Whether you are an officer who is new to the faith, a seasoned believer, or unsure of where you are spiritually, it is our desire

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.

|As cops we have to be able to think and reason on many levels. We have to wade through emotionally
charged arguments to determine who the aggressor is on a domestic, think through legal jargon to
determine what laws apply to the call we are on, determine what tactics are best to use on a crime in
progress, and don't forget to stay one step ahead of the lawyer while you're on the stand (watch out
for those leading questions). Cops have to think quickly and accurately, and often solve other people's
problems. Most cops are good at this but as good as we may be at reasoning there is One we can't
compete with. In today's verse God said as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are His ways
and thoughts higher than ours. Just as we can't reach up and touch the Heavens, neither can we reach
God's ways and thoughts. They are infinitely higher than ours and we are completely incapable of
thinking or reasoning on that level.
So what does this mean for us? First of all it should be a wake up call for us to seek His direction for
our lives. Man tends to want to set his own course, and make his own decisions without God's input. The
major problem with that is we often make decisions based on emotion. Will this make me happy? How
will I benefit from this? What are the risks? We rarely know what the consequences are going to be
for our decisions but God does, and He also truly wants what is best for us. What we see as a logical
choice may actually bring hurt and pain later on, or cost us in ways didn't see coming. Think of it like
this; man was able to design a space craft that could go to the moon and back. That was an incredible
accomplishment that required the input of a lot of very intelligent people. Now compare that to God; He
spoke this universe and everything in it into existence. He spoke it into existence!!! He created a planet
that could sustain life, and then created man to live on it. I don't know about you, but that's Who I
want to get direction from.
Let's be careful not to go through life making decisions based solely on what feels right, or seems
logical; but instead let's consult God in prayer and look into His Word for direction.
