Trust God’s Ways

Trust God’s Ways
by Judy Hitson

Isaiah 55:8-9 NASB
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares 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.

Are you familiar with God’s ways?

When I read, Ps. 103:7 He made His ways known to Moses, His acts to the sons of Israel, my heart is gripped for more revelation and understanding on the ways of God.

We need to walk in God’s ways and not our own. The trust factor is the clincher! Let us ask:
Do I trust God’s ways or my ways?
Do I walk in His ways or my ways?
Am I God centered or self centered?
Am I selfless or selfish?

The answers to these questions determine where our trust lies, in God or self.

Many questions come to mind but the bottom line is, God says His ways are higher than ours. He also tells us to set our mind on things above, not on things on the earth, Col. 3:2.

Think about Jesus who did nothing apart from Father, John 15:19b NLT  Whatever the Father does, the Son also does. Let’s think about our lives now and consider  Luke 9:23 NASB And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.

This is an example in God’s word to understand one of God’s ways for us as Christians.
Do I deny myself, take up my cross daily and follow Jesus?

While asking God how He made His ways known to Moses, it struck my attention that Moses was alone on the mount with God. This brings to mind our need to spend time alone with God, to hear His voice, learn His ways, then trust and obey Him.

Pray with  me from Exodus 33:13-15NASB:
Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. Consider too, that this nation is Your people.”
Thank You Lord that Your presence will go with us and that You will give us rest. Don’t bring us up from here if Your presence doesn’t go with us. Amen.
