Mid Week Devotional With Chris Chase
"How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!" (Hebrews 11:33) I was reminded this morning by Pastor Charles Swindoll how God's ways are so very different from the world's ways. A few examples are: God exalts the humble. The world exalts the proud. God ascribes greatness not to masters, but to servants. God is impressed not with wealth, size, or noise, but with quiet things done in secret -- the inner motives, the true condition of the heart. God sends away the arrogant and the rich empty handed, but He gathers to Himself the lowly, the broken, the prisoner, the prostitute, the repentant. The world honors the handsome, the gifted, and the brilliant. God smiles on the crippled, the ones who can't keep up. All this makes the world nervous!
