Day Four: Beyond Higher

Isaiah 55:8-9 (NLT)

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
    “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so my ways are higher than your ways
    and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

Worship leads us to seek and trust God’s judgment and leading over our lives. Let’s look in depth through the Prophet Isaiah.

(1) In what ways do you find comforting to know that God’s thoughts are nothing like our thoughts?

(2) What is the prophet trying to tell us about the distance that exists between our ways compared to the Lord? What is he trying to make sure that we understand?

(3) Next time you sing a song of worship that exalts the Lord and His wonderful ways, think about how it comes directly against reliance on self-generated thinking and decision making. What changes should you make in your decision-making strategies?

Prayer: Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to help us trust God’s ways and thoughts (judgments) and to be thoroughly transformed by the word of God.

Song: Let’s proclaim as sing, “God and God Alone” by Chris Tomlin (click here).
