Rest in Him · Way

learning to rest… in His way… not mine…

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither 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.
Isaiah 55:8-9 ESV
His way… it’s hardly ever the way we would do things…
and at times… it’s a struggle to rest in His way…
I see the tears…
hear the crack in the voice…
feel my own frustration…
of those…and me… trying to trust in His way…
rest in what He’s up to…
He tells us plainly…
My thoughts… are not yours…
My ways… are not yours…
I’m greater…

So why are we surprised…?
when things don’t go our way…?
the way we think they should…?
Really… it’s time to rest…
rest in His sovereignty…
His love…
His way which is so much higher… greater…
trusting Him… to fulfill what He promises…
in His time… and His way…
It’s a lesson for a lifetime…
learning to trust… in His way…
not mine…
