The text is from Micah 4:12: But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
It's a dangerous thing when men seek to justify their actions with, "Oh, I think the Lord understands."
Micah 4:12. But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they His counsel: for He shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
Isaiah 55:9. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
Psalm 14:2-3. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that does good, no, not (a single) one.
Better it is that a man say, Let me understand the Lord!
Psalm 119:27. Make me to understand the way of Your precepts: so shall I talk of Your wondrous works.
Isaiah 55:7-8. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the LORD.
Understand this, O man:
Leave your way for the better way, God's way.
Come to Christ, and you will find mercy (God will not meet out to you your deserved judgment).
Come to Christ and you will find abundant pardon, more than enough to cover all your sins.
What does the Lord understand, O man?
"Come every soul by sin oppressed,
There's mercy with the Lord,
And He will surely give you rest
By trusting in His word." John H. Stockton 1813-1877
