His ways, his thoughts… most high.

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 ESV   

  

We are such simple minded creatures. Many of us work hard, study hard, plan for a future that may not be what God wants for us. Our thought process is not like God’s. We doubt, we make lists. We find the pros and we find the cons. We try to see what outweighs what in deciding things.

  

God doesn’t plan or think like we do. He knows what the outcome is going to be. He just does. He knows what’s best for us. We can plan, prep, decide, think all we want, at the end of the day he has the final say to our outcome.
If what we are working hard for something and trying to decide what to do, if it is not in God’s will, guess what? It will not come to pass. 
There will be obstacles that come up.

You may think geez man I didn’t expect that.

Then you try again, more obstacles come up almost making what we want impossible.
This is your warning from God telling you, “my child, listen up, this pathway you want to take is not good for you. This path you want to walk is dangerous, this road you want to take is not the road I have in mind for you.”
We need to work more on our listening to God skill vs our I got this I will figure it out mind frame.
Listening to someone other than oneself can be difficult.
Focusing on knowing if we are listening to God is a whole other ball game. 
Our eyes, our ears, our hearts need to be spiritually open, will and able in order to listen to him.

Father I thank you today for being wiser than I am. I thank you for your thought process which I could never compare to. I thank you for your guidance and love. I thank you for talking to me. I want to work on my own ability to keep my eyes, ears and heart spiritually open to always be able to know when your speaking. I love you for always guiding me in to the right direction. I fully trust in you. Amen

His Thoughts

“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.”
(Jeremiah 29 11)
No matter what anyone thinks of you.
No matter what anyone says about you.
No matter if people claim you are destined for failure.
Have faith in knowing that none of that matters.
His thoughts of you is what matters.
All he wants is for us to have peaceful lives, he has plans to give us a future filled with hope not despair.
We have all been in situations where we were brought down emotionally by those we sought out council because in their eyes we were not worthy.
We didn’t meet a specific standard in their eyes.
Our abilities or talents were not up to par to their views of things.
We also judge ourseleves the way other’s judge us.
Man, I messed up pretty bad.
Man I regret what I did.
Many thre is no getting out of that.
Man there is no hope for me.
Geez, why? what now?
You begin to think your future is bleak.
You begin to live with that seed of doubt.
You begin to live with that seed of depression.
You begin to live with that sed of failure.
You proceed to live with that seed of self conviction.
What we need to realize is that our short comings, our mistakes are not powerful.
How others define you is not powerful.
These internal and external attributes we focus on does not define you for who you are.
God is up there, looking down at us wanting to give us a cocotaso (knock some sense in to you, in laymans term) and say, child listen.
I have plans for you which are greater than you can comprehend.
I need you to uproot those seeds of doubt, depression, failure and convitions.
I need you to let go of what was said to you.
All that is nothing, compared to the mighty things I can do with you.
All that is petty and Mediocre compared to what I see in you.
Your plans may have been ruined.
Your plans may have hit a snag or bump in the road.
God already has the answer with a back up plan, an alternative route, the gps is re-calculation, you just have to listen.
Open your eyes, humble your heart, open your ears so you can move forward with what God has instore for you.
What he see’s no one else can see.
What he has planned no one else has planned.
When you hear his voice, don’t be scared.
Listen.
Follow.
Tust in his guidance.
He will give you peace, love and hope for your future.
Father God I thank you for viewing me as your loving child. Thank you for accepting me and loving me despites my mistakes, despite my failures, despite my downfall. I ask, as I always do, to allow me to always hear your guidance and direction. To always be able to discern your vioce so I can follow your command. To allow me to uproot an seeds of negativity so that your will can be done. To be able to rebuke negativity entering my life. To not allow anyone’s opinion of their views of my personality to take away what you have instore for me. I am looking for peace, which only you can provide, with love, that only you can provide, with hope for the future you have promised me. I trust your holy name. Amen
