Are God’s ways higher than your ways?
Are His thoughts higher than your thoughts?
That seems quite obvious, especially when what you are doing has nothing to do with His ways.
Jesus did what He saw the Father doing. Can you see anything that the Father is doing?
If you can, then the Holy Spirit has been working to show you what He has been taking from what Jesus can see the Father doing.
For Jesus said, “The Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name, He will guide you into all truth, for He will glorify Me.
Everything that the Father has is mine, and He will take from what is Mine and show it to you…..”
Is this difficult to understand?
To the natural mind it would be hard to fathom how this could be. But the Word of The LORD states that,
“No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has in store for those who love Him. But God reveals those things to those who love Him by His Spirit, yes even the deep things of God”.
Therefore the heart of man has to change, doesn’t it?
There has to be a transformation taking place in the heart of man to be able to comprehend what is the length, the width, the depth and the height and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge.
The love that surpasses knowledge is quite a deep concept, a mystery, that can only be revealed, uncovered, made known by revelation.
Then the transformation that allows us to know the love of Christ has to take place through humbling ourselves in the Presence of the LORD.
“I beseech you brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which will be your worship. And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you can prove what is the good, and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Now, why should you “labor for that which doesn’t satisfy”?
Why should you spend money on that which is not bread?
“Come, delight yourself in Me,” says the LORD, “and I will show you what is good.”
“It is your Father’s good pleasure to give to you the Kingdom.”
Now can you see what the Father is doing?
“Seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.”
