Bible: Isaiah 55:8-11

55:8Indeed, 1  my plans 2  are not like 3  your plans,

and my deeds 4  are not like 5  your deeds,

55:9 for just as the sky 6  is higher than the earth,

so my deeds 7  are superior to 8  your deeds

and my plans 9  superior to your plans.

55:10 10 

The rain and snow fall from the sky

and do not return,

but instead water the earth

and make it produce and yield crops,

and provide seed for the planter and food for those who must eat.

55:11 In the same way, the promise that I make

does not return to me, having accomplished nothing. 11 

No, it is realized as I desire

and is fulfilled as I intend.” 12
