Isaiah 55:8-9: “‘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.’”

God is smart. He’s smarter than fast processing computers, smarter than His angels, certainly smarter than a 5th grader….. So what does this make us? Dummies? Not really – it simply means our view point has its limitations. Comparably speaking, flying birds have a higher vantage point and get a wider aerial view than crawling ants do.

God’s bird eye perspective is bound to view things a little differently from us. Naturally, His thought process is above our heads, which can be very frustrating at times. Let’s be honest – God’s uncanny timing is challenging when we’re dealing with all sorts of delays testing our patience to the breaking point.

Remember that God is on the side of all His creation. God simply does not favor one creation over another. Throughout the ages, deep-seated jealousy has had a devastating effect causing friction and pain. God does not love human beings more than His angels (or vice versa), and He certainly does not distinguish between human tribes by preferring one tribe over another. God has a great big heart. Don’t you think His heart is big enough to embrace us all? I certainly think so. I believe there’s plenty of room in His heart for each one of us!

Going through life’s many battles, it is important to realize that God is for us, and He’ll help us especially when we cry out to Him. However, He’ll do it His way. We have to give Him that. A friend of mine has Bob Marley’s song as a ringtone on her phone. Every time her phone rings she is reminded that everything is going to be alright. And it will be with God on our side.

Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!
Rise up this mornin’,
Smiled with the risin’ sun,
Three little birds
Perch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin’, “This is my message to you”    
            Bob Marley
