Have you ever experienced a moment in your life where you wonder, “What in the great world, is the Lord trying to teach me through this awful and tough situation?”
Well ladies, I am here to share with you that I have experienced one too many of those situations in my life time, but I am reminded that these are situations that I can now look back on and reflect. I am able to see how God has taught me some very valuable life lessons through these tough seasons.
Isaiah 55:8-9 says…
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares 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 read and re-read this Scripture, I was left baffled every time. My thoughts nor my ways are not like the Lord’s? Well, that does make sense because I am a sinner saved by grace. But then I read the line “…my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
This gave me such an incredible amount of reassurance within my heart. God is higher than every thought, situation, season or battle that I am walking through. God has higher thoughts than I do. He has a plan for those moments where I question, “What in the world am I supposed to be learning through this God??” He is in the Heavens which is higher than the Earth, and through these times I question Him, truly He is to be praised. He is to be bowed down to because I can’t see the life-lesson He’s teaching me, but He has wonderful plans.
Ladies, let’s pray:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank You for today and for You uncovering this message from underneath some ‘stuff’ in my heart. I ask that these words would be sealed within the lives of these readers; that they would be able to understand that You are a BIG God and You’re higher than any season, situation, circumstance, or battle that they are facing. I pray that through these scriptures and encouragement, they would be reminded that YOU have unique plans for each and every one of them specifically. We pray this in Your precious and holy name, Jesus. Amen!
Until Next Time,
