Marie’s daily verse: Isaiah 45:22 “Turn to me and be saved, 

all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other


‘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’” (Isaiah 55:8-9).

The words of Isaiah need to be remembered. Some have said, “God is God, and we are not.” God has revealed Himself to us in the Scriptures and His Son Jesus, the Messiah. We need to know how to relate to God. God’s Word and Jesus are our guides. We know God loves us, that Jesus died for us, and that our sins are forgiven. Isaiah reminds us that while we know much about God, we don’t know everything.

We live our lives trusting in Jesus. As life unfolds, there is so much we don’t understand. God’s thoughts and God’s ways are way above us. When we do not know what is happening, we must continue to trust the Father and the Son. We are to walk by faith even when we do not understand the mind of God. We know He loves us and is always working for our good. We can rest in those truths.

Father, I confess there is much I do not understand about Your ways. Please help me to walk by faith and not by what is happening in my life. I believe You love me no matter what. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
