8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
His desire is to give us a future that is one of hope (which according to Romans 5:5 does not disappoint), peace, and prosperity as He takes pleasure in prospering those who serve Him (Proverbs 35:27).
Faith, trust, and submission! Uh oh… there’s that word: submission! That’s one of those 4 letters words according to the world as we are taught to submit to no one. As believers we should know better. There is such freedom in submitting to will of our Father as we are not bound by religion or the law of the Old Testament having been saved by Grace- that free gift which is God’s divine power and unmerited kindness and favor (But that’s a topic for another post)!
We need to submit our will to our Father and BE STILL! Trust that He has everything in control even when it may not appear that way to our natural eyes. We live a life of faith and we know that we are not bound by supernatural laws because we serve a supernatural God. Sometimes it is not easy waiting on Him, but He’s got you! Trust Him! Trust Him! Trust Him! Put that flesh under and get to the point where you are just tired of submitting to your own will because you are seeing the same results. Remember the Word says to taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8). When you taste something, you don’t eat the entire thing, you take a bite. So, just taste….. (Went off tangent a bit there, but that was for someone..)
Bottom line, be still. God is good and he desires to give you your hearts desire. Just be still and know that He is God! Amen
