The Lord led me this morning to read Isaiah 55:8-9. "'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 than your thoughts.'"
The Lord is calling us. Are we hearing? He is wanting us to draw nearer to Him and to come up higher, to hear more clearly His thoughts and to learn His ways. Are we making enough time to wait upon Him? Have we let too many distractions get in the way? Are we willing to give up our ways and seek to learn His ways? Are we even thinking about how to hear the Lord; how to please the Lord; how to grow in faith, grace, and obedience?
God is thinking about all these things regarding us. We are always on His mind. He doesn't need to change. He is asking us to change. He is calling us out of the world and its ways. He is asking us to join Him in the ways of His Spirit and His Kingdom. Knowing His thoughts and His ways are essential. We are going to be the vessels that He works through, to perform miracles, healings, raising the dead, and deliverances. Do you truly believe that nothing is impossible with God? Do you believe that He wants to work through you? Will you trust Him and let Him train and equip you?
Many in the church today seem to have lost their focus, their purpose and destiny in Christ. Many have become lukewarm and casual about their Christian walk. Many have loved the world, letting the things of the world distract and entice them. Thus, they have become worldly minded, instead of knowing the mind of Christ and the way of the cross. Many have become content with a form of godliness, but do not have the power of God manifesting in their lives. God is calling us to return to a closer more intimate relationship with Him, in the Spirit.
Next, I was drawn to Isaiah 30:15. "For thus the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, has said, 'In repentance and rest you will be saved; in quietness and trust is your strength. But you were not willing.'"
Returning and repenting is always the first step to restoring a closer walk and relationship with the Lord, to receive His favor and blessing. Are we willing to ask God for forgiveness? He loves a humble heart. Repentance turns His ear to us. It opens His heart to us. It causes Him to draw us into His embrace. In His mercy, His blood cleanses us from our sin, in Jesus name. I believe the Lord has so much more for every believer! He is waiting on us to come closer. He wants to do great and mighty things through us as we yield to His thoughts and His ways. Are you confident in His love, His faithfulness, and His ability to lead you? There is nothing to fear. God is FOR you, therefore who can be against you? He gives His angels charge, over you!
Our nation is hanging in the balance. God loves this nation. God is waiting on His church to return, to hear His voice, to learn His ways, and obey His Spirit's leading. He can turn things around amazingly fast, when we get into alignment with Him. Are you willing? Are you ready? Let me encourage you to seek Him, wait upon Him, and trust Him. In His love and faithfulness, He will respond and reveal Himself to you. He will show you the way; for He alone, is the way, the truth, and the life. Enjoy life's journey, with faith in God!
