Scripture:   Isaiah (NIV) 55:8  “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.

9  “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” 

Observation:   We may be astonished at what man has been able to accomplish.  With the application of computer technology a man has actually stood on the surface of the moon!  Several satellites have flown past Saturn.  The amount of information we have gained is amazing, but still so little compared to the knowledge of the Creator of stars Himself!  If we are measuring IQ or brain power, man and man’s inventions do not begin to approach the knowledge and understanding of the LORD!  We are still discovering things about our body, about DNA, about organs and tissues.  Yet God has known these things from creation. 

Application:  When I need help, I look for someone who knows more than I do.  How blest I am to know the God whose ways and thoughts are higher than mine!  How foolish for me to ignore the directions from God who has perfect knowledge of who I am, how I work, and why I am here. 

Prayer:   Lord, I am so glad your ways and thoughts are higher than mine.  I always know where to go when I have a need.  Amen
