Isaiah 55:8-9 says this:
8For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. AMP
Many people have used this verse as an excuse for not understanding the Word of God. God is NOT saying in these verses that we can't understand His Word, but that His Word, His Ways and His thoughts are far above those of the world! They will NOT just magically open up to us. We CAN know them, but it requires diligence and persistence! How much do YOU want to know Him? Paul, in Philippians 3, tells us that he made it his "determined purpose"(AMP) to know HIM! I hope that it is yours, too! Hosea 6:3a tells us this:
3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: KJV
Make it YOUR determined purpose to know Him, and you will! Remember that Jesus said this to His disciples in Luke 8:10:
10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. KJV
If the disciples who were not yet born again and did not yet have the Holy Spirit living in them were told that it was for them to know the secret things of God, how much more is it given to us! What a priceless privilege we have as born again believers in Jesus of Nazareth! Don't treat that lightly! Follow on to know Him and you will! Amen! Here is Hillsong United with "To Know Your Name":
Shalom in Him!
