“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
~ Isaiah 55:8,9
I’d like you to be determined to plug into God’s thoughts and His ways. That way, you can create His manifestations in your life. May you be empowered by the Spirit of God as you live each day of your life to disconnect from your own human thoughts, to disconnect from the thoughts of the world, to disconnect from your own ways, and plug into God’s thoughts, and God’s ways.
When God says that His ways and His thoughts are different, and ultimately superior to the ways of the world, take a look at what He means. He is telling us that when you’re thinking the thoughts of God and working in the ways of God, the world will neither understand you, nor be able to comprehend your moves; in fact, they won’t be able to see you coming; that’s how you beat them.
You are the light of the world, and as a result, you’re supposed to beat the world and its ways very easily. You’re supposed to excel them in any and all fields. In any endeavor you find yourself engaged in, wherever you may find yourself, always remember that you are the light of the world. You set the pace, and everybody else just follows.
You are from the Father. You are led by the Holy Spirit. You are connected with God. Consequently, you should always stay ahead, while the rest of the world plays catch-up.
The church today is trying to copy the ways of the world; trying to succeed by adopting the methods of the world – the priorities and scale of preference of the world. However, it is inspiring and refreshing to see a man of the spirit who is thinking God’s thoughts, walking in God’s ways, and speaking God’s words. Such a person is always a question mark to the rest of the world.
