6 Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. 7 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. 8 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD. 9 "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. 10 "For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, 11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:6-11 (NKJV)

If we could see people and life through Gods’ eyes, we would view the world differently.
In the difficult person who is hard to love; we would see a broken spirit and a troubled heart and mind. In the circumstances that leave us blinded with pain and reeling with grief; we would know that God is holding us and giving us strength for each moment.
When there is confusion and chaos, we would see the big picture and how God can work for the good in all things.

Pray for understanding and guidance as you walk through each day. Ask God to help you to love and forgive as He has done for us.

Finally remember, that God’s word is far more powerful than what we can even begin to imagine.

Although sometimes it is difficult to understand why God has tested us in certain ways, we all need to remember that God is in control.
