The ways of God are not the ways of Man. That is why he is the Aplha and Omega.
Man proposes, God disposes

Pam, I definitely agree with you! That is why in most times, we perceived that GOD is abondoning us when in fact, He is carrying us through or He has a different and much better path for us, all according to His divine purpose and will. We have to surrender everything to the Triune GOD, knowing that we are in good hands to an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, merciful and unchanging Triune GOD. GOD bless you, Pam!

Exactly! Sometimes I feel that way. I feel God is not listening, but then again I remind myself about this verse and I sing praises and say let God’s will be done irrespective of my emotions. God bless you Kent!
True, Pam, the Triune GOD works in mysterious ways indeed. In that situation, especially when we are “broken” we can also recall 2 Corinthians 12:9 with the line, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (ESV) I’m saving that verse for later. GOD’s grace is sufficient; what we perceived, in our way/standards that GOD did not listen/answer our prayer, ultimately won’t matter when we are in heaven.
You are right
Good morning from the Philippines, Pam!
Good morning Kent. I am wishing you a fulfilled day
Thank you very much, Pam! GOD bless you!
Amen, Kent! How are you my brother?!
Hi Mandy! Actually, I’m the one who will ask, how are you? I have not seen your post lately. Before that, this is a good verse to recall as a prelude in a series of verses on law, grace, justification etc. GOD’s thoughts and ways are indeed so way beyond (quadrillions in light years gap just to give even a small chunk of its measure in distance) those He created. His grace for one is unfathomable to conceive when we stubbornly just want to work our way to salvation. His love for us when we we constantly rebel. His mercy to us when we simply lost faith. Even the baddest person in town, when he repents, change ways, and walks in faith in JESUS CHRIST, in the guidance now of the HOLY SPIRIT (since he/she received Christ), gets to praise GOD the FATHER in heaven. I’m fine, Mandy, thank GOD for His constant grace and protection from the invisible enemy. I have not left the house or beyond the gate since late March but I’m enjoying this new normal with tasks, chores, shows, and this ministry.
Hi, Kent! You have such an amazing, positive and beautiful spirit, praise God for YOU!! I am inspired by you! I love your upcoming verses, so encouraging! Praise God for His salvation! As for me, I am formulating the thoughts on my next blog entry. I try to blog once a week; however, if I do not have something to write or share then I wait until God places something on my heart where I am absolutely compelled to share (I hope that makes sense!). Thank God for the ministry that our Triune God has given to YOU! Father God, thank You Lord for Kent! Continue to inspire Kent and his family with Your peace and presence. Lead them in Your thoughts and ways. Guide them by Your Truth and may their confidence rest solely in You. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.
Mandy,…thank you very much for your prayers, this one and the very first! Thank GOD for answering your prayers back then Mandy; without GOD’s intervention, inspiration, and even grace, it is hard to respond without the words. It is all GOD’s words and not mine. All praises to the Triune GOD; for His purpose and will in us and of this world. With that in mind, I understand and appreciate each Godly article that I read as we grow in our faith in JESUS CHRIST alone. Please pray for the Triune GOD’s will and guidance in the sequencing of verses and that it will be coherent. Thank you very much for your encouragement! Looking forward to read your article. GOD bless you and your family!
Taglay ng Diyos ang “karunungan mula sa itaas”
Amen! Tama po kayo, Ed! Ang karunungan ng Panginoong Diyos po ay sobrang sobrang layo kaysa taong sobrang sobrang lawak ang karunungan o pinaka marunong/henyu na tao sa buong sanlibutan. Kaya, karamihan, iba ang aktwal na nangyari kaysa kung ano ang dinadasal. Sapagkat [ salita na ito malalim na at pormal na tagalog na to] mas alam ng Panginoong Diyos kung ano ang tutuong kailangan ng tao kaysa anong alam ng tao kung anong kailangan sa sarili niya. Ito lahat ay para sa kaluwalhatian ng Panginoong Diyos. [Napansin ko po, mas maraming beses akong nag check ng translation at spelling pag tagalog; bisaya e.]
A good reminder that God is not like man. God is infinite and we are finite; therefore even His thoughts are qualitatively different than ours and not just with quantity of “truths” known.
True, Jim! A reminder from GOD that as the creator of everything in the universe, GOD processes cosmic events and human situations, totally different than us; motives included.
Isaiah 55:8-9 brings to mind Romans 11: 334-34.
Blessing to you and your family Clark
Thank you, Crissy! You are right, they have the same message! These verses support each other. Good evening, wait it is bordering midnight there; you’re two hours ahead of us. Likewise, GOD bless you!
GOD bless, Crissy!
So true! We have to subdue to His will. It is not about what we think may be best for us it is about what God knows is best because He can see the end from the beginning.
His thoughts and His ways are always the best. We have to trust Him! Thanks for sharing this scripture. Keep ministering.
Yes, I completely agree with you! The omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient GOD’s will is foremost. His plans for us is far greater than our well-thought plans/ambitions. My apologies, it took long for me to respond to your comment. I just discovered your comment among those that were diverted to spam for no reason at all, GOD bless you!
This verse always puts me in peace, and makes me feel secure. 🕊
Yes, knowing that GOD knows all, processes thoughts differently, and is good, we anchor ourselves to Him who sustains us, Tamara! We also surrender all our concerns and anxieties to the GOD that saves us. Keep safe.
