Right Thinking

Wisdom Hunter 1/1/2017
For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the LORD.  As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.  – Isaiah 55:8
God’s will does not always make sense.  This may be because we factor in our own understanding.  If left to our own understanding, we would be miserable.  There is a greater pool of knowledge reserved for us in Christ.  Do not underestimate its value and availability.  It is valuable because of the divine direction that can save us from running down paths that waste our time and the time of others.  God’s way may not make sense now, but it will later.  His thoughts and ways are easily accessible by faith.
Faith is our constant connection to Godly thinking, but we struggle with this because we have been programmed differently.  Some of us wrongly think we don’t deserve God’s grace, so we don’t feel the need to receive it.  We cannot, however, live the Christian life without the grace of God.  God’s way is the way of grace.  We give Him glory; and, He gives us grace.  We give Him praise and He gives us peace. We give Him worship and He gives us confidence.  This is the way of God.  He created the original “road less traveled.”  Avoid the mindless masses and follow God.  His ways may not be the most popular, but they are the most productive.  His thoughts transcend our thoughts.
Think God-sized thoughts, and expect God-sized results.  Make His ways your ways, and incorporate His thinking into your thinking. It may seem peculiar at first, and others may label you as strange; but you know better. This is right-thinking.  And when your thinking is right, you can’t go wrong.
