God thoughts

by max lucado

Lord, you have done such great things! How deep are your thoughts!  Psalm 92:5

God’s thoughts are not our thoughts—we aren’t even in the same neighborhood.

Psalm 92:5 sets the standard. “Lord, you have done such great things. How deep are your thoughts.”

When we’re thinking, Preserve the body; God’s thinking, Save the soul. We dream of a pay raise. He dreams of raising the dead. We avoid pain and seek peace. God uses pain to bring peace. “I’m going to live before I die,” we resolve. “Die, so you can live,” he instructs. We love what rusts. He loves what endures. We rejoice at our successes. He rejoices at our confessions. We show our children the Nike star with the million-dollar smile and say, “Be like him.” God points to the crucified carpenter with bloody lips and a torn side and says, “Be like Christ.”
