Loving God’s Ways

From Doug Wolter’s Blog Life Together

“God’s ways are not our ways and his thoughts are not our thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8

The text goes on to say that God’s Word and his ways are like the rain and snow that gently fall down and sink into the earth, which in time, brings forth life. Foster writes,

What a contrast with our ways, which involve wanting to open up another person’s head and tinker around in there for a bit! But you see, God’s ways are all patience and love, all grace and mercy. Our ways are domination and control, all manipulation and guile.

 

You see it’s one thing to love God; it’s quite another to love God’s ways.
