For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
God’s got a plan… and a light… and a saltshaker… God opens windows and doors for His entry. A trial becomes an opportunity for God to move – and when we take the time to put on our armor of God right before the conversations, we are not caught off guard. When we put on our armor of God, we can stay outside in the fray longer and make our way from His Way.
Sometimes, when we put on our armor of God, we can actually hear the clinks of the world bearing down on the armor, taking swipes and not penetrating, but feel and know SECURITY OF SPIRIT. After the battle quiets, then we may speak with softened hearts.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
