How The Holy Spirit Works Limitlessly (Evening)
Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.
When we read Isaiah 55: 8-9, we think that God has a different plan from what we have planned. It is like heaven and earth. That’s not wrong. If we pondered it deeper, it is written “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: 9). The words ‘HIGHER’ indicate that GOD HAS A PLAN THAT IS MUCH BIGGER, bigger than the vision we have planned for our life.
This is what happened to Joseph. He thought, his life was on the right track. He had the vision to be a leader. And in his father’s house, he was also equipped with a lot of knowledge. He could be a leader in his father’s house. But it turned out that GOD HAS A BIGGER PLAN AND VISION. And by His unexpected scenario, Joseph was brought up far beyond human expectations. He became the great ruler over all of Egypt. That is a miracle!
The same thing will happen in our life. Pandemic made us experience setbacks. We must fight to find a way out. We start making plans for our lives. But never forget that what God has planned for our lives is MUCH BIGGER THAN WHAT WE CAN THINK. That’s why we need His guidance more. Don’t give up whatever we are facing. Commit to going to the upper room. Seek His approval, develop a close relationship with God, and do not allow our first love to fade. We will be led through His unexpected ways and we will see His vision and plan that is much bigger than we can think to be fulfilled in our lives. Hallelujah!
The Holy Spirit can work in DIFFERENT WAYS from what we have in mind because HIS WAYS ARE LIMITLESS.
1. What plans you have made for your future?
2. How do you involve God and ask Him for guidance in each plan that you have made?
3. What differences did you find when you carry out a plan that involves God and that does not?
“Holy Spirit, thank you because You faithfully guides us. We believe that you have a big plan in your life. Teach us to understand Your plan, O Lord, and this is our commitment, that we will walk according to Your guidance. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
