God's Way

Thursdays - Dawn's Devotions for Writers

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


Sometimes it’s hard to let go of the reins, isn’t it?

We have dreams—goals—desires. We want to control the outcome of our labor. We want to choose who, what, when, and how.

We pray and ask God to bless “our” plans . . .

But Isaiah reminds us that God doesn’t work the way we work – and He doesn’t think the way we think. His work surpasses ours, and His thoughts are beyond the way we think.

He cares about you. He cares about your hopes and dreams, whether it be for a particular agent to show interest, a contract with a certain publishing house, or for your writing to make an impact.

But rather than pray for God to bless your plans, ask Him to show you His. They’re already blessed. He has a personal plan and a specific destination for you.

And it may be far greater than what you can imagine.

Dawn
