God doesn’t want us to make our decisions based on what is obvious to our human flesh. He wants us to make our decisions based on Him. He wants us to seek His face, His Word, and His ways. When I obeyed the Lord and refused to do what my flesh felt was obvious, I heard Him tell me exactly what He wanted me to do. His will was not the obvious way to my human flesh. His will was the right way because it was His.
Call upon Him while He is near.
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the LORD,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
