Moment of Hope | Isaiah 55:9 – “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
I think most young people think this from time to time “my parents just don’t get it.” I know I thought that when I was in high school and wanting to listen to “cool” music and my mom didn’t approve. Or with clothes, when my mom would try to pick stuff out for me, I would say she just doesn’t understand what kids wear these days. And sometimes we have this mindset with God. We think, “God, I think you’re doing this wrong, I’m supposed to get this job, or I’m supposed to date this person, you should do it this way!” But we need to continually remember that His ways are higher than ours and He sees the whole picture, so He is right and we need to be able to humble ourselves and see the truth in His way of doing things.
God isn’t concerned about what is “cool” in man’s eyes. He’s only concerned about a right relationship with Him and our willingness to obey His Word. God knows what He’s doing. He only asks that we surrender our will for His. He’s older than you, smarter than you and loves you. You can trust Him today. It’s your moment.
