“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says 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.”
We humans tend to make God in our own image. If we would react in a certain way, we assume God would think and act in a similar way. But here God reminds us that He exists and thinks on a much different level. Human reasoning can’t grasp the thought processes of God.
As the apostle Paul explained, the things of God “are spiritually discerned” through the gift of God’s Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:14). For more about how we can learn to think as God does, see the article “Christ in Us: How Does He Live in You?”
