“The Lord spoke to me: ‘My thoughts aren’t like the thoughts you’ve been having, and the ways I deal with everything are beyond what you’ve been imagining. They’re as high above how you’ve been thinking and living as the heavens are above the earth'” (Isaiah 55:8-9).
When God tells you his ways of thinking and seeing the world are more powerful than yours, and how he’s created you to live is far greater than the way you’ve been existing, it’s not a criticism. It’s an invitation.
Fear, depression, and bitterness have been so desperate to attack you because they’re terrified of what you could become in God’s love, joy, and peace by the time this is over.
