God Thoughts

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says 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.

God reminds us that His ways and thoughts are unfathomably beyond ours. It is good to remember that when we are interceding –for the lost, or for seemingly impossible situations. In that light, also remember:

  • Light is more powerful than darkness.
  • Truth is stronger than error.
  • There’s more grace in God’s heart than sin in men’s hearts.
  • There’s more power in the Holy Spirit to convict men of sin than there is power of satanic forces to tempt men to sin.
  • There’s more power in one drop of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus to cleanse men’s hearts from the stain of sin than there is in the accumulated filth of men’s sin since Adam and Eve.

“Flowers, what are they? They are but the thoughts of God solidified—God’s beautiful thoughts put into shape. Storms, what are they? They are God’s terrible thoughts written out that we may read them. Thunders, what are they? They are God’s powerful emotions just opened out that men may hear them. The world is the materializing of God’s thoughts, for the world is a thought in God’s eyes. He made it first from a thought that came from His own mighty mind and everything in the majestic temple that He has made has a meaning!”

C.H. Spurgeon

    Very humbling, Manny. The scripture really puts us in our true place. And then there are the words of Mr. Spurgeon. I don’t have much bookshelf space, but one entire shelf is taken up with Mr. Spurgeon’s sermons. I will never read them all, but I have learned a great deal from the man. I will never hear Mr. Spurgeon’s voice until I get to heaven, but his written words are wonderful. After the Bible, Mr. Spurgeon’s texts are my favorites. The man had a gift.

    Thanks for sharing my friend…

      I agree. When i think about some person who thinks because they may have a high IQ and want to vent their atheistic, agnostic or heretical view points about God, i have to L.O.L. Man and his pipsqueek thoughts. We cannot even conceive of His ways. He has mercy on us and explains some absolute minor things to us because of His mercy, love and compassion. Yet He does not treat us with contempt, as some people. Such a sad loss for all. Take care.
