“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD” (Isaiah 55: 8).
Text: Isaiah 55:6-11.
Sometimes, you face massive turmoil and misery in life. As such, you cry out to God and it appears God is so far away and there is no help coming your way. In that situation, you feel lonely and discouraged. Such was the case of Elijah when he prayed that God should kill him because he was afraid of the threat from Jezebel. However, God still had work for him to do (1 Kings 19:2-4, 13-18). Remember, God’s thought concerning you is the thought of peace and not of evil but to give you an expected end (Psalm 115: 15).
Friend, you feel that God is unconcerned about your case? No, you are wrong if you do so, God cares for you more than you can ever imagine. That is why He is calling on everyone today to seek His face and completely turn away from sin, while there is time. To possess the mind of God and understand His thoughts and ways, your heart needs to be transformed and renewed by His Word and by seeking Him with all your heart.
God cares for you.
God loves you more than you can imagine.
Prayer for today
Oh God, renew my mind to conform to your thoughts.
