God’s word declares in Isaiah, “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 than your thoughts.” Yet I expect them to be.
Why? Because I want what I want. It’s convenient. It’s comfortable. It’s safe. It’s easy. But what I’ve come to realize is that when my life is any of those four listed, I’m not living in God’s will for my days. He is pretty much the opposite.
I once had someone ask me how I know when God is speaking to me or answering prayer and I told them “because it’s pretty much the opposite of what I was expecting or it’s an answer that wasn’t even in the realm of my thought process.” True story.
So here’s the thing, it’s a choice. We can choose to live in safety and continue praying for security, or we can live the life designed for us, the supernatural life. On any day I hate my life and love my life, but on the days I submit to His will for my breaths, those are the transformative days. The days that matter. The days that change the world. The days that make me weep more than I should, and the days that give me a glimpse into Heaven.
Quit being disappointed in God, for His ways will never be your ways, but they will be the right ways. Fall into the story He’s written for you. You will definitely be surprised
