For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says 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).
God and man don’t see eye to eye. As a matter of fact, the ways of God divide households because one person lives by the law of the Lord, and the others don’t.
“Think not that I came to send peace on the earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be of his own household” (Matthew 10:34-36).
This isn’t said to alienate men from God, but to establish a point. The point is, no one can have a relationship with God if they don’t see things God’s way (Matt 10:38). All will die and after death, the Judgment (Hebrews 9:27.).
Submitting to the word of God is the way men will be able to stand before God and see Him in peace (Hebrews 5:9; Matthew 11:28-30; 1 Peter 4:19).
