DAILY DEVO...HIs ways are not our ways

You may be familiar with the famous poem written by Reinhold Niebuhr, "The Serenity Prayer"...

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

Basically, it says there are some things in life that are beyond our ability to control.

Events can occur in our lives that seem at the time totally wrong. We may even ask God why He is allowing this to happen to us? Even though we do not see or understand does not mean that God doesn't have a plan. His ways are greater than our ways.

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord." -Isaiah 55:8

Even when life throws you things that seem out of control, and there isn't much you can do about it, know that God is able to turn things around. Nothing is too big for Him, after all, didn't He create the heavens and the earth in less than 7 days?

You may not be able to change your circumstances but you CAN trust God because His ways are greater than ours!
