For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:9 (ESV)
The more intelligence we gather about our world, the more we know we don’t know.
The same is true for the gap between God’s ways and thoughts and our ways and thoughts. The more we learn about God, the more we know there’s much more to learn.
And the more we seek Him (Isaiah 55:6) because of His greatness, the more in awe we are of His compassion and mercy (Isaiah 55:7) to accept us as His own.
Look up at the daytime sky and the nighttime stars this week to thank God for His immeasurable power and grace to bridge the distance for us.
