My ways are indeed higher than yours, although you have more access to My Mind and heart than those in the Old Testament. Pentecost opened up access to the Holy Spirit in ways the Old Testament saints only dreamed about. But never forget that I can see everything seeable, and I know everything knowable; you do not. When you realize this, and choose to trust My timing and actions in your life, it pleases Me. That is faith, and that is the thing without which it is impossible to be pleasing to Me. When you are faithless, I am displeased not because I am angry and vengeful because of your faithlessness, but because faith is the only mechanism whereby you can receive many of the things I have for you. And when you joyfully and willingly receive blessings from Me, I am pleased, for it is My good pleasure to give you the kingdom. When you do not have faith, I am grieved because I know what you're missing, even though you do not. You muddle on, unaware of the glory and blessing that is available via the act of faith. So when you understand that My thoughts are above yours, and when you understand that I love you passionately, it is much easier to trust that I am doing things in your life in the right sequence and at the right times, to maximize the blessings and anointing and favor on your life. As you seek Me, your faith will grow as an automatic side-effect of knowing Me better. Do not seek faith. Seek Me, and your faith will increase.
