Scripture at Sunrise 03.10.2021

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” -Isaiah 55:8-9

Do not bring before God stinted petitions and narrow desires, but remember, as high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are His ways above your ways and His thoughts above your thoughts. Ask, therefore, for great things, for you are before a great throne. —Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 01.04.2021

“saying, ‘Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but Yours, be done.'” -Luke 22:42

Sometimes God answers our prayers even when He knows it is not what is best for us. Hezekiah prayed for 15 more years of life, but they ended up being the worst years of his life.

Hezekiah wanted his own will. We need to learn “Not my will but Yours be done.”
