Micah 4:12 ” But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord; they do not understand His plan, He Who gathers them like sheaves to the threshing floor.”

We may think we know the mind of God, but we’re only kidding ourselves. God reminds us of this all the time. “My thoughts aren’t your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways.” (Isaiah 55:8) or “Who knows the mind of the Lord?” ( Isaiah 40:13) We humans perceive things through our senses…but our senses can’t accurately ensure that we truly understand the mind of God. So instead, we superimpose human emotions onto our vision of God in order to perceive Him a little better. But just when we think we have God’s plan and purpose for us pigeon-holed and neatly tied up in a bow…something happens that we didn’t see coming. And we’re left confused, frustrated, and even miffed at God for changing our plans. But God’s Will -His plan and purpose for our life – is far beyond our comprehension, and what we see as His goal for us isn’t nearly as important to Him as the process He takes us through towards that goal.
