The thinking of mankind is not on the same plane as divine thought. In that truth Christians can take great comfort, for Scripture states concerning God … "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” (Isa 55:8-9 NIV).
