God does not think like you
Isaiah 55:6,7,8 - Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
The Lord is talking to some of you today to change your ways not according to what you feel is good but according to what is written in the Word of God. For in the Word of God is the ways of the Lord.
Understand this very, very clearly; every word in the Bible is from the Holy Spirit although it is written by man. There is no doubt about any scripture or even a word in the scriptures not being divine. It has been proved at many intellectual levels and over the ages.
For example Jesus being the Saviour has 300+ prophesies in the Old Testament and almost all are fulfiled in Him (only ones of his coming back again are left). Even 8 of them coming true in any man is like 1 in 10 raised to the power of 28.
Therefore every scripture should be followed without doubt but with understanding. And anything you are doing or following, even if you feel it has much good, you need to abandon them and change your ways unto the ways of the Lord.
God is not man to think like man, so just surrender yourself to the ways of the Lord and He will have mercy on you and forgive you for all you have done.
I can stand testimony to this, for when I did not know the Lord I too did lot of rubbish, but now that I changed my ways unto to the Lord I have been forgiven and blessed. I speak in not just words but the Lord being with me is manifested even unto the people around me to see.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You are a merciful God. You forgive your children when they change their hearts and turn back unto You. Lord we ask forgiveness for all that we have done, contradictory to your Word. Open out your Arms unto us and keep us under your wings, bless us and empower us to testify You unto others...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
