Enjoy the Ride

Isaiah 55:9

For as heaven is higher than earth, so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.

We’ve often heard the saying, “God works in mysterious ways.” Many people mistake the saying as a Scriptural quote, but the Bible doesn’t actually state that God works in mysterious ways. The saying does, however, resemble this verse. We don’t always understand what God is doing in our lives, and we have to trust that He is in control and working things together for our good and His glory.

This earth is temporal, and the life we have here is short in comparison to eternity. Heaven is much higher, and we should focus on accumulating heavenly treasures instead of earthly treasures, according to Matthew 6:19. In the same sense, God’s ways are higher than our ways. The work He is doing in our lives is for eternity, and we may not understand it in the backdrop of this temporary framework in which we live. We have a destiny. God is taking us somewhere, and He may do things we don’t understand in order to get us where we need to be.

Our thoughts are confined to the things we know and understand. We can only make assumptions and ask questions beyond that. God, however, knows the beginning from the end and everything that happens in between. He is the informed party, and He is in control. Trust Him.

If you are uncomfortable in your current circumstances, consider yourself blessed. If He has forced you into an uncomfortable or uncertain situation, He is taking you somewhere that has purpose. If you try to fight it and remain in your comfort zone, you will become stagnant in your mediocrity. Like a roller coaster at an amusement park, you need to just hang on and enjoy the ride because it won’t last long. Life is lived between destinations, and you don’t want to miss any of it.

Have a blessed day!
