8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. 9 “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 NIV
Sometimes when I sit in prayer it becomes more of a dialog. As a matter of fact, frequently that happens. I’m thankful that God often interjects. One day I heard him say, “Seek peace.” So I asked what He meant by that. How do I seek peace? He nailed it. I was troubled about a lot of things. I won’t go down His list but I was clearly not at peace. So my question back to Him was, but all the things you mentioned are things that you told me not to worry about…And I heard Him say “Exactly. Then why are you troubled?” I had to laugh. My God is definitely a living breathing God…with a sense of humor. So I work every day to cast all my troubles onto Him. There is nothing too great or too small. He promises that if we do that, our burden will be light. So why are you troubled? J
Lord, thank you for taking my troubles and making my burden light…exactly as You designed!
