Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
That's the way of it, brother! He is the sovereign Lord God Almighty, and he knows what he does. Often it will be a mystery to us, but to trust him is most wise. Faith in Christ involves trusting him in all things. Thanks for quoting the text, it is always edifying and helpful.
I'm greatly looking forward to the Lord's Day tomorrow!

Amen QC, the Lord knows what he does, even when we don't know what he does.
