My thoughts are not your thoughts and my ways are not your ways, declares the Lord-Isaiah 55:8 NIV
What if God was one of us was surprisingly a one hit wonder for Joan Osbourn in 1995. I have to admit that the lyrics of that song have definitely set my tongue into motion a time or two. Since this song was a hit I'm pretty sure that the remnants of it have not only tattooed a permanent mark on my brain but that of yours too.
Can you even imagine what life would really be like if God was indeed like you and I? If God thought like us there would be a lack of concern shown; if God talked like us there would be harsh words thrown out carelessly and if God acted liked us there would be a rapid release of anger spilling out on everything. Of course all those qualities are that of the complete opposite of how God really is (The Lord is gracious, compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love- Psalm 145:8).
The LORD says: Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, my thoughts and ways are higher than yours-Isaiah 55:8 CEV
