“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9 (NIV)

Before I became a Christian, I held many values and beliefs that I believed to be true. For instance, when it came to marriage, it only made sense for couples to live together first to see if they were really a good match. In college, I would typically wake up late on Sunday. No way would I sacrifice sleep to attend church.

Surrendering to Jesus has transformed my life. It certainly didn’t happen all at once, but over time I can look back and see some amazing changes in the way I think and behave.

In a nutshell, I now believe God’s Word is a roadmap for life. I don’t pretend to have a grasp on all of it, but most of scripture is quite straightforward.

Sadly, many people today believe that much of the Bible is outdated and have chosen “better” ways. Not surprisingly, these “better” ways are not working, and in many cases bringing disastrous results.

God’s ways are definitely higher than our ways! Pick any subject. God knows more than we do!
