“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9
A young child has no idea...
- what tasks their parent must complete on any given day
- what future plans, like vacations or moving, are in the works
- what to be on guard for and/or what they are currently being protected from
- how insanely much their parent loves them when they look at their little face
Good parents don't worry their child about the future or show them every dangerous trap as it comes, nor can they accurately put into words the love and joy that child brings them. May we allow ourselves to be like little children and trust that our Heavenly Father knows more and better than we do. It's not ignorance; it's faith.
Heavenly Father, thank You for being the best dad there could ever be. I trust that Your ways are higher than mine and that You are always in control. Your love knows no bounds and You are always for me. I love You, too. Amen.
