“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, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

The NLT rendering of our opening text says, 

“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.” 

You see, the way of God is always different from that of men. His thoughts and actions are far beyond human comprehension. God’s thoughts and instructions would always seem completely incongruous and absurd to the human mind.

Take a look at Abraham; first, God instructed him to leave his home and go to a place he didn’t know. Then, God tells him to change his name from Abram (assumed Father), to Abraham (Father of many nations), bearing in mind that he had no child. Then, God tells him years later, after getting a child to sacrifice that same child. Wow!

Think of Moses who was told to cross the Red sea with no boat, ship, or ferry, but a staff. How about Joshua; who was instructed by God to march around the city of Jericho, singing and dancing, instead of fighting.

The scriptures emphasize for us repeatedly, that there is no similarity between God’s mode of operation and ours.

Most times, following His ways could make you a laughing stock amongst your peers. How hard they must have laughed at each of these men. The reality is God will never send you on a mission that your human mind would readily comprehend. You may not understand; you may not be able to comprehend, but what matters most is that you obey.

Don’t expect the instruction to be such that your mind can easily accommodate. His thoughts are much higher than yours.

Never try to reason God. The more you reason, the dumber it sounds. Even when discouraging voices come up, your responsibility still remains; shun their words, shut out your human mind and simply obey God.
