“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.“
I am having trouble making the point I want to make without sounding boastful or condescending. I have a high IQ. That it’s a statement of fact, not a boast. I can thank God and genetics for it. I personally had nothing to do with its development. But the truth of the matter is, sometimes I realize I am the smartest person in the room. And even more exciting to me is when I realized I’m not the smartest person in the room. However I know that, with God, I am never the smartest person in the room. Indeed, whoever the smartest person who ever lived was, they were an imbecile compared to the wisdom of God. God sees from beginning to end while we see only a fraction of the whole picture. Every new and exciting discovery that Humanity makes, was already known to God.
Pray with me. Creator God, Master watchmaker, who set the universe in motion, who from nothingness brought forth everything, the seen and the unseen, forgive us our hubris when we choose to pit our will against yours. Set us on your path and be our constant guide. Amen.
