‘Bigness’ of God
8“For my thoughts are not
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher
than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
What We see vs. What God sees
- We see the problem
- God sees the path to maturity
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.
Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. 19 They will fight against you
GOD HAS A PLAN AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT WE CAN DO TO STOP IT
For the LORD Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.
