Isaiah 55:9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
We all have a way of doing things. We generally follow a series of patterns for getting ready in the morning, a series of patterns throughout our day at work, and an order we stick to every evening. When something comes in and messes up the pattern, it can cause discomfort and chaos in our day. But when we want to see a change in our lives, we have to disrupt these patterns and habits and make small changes that will result in a big shift!
The prophet Isaiah writes that God’s ways are far superior to our ways. What patterns or habits can God help you perfect that would literally shift your life and take you from frustrated or complacent to victorious, excited about the future, and joyful in your life? We have access to God’s ways through the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Renewal Thought: As you go about your day today and this week, ask the Holy Spirit what patterns and habits you are carrying out that are not helpful and ask God to help you show you His higher ways.
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for the higher thoughts and higher ways that You have for me. I repent of the lower life and seek after the high life of Your perfect will. I pray You help me see when I am walking into a lower way and help me stay on the high way of life. Your ways are higher than mine, so I pray You keep me in Your Way
