When all the news is negative, the evil of man is on public display, human life seems to have no value to many, I need to go to God’s book for encouragement.  It is easy to allow the world to determine our attitude and our outlook on life, but as a child of God, I have a better view!

Isaiah 55:8

“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 thought than your thoughts.  NKJV

From Oswald Chambers:

There are experiences in human lives which are not part of God’s purpose, but the result of human perversity.  Remember, trust in God does not mean that God will explain His solutions  to us, it means that we are perfectly confident in God, and when we do see the solution we find it in to be in accordance with all that Jesus Christ revealed of His character.

Reflection Question: If I truly believe that God is better than the best, and more powerful than the greatest, why do I still trust my own understanding of things?
