8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Today’s Inspiration: Many things happened to our life not according to our plan and before we know it, we are ensnared and paralysed with much fear and distress. Such was the life of many Biblical heroes. David definitely never envisaged his calling of king of Israel being so rejected by his father and brothers. So does Joseph and Jacob. To yield to the challenges of God is a task but at the end of it all, we become vessels of honor much to our amazement.
God’s plans are higher than our plans. His purposes are higher. Isaiah 55.8-9.
Why do we shun His calling? My view is that many times we have bigger plans for ourselves that had nothing to do with God. That plan will never work if it’s not His calling. Our ways are not His ways.
If God calls us, He will give you the anointing no matter what men’s opinion are. The disciples’ definitely love their vocation but Jesus had to clear the fishes from the ocean so that they caught no fish or they will not have followed Him. Luke 5. You can never expand your physical world without first having the spiritual thinking of knowing God’s purpose for your life. Genesis 12:2 already reminds you that He will pour out His blessings beyond measure so that you can be a blessing. If He has called you, He will take you to His promised land. So don’t wait further but possess it so that blessings keep overflowing to bring glory to His name. Deuteronomy 28:2-3. God be praised!
