God Reasons Differently

God Reasons Differently

 

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9).

 

       The Bible clearly reveals to us that God doesn’t reason like men do. Take for example, how He changed a childless old man’s name from Abram, which meant “assumed father,” to Abraham, meaning “father of many” even when the man didn’t have a child, and natural circumstances didn’t suggest that he could have one. Many in his day must have ridiculed him each time he introduced himself as Abraham, and written him off as a fool.

 

 

       Also, in Genesis 26, the Bible recounts a remarkable story of how, in a time of severe famine in Gerar, God instructed Isaac to stay in the land. The Bible recalls that “…Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him. And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.” This happened in a time of famine; Isaac prospered, made progress and became very great, just because he followed God’s instruction.

 

 

        God doesn’t see the way men see or hear like they hear. He reasons differently. His Word or instructions to you may not make natural sense, but that’s because He doesn’t relate from the natural realm. Maybe like Isaac, you found yourself in a place of scarcity and dryness; the economy is down, and your finances have gone under. God wants you to know that you can still prosper where you are. Or maybe you’ve been battling with sickness in your body; His reasoning is that you’re the healed and not the sick. Accept this truth, and keep confessing your healing.

 

 

         Perhaps, as it was with Abraham, you’ve experienced severe difficulties having children; the doctors have even said it’s impossible! God’s reasoning or opinion concerning the matter is that you’re not barren: “There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land…” (Exodus 23:26). Meditate on this truth, and like Abraham, believe in the God who quickens the dead, and start calling those things that be not as though they were.

 

 

         Let your reasoning be in sync with God’s way of thinking; there’re no impossibilities or limitations with God. That’s the same mindset He wants you to have today, and always.

 

 

 

 

Confession

 

I have the mindset of the Word. I refuse to see limitations or impossibilities, for God’s Word has inspired faith in me to be possibility conscious, and to reason like Him! I’m of quick understanding and do not judge by what I see nor reprove after the hearing of the ears.
