GOD’S WAYS OR YOURS?
Main Text: Isaiah 55:8-9 – “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways…”
Exodus 34:6 – “The Lord God merciful and gracious”
Your ways or man’s way will fail, but God’s way stands. The book of James makes it clear. “Go now, you that say “Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain, whereas you know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? You ought to say, “If the Lord will or permit, we shall live and do this or that… (James 4:13:15).
For Apostle James, it is what God says or God’s ways, not your way or what you say that takes effect. God’s way is supreme. In the beginning of creation God spoke, He once said. “Let there be light” “and there was light to this day.” His command endures and makes the sun work the way it does. His ways are the most real things of all. His ways are good, merciful, kind, holy, peace, love, longsuffering, care etc. All positive attributes are His ways.
To have faith in God means to have faith in a God who acts, who answers prayers, who performs wonders. Read what He was and believe what He is, “The Lord who is, and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8). “Have faith in God” leave things to Him. He does all things well.
READ WHAT HE WAS, AND BELIEVE WHAT HE IS.
