Higher Than Our Ways | Isaiah 55:9 | March 11, 2022

When we feel lost, God sees a clear path. Have you ever been lost, really lost? Maybe you were driving in a new city or hiking in the woods. Either way, you didn’t know where to go next. You had lost the path. Has this ever happened in life? Have you ever said, “Why God?” Whenever we are lost driving or lost in life, one thing is true. If we could only get high enough, we could see the whole picture. We wouldn’t be confused and we would see exactly where we needed to go. Our One Verse today teaches us that God’s ways are higher than our ways. As high as the heavens are from the Earth, God sees the whole picture. Trust in Him to guide you down the right path.
