My Ways and Thoughts are Higher
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9).
So many times, I think I have it all figured out. Then God shows me that my tiny ways and thoughts are not going to work the way I expected. Several years ago, the Lord was teaching me this and reminding me that I needed to ask Him to show me how to do things.
I remember even giving God my to-do list. As I prayed about the list and asked Him which item to do first, second, and so on, it became an adventure. I saw Him go before me to accomplish things in a way that gave Him the glory, not me! By the way, it was much less stressful!

Lord, teach us today how to do things Your way. Teach us to ask for Your priorities, and then see how You have gone before to prepare the way. Teach us Your ways. Empower us through Your Holy Spirit to walk in them!
Pray that God’s people would walk in the Spirit and not gratify the desires of the flesh, which are evident in enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions and divisions.
