Re:Verse passage – 1 Peter 2:18-25 (day four)
God’s ways are certainly not our ways! Sin and the world have taught the exact opposite of God’s instructions here in Scripture. The world teaches us to fight back against what we judge to be inequity. God’s instruction is to keep our eyes upon Him and submit to authority.
All through Scripture, we find Satan saying we should do the opposite of what God says. God said, “Don’t eat the fruit, you’ll die.” Satan said, “you will surely not die.” God says, “Forgive your enemy,” Satan says, “Crush your enemy.” God says, “Humble yourself.” Satan says, “Exalt yourself.” Over and over, Satan perverts God’s message. We have to ask ourselves, “Who will we obey?”
Isaiah 55:8-9 says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways, declares the Lord, For as the heavens are higher that the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
