God's help can come from unexpected sources

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 May 2024

Isaiah 49:16
‘See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…’

You just never know who God will use and what He will use to bring help and relief to your situation.

Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

My ways are not your ways, says the Lord. We should not prescribe to God how and where that help should come from.  Sometimes when we are in a situation, we want to make our problem someone else’s problem. My employer must solve this, or my husband must solve this, or my parents must solve this, or my children must solve this.  My ways are not your ways, says the Lord.
In my own experience I have seen how God will use an unexpected source to come through for my situation.
