“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Recently I had a revelation of this verse. I used to believe that this verse was saying that we will never be able to understand the ways of God. Of course, this is true on some level. Because God is our creator, He is infinite, and we are finite. However, as a Biblical Counselor who understands the importance of being able to renew our mind in the word of God, I believe that we can ask God for divine wisdom and understanding. We can ask God to give us His view and His perspective in every area of our lives, so that we see through the lens of truth even when reflecting on “facts”. We can choose to have higher thoughts. We can choose what we focus on. We can create strategies that will create a fortress to protect our minds from the lies of the enemy.
Today, I pray that you will ask God for His perspective on your life. That you will ask Him to show you how He sees the matter before you. Believe what He tells you and refuse to see your situation any other way, than what God has declared it to be, until it is just what He has said!
