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
There are times in life when we assume that our desires are in line with God’s will. We somehow disregard the process of asking Him if what we desire is His will for us. We are afraid to learn that our plans are in disagreement with His. Following the wrong path has led many believers into unnecessary and unwanted situations, because they did things their way without asking God to guide them. Always remember that as human beings we make mistakes, and are often in conflict with God’s will. God’s ways are on a higher level, and we may not understand why He chooses for things to be a certain way but we still need to trust Him. He sees all things in the future, while we can only assume what is about to happen. Let us therefore, lay down all our earthly longings and start inquiring what God wants for us. Let us choose His perfect will over ours
Heavenly Father, please forgive me for my ignorance at times when I do things on my own. Help me to be completely dependent on You. Develop a character in me that will shape me to be a child who will always choose Your will. Amen.
