God’s Decree

“I don’t think the way you think. 
The way you work isn’t the way I work.” 
God’s Decree.
“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.
Just as rain and snow descend from the skies 
and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth,
Doing their work of making things grow and blossom, 
producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry,
So will the words that come out of my mouth 
not come back empty-handed.
They’ll do the work I sent them to do, 
they’ll complete the assignment I gave them” (Isaiah 55:8-11).

I’m actually glad God doesn’t think the way I think. I’m thankful that He’s not answerable to me for His actions. I’m glad that I’m not the one who sits over God, making sure He measures up to my standards of what He would or would not do.

In the end, I know God is good. I know that while His ways may at times eclipse my understanding, I know that His heart in all things is 100% trustworthy.

After all, how can the finite mind possibly hope to contain all of the infinite that is in God? How can a being bound by time ever completely know the Eternal?

So in the end I place my trust in God and say, “Your will, not mine, be done.”
