“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).

If God’s thoughts and ways are over us, then we can be certain that his thoughts and ways will sufficiently provide for the needs of those committed to following after him and the fulfillment of his purposes. His provision, however, cannot be understood or acknowledged in terms of what brings our satisfaction and aligns with our preferences. God provided manna from heaven, but the people still grumbled. While God gave them a Land of Promise, its occupation would come about not by a casual stroll through a rose garden, but rather, hard fought and costly battles. His provision is for the fulfillment of his purposes, not our fickle tastes.
