and he said, “I’m glad it wasn’t a watermelon.”

Practice This

Have you ever heard someone say, “Well, if I were God, I would…”? Maybe you’ve said it yourself. But how foolish—you don’t know what God knows! When you face something you can’t understand, ask God to help you understand. In the meantime, trust Him for the answer.
