"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." ESV
Often times we believe that God should work within the boundaries of our human reasoning. When we do that, we tend to see things going very wrong, not at all what we asked from Him. Our prayers seem to have hit the ceiling, and we wonder why God is so far away He cannot hear us. Listen! We are commanded in the Word to bring our concerns to Him, but we are not commanded to tell Him how to take care of these things for us. We are only to trust in Him, to know He is in control, and to know that He hears us. He will take care of it all His way, not ours.
Heavenly Father, forgive us for expecting You to answer our prayers in the way we think You should. Help us to leave our petitions at the throne of grace and trust that You will take care of it all in Your way. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
