Devotion on Trust: God Thinks Big!
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,"declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9
"I heard a rumor that Arnold Palmer was once asked by a Saudi king to come and play golf with him. Palmer wasn't sure if he should go, but his friends convinced him. As he was playing the king told him he wanted to give him a gift for coming to play with him. Palmer declined, but the king was persistent. Palmer said he could give him a golf club. The king said he would send it to him. After returning home Palmer got to wondering what the club would look like. Solid gold? Diamond studded? The package arrived, but it was not the size of a golf club. Palmer opened it and found the keys and a deed to a golf club (resort)." (http://www.snopes.com) One man's "thinking big" was a solid gold club or diamond studded club. This had no comparison to the deed to an actual golf club! That's how it is with God. We cannot fathom the richness and depth of His creativity. No need to "help" God solve problems. If we could "figure" it out or control outcomes it would be a pretty tiny God, don't you think? It's usually not until we lay our problems at His feet that the answer become complete. Let go and trust Him! ~Nicole
