“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. – Isaiah 55:8
God’s wisdom and ways often opposed to our wisdom and ways. Often, God wants us to do something that goes against our human logic. Both Scripture and history have taught God’s wisdom to be infinitely above that of men. The wisdom of God is vastly higher and infinitely superior to the wisdom of men.
Perhaps God’s work in your life is a mystery at this very moment. Maybe you have lost your job or your partner. Possibly you are facing circumstances that seem to promise only defeat or disaster. However if you are a child of God, He is in control and is working out your good and His glory using the very circumstances that puzzle you. You do not need to know the secrets which God has chosen to conceal. Know what God has promised and to trust and obey.
God’s wisdom is infinitely above and beyond our knowledge or grasp, we should expect God to accomplish His will in a way we would never have imagined. I suspect with this in mind, most of our prayers would be substantially improved by reducing our petitions and increasing our praise.
