Jubilee Church gathered to offer the first Wednesday Service in February. The sermon was preached from Ecclesiastes 5:2 and Isaiah 55:8-9 titled, “As the heavens are higher than the earth.”
Pastor Isabel Yoo said, “In Ecclesiastes, it says that we have to listen to the Word of God. Don’t be quick to speak to God, but we need to listen to the Word of God a lot. Knowing that God is in heaven and you are on earth and we live in time is the wisdom of life, and we need to seek the things from above.”
As we live our lives, it is very important to think vertically. The passage in Isaiah says, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” We need to live following the noble way and the higher dimension of God. When we are confined in humanistic thoughts, we can’t do anything. But we need to have the faith that God is opening the new path.
From the human viewpoint, Joseph’s life seems like a failure, but he reversed it and he confessed that God turned the evil into good, and he forgave the brothers. There are no failures in God. God has a power to change all kinds of evil into good. God’s guidance is so big, and if we can have the vertical mentality instead of confining in a horizontal way, we can fulfill everything.
The prophet Isaiah says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.” If there are any things making us suffer and blocking our life, then look at the heaven and we must remember this message and always remember that God is in a higher place and God will give the wisdom and He will open the way.
