My Thoughts vs God's Thoughts

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 
neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
 Isaiah 55:8


You can probably think of a time that you had a certain dilemma all figured out, God just needed to come through on His end. Well, He had a surprise for you didn’t He?

He provided you with what you needed, but not in the way you expected it to happen. I think that’s His way of reminding us that He’s taking care of us.


Children believe, beyond a shadow of a doubt that their caregiver will protect them and take care of them. That’s what Jesus wants from us. Never a doubt that He will be that caregiver for us and meet our needs. TRUST Him with complete confidence that He will do what is best for your life, He’ll guide you. He tells us in Isaiah 55:8, His ways are not our ways. Why?

Because He’s all knowing.

He knows our future.

He sees the Master plan.

Who better to put our trust in, than someone who knows us better than we know ourselves?

Have a blessed day.

It is a comfort to know that the Lord Jesus knows me so well. I always remember that to trust in Him it's not the same as to get what I want. Thanks so much for sharing Abby!

Amen to that! I have found out over the years how wonderful it is to not have to worry because I'm not in charge--worrying only makes me stressed out and I am so thankful that when I am living right, there's no need to fear! :)

Thanks...I needed to hear this today. Just resting in his parental protection is so important and yet so hard at times for a person who wants to fret about things. Gail (BibleLoveNotes.com)
