Higher Ways. September 13
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9
Sometimes God Just doesn’t do as we expected or thought he would. This is certainly not because he wasn’t able to do what we thought. It is because he works on a higher plane than you and I. Most of us ask for the Lord to draw us closer to him. Seems maybe he would just by his own doing swoop us into his bosom to stay. This however is not the way he usually works that request. It is often that he leads us through trials and tests even allowing our way to be difficult. You and I are thinking this is not helping me get closer to God. But we will find in the long run God knows just what he is doing. Thru all the reverses and troubles in this world we began to realize this place is not my home and we move ourselves to be closer to God. And to have less attractions here. Which frees are time to be closer to God as we desire in the first place. Perhaps God wants to see if we’re serious about being closer to him. But know this it is him, acting in his ways that will fulfill the request of; Lord draw me closer to you. So ask him on this Sunday, Lord draw me nearer to you. I believe he will answer.
