God’s Ways are Higher is a book written for the purpose of taking the reader on a journey into deeper realms in God with inspirational teachings that give scriptural insight into the unique and diverse ways of the God of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT).
God’s ways are not easily understood by the human mind, in fact they may appear foolish when human beings try to interpret them with their limited understanding apart from God. However God in His Sovereignty as the All-powerful Creator and Controller of the universe always knows what He is doing. These teachings are inspired by God given revelation from scripture and are either based on case studies of biblical personalities, specific incidents or focus on specific topics with general scriptures that reveal God’s ways founded on His principles.
The inspirational teachings serve to give a clear insight and understanding of God’s ways or wisdom that affirm ageless principles underlying His actions and manner of governing His people and the world in general. They are also written to teach and encourage or exhort the believer in Christ with the hope of helping them in their quest to be renewed daily with a mind of Christ, therefore drawing closer to God through Christ. The apostle Paul in the scripture below explained that it is only those who are spiritual who can receive and have understanding of truths from God’s Spirit. These truths are the ways or thoughts of God. These “spiritual people” as Paul states have the mind of Christ.
“13 When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths. 14 But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. 15 Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things, but they themselves cannot be evaluated by others. 16 For, “Who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him? But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.”(1 Corinth. 2:13-16 NLT).
