“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says 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.
What was reaffirmed to me in the past couple of months by God is His absolutely sovereignty. Our finite brains cannot comprehend even the slightest working of God in His will.
When you trust in God alone, meaning total submission, expect the unexpected. Expect that you also may have to look back and see the wondrous thing or things God had done. People you would have never even thought of or met might be placed by Him in your life to support you and to help you. While those you expected to rise up are nowhere to be found. This lesson kept reverberating through my Mom’s accident and recovery, and now with my own trauma as I help Leo my trusted companion of a dog fight for his life.
Our ways, our thoughts meaning logic are never equaled to God’s wisdom. Some might arrogantly believe they know the mind of God completely or that they can out-wit God or hide things from Him, but they will eventually be in for a rude awakening. It is just a matter of time!
By submitting to the great God Almighty, you will be at peace and also joyful!! I cannot tell you all the joy through this trauma He has graced me with, but it continues as I see His hand in so many places. People I least thought of prayed and supported us, He protected us on a long journey, and just little things throughout each day of which He showed me NEVER to take for granted!
If God to you is the “grumpy man upstairs” or your personal ATM machine or personal genie, you do not know who God is! He is omniscient meaning all knowing, omnipresent meaning everywhere at the same time, and omnipotent meaning all powerful, there is nothing too great for our God!

Amen Jeff God’s sovereignty just blows my mind,
Yes Robert Narboe, the more we study His sovereignty to the more at peace we are!
