Isaiah 55:8

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are
your ways my ways declares the Lord." (NIV)

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are
your ways my ways, saith the LORD." (KJV)

It is such an awesome thing that God's thoughts and
ways are all wise and loving. Unlike us, He forgives
without seeking revenge, He forgives no matter how
many times we sin against Him. He forgives everyone
of both great and small infractions. God's plan of
salvation could never have been devised by man.
Because He has a plan for us, His ways will interfere
with ours, they will frustrate us, and take us to places
we never intended to go. But, we can trust Him because
He knows all things and we can accept His ways.

Heavenly Father, we are but dust and yet we try to
understand what you are doing. Help us to remember
that our minds are limited and we cannot understand
fully your plan and the ways you go about working
them out. Help us to accept your ways and to live
contentedly and with thankfulness that we serve an
almighty God. In Jesus' name, Amen.

I have been meditating on Isaiah 55 for over a week, and I keep seeing it and hearing messages on this text. Amen. I am thankful that God knows what He is doing when I don't and that when I'm in a trial, that the battle belongs to the Lord.
