“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts higher than your thoughts.
– Isaiah 55:8-9 (AMP)
Here is a Fact, God does not think as we do! In fact, a wise man once said that if we want to have an idea of how God’s mind works, we should look at the ways of a depraved man…and then switch it 360 degrees!
Where a natural man will avenge a wrong, our Lord will forgive. Where a man deprives another, the Lord will bless. He is absolutely and completely different, highly exalted and perfect. Besides Him, our depravity, weakness, and emptiness become apparent.
Yet, He does not wish that we remain in our carnal and lowly state. He is willing to share His exalted Nature with us.
Revelation 11:12: “Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here”
… He has called us to a Higher life.
Ephesians 1:21 tells us that In Christ we are raised“far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come”.
Halleluya! What a privilege to be joined with Christ.
To be a believer is an elevation from the mundane to the spiritual. It is access to great wisdom and excellence. It is the avenue to understanding and insight that cannot be mocked. Little wonder James 3:17 talks about a “wisdom that is from above”.
Take your position proudly in Christ! It is a place of elevated sight and elevated wisdom.
In Jesus Name I declare I am born of God. I am seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I am seated far above all principalities and powers, thrones and dominion. I am above limits and oppression. My thoughts are aligned with the thoughts of God because I have the Holy Spirit living in me. Amen.
