Last week we saw in Isaiah 55:7 that our ways can be wicked, our thoughts unrighteous. But God has compassion and He abundantly pardons.
Isaiah 55:8 confirms the difference this week: God thinks differently than we do; He acts differently than we do.
I’m glad He does! Aren’t you?
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
Isaiah 55:8 (ESV)
As we memorize Isaiah 55:8 this week, praise God often for thinking and acting so differently than us.

- Review Isaiah 55:1-7 upon awakening in the morning and before you go to sleep at night
