Some more Provoking Thoughts to consider, or as the Psalmist writes, Selah.

Ezekiel 33:17 "Yet the children of Thy people say, the way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal." Equal, meaning that God's ways don't measure true, nor are they balanced.

Saying the way God figures things, He just misses the mark of the way I see things. Then is Isa. 55 ;8-9 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways MY ways, saith 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." I believe the Lord is telling mankind that He views things different than we do.  I'm sure that there have been times that everyone differs from the way God allows things to happen.  When a righteous person's life is cut off in the prime of their years, and a wicked one lives to an old age, for example. You hear people saying things, like, why did God allow this or that happen? All the time we're implying that we would handle the situation in a different manner.

Wonder, could it be that we reason often, that this life is the best one and the longer we get to enjoy this world and the things we acquire, and love our families, the better off we are? Reckon we value this world higher in priority and importance than the heavenly one? Do you hear many around you these days that are wanting to leave this old world and go to Heaven? Might be that God gives spiritual things top priority, and we, living in this fleshly body, make pleasing the desires of the body first place in our lives. Dying and going to heaven is the last thing desired today. Just might be that our ways are not equal, nor do we reason on the same level as the Lord.
