Conclusion

We need to recognize that God does not think like man thinks, and begin seeking to think like God thinks!

Isaiah 55:7-9


Isaiah 55 7 9 l.jpg
Isaiah 55:7-9

Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. “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.”
