‘“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says 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.’ Isaiah 55:8-9
When we love someone, one of the things we try and understand is their likes and dislikes: what does it take to bring joy to that person and what puts the person off. As we find these things out, we then put in effort to do them, because genuinely want to be part of their lives and want to have a good relationship with them. Interestingly when it comes to God, we tend to think of Him in terns of what we would like and how we function. However, he has made it very clear that His ways are very different from our ways.
If God’s ways are different, then the question we would ask ourselves is: what does it take to please God? Otherwise, we run the risk of offending Him, and not even knowing that’s what we are doing, or spending a lot of energy on things that He doesn’t count as important. The good thing is as we spend time in His word, we receive clarity on the answer to this and so much more. This series, we are digging into the Word of God to understand what it takes to delight God and we pray the Holy Spirit will grant us clarity as we embark on this journey.
