I Don't Think the Way You Think
Updated: Apr 6
“I don’t think the way you think.
The way you work isn’t the way I work.”
“For as the sky soars high above earth,
so the way I work surpasses the way you work,
and the way I think is beyond the way you think.
Just as rain and snow descend from the skies
and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth,
Doing their work of making things grow and blossom,
producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry,
So will the words that come out of my mouth
not come back empty-handed.
They’ll do the work I sent them to do,
they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.
“So you’ll go out in joy,
you’ll be led into a whole and complete life.
(The Message Isaiah 55:8-11)
MEDITATION: Whew! Aren't you glad that God does not think the way we think? We would all be in trouble if he thought like us. His work surpasses our work. His thoughts go beyond our puny little thoughts. God says, "So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me void (useless, without result), Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:8-11 AMP."
God Promises a Return on Investment
In other words, every word that God has spoken will come to pass. As believers, it is our responsibility to speak and confess God's word over our lives, our problems, our issues, our finances, our families, our purpose, and the list goes on. Why? Because God has guaranteed us that His word shall prosper in our lives. His word will not return to Him void, useless, and without a result. God promises a ROI (return on investment). Stock markets will fail us. People will fail us. Jobs will fail us, but Almighty God has promised us that when we stand on His word, the word will never fail us.
God does not Swim with the Masses
For example, nine-hundred ninety-nine people may take the blue pill but God says take the red pill. The blue pill swallowed by the blue fish rely on the comfort of things remaining the same but the red pill swallowed by the orange fish, flows in God's stream of conscientiousness. God's way is always against the stream. You will always know when it's God because He does not swim with the masses. Choose God's way and flow in streams of prosperity knowing that His word will bring a return on investment.
So, grab hold to God's word, His promises, and begin to speak life in your situation today. Do things God's way and it won't be useless or without result.
