When God says no

Sometimes God will tell you no, he will decline your prayer request and say “Son, Daughter; my answer is no.” When this happens we are at a crossroads. We can either take offense to God and be angry or we can pursue after the will of God and find peace in his answer.


How do we find peace in the instance of God saying no? I mean, you prayed for God to get you that new job and then God slammed the door shut in your face, how are you supposed to be happy and find peace? We first need to remember that God is God and we are not God and that his ways are above ours. He sees the future, we do not; he lays out the foundations of our life, yet our ways lead to destruction! Why does God have to say yes, if that is the case we are God and he is not. See if your God never disagrees with you then your worshiping yourself.


God sees into the future while we do not, God may see that job leading you into self idol worship while you do not. God may see a different job for you where you get to witness to others yet you do not see this in the future. God says ask and it will be given unto you as long as what you are asking for is within his will. So if God says NO to you; then we are to know that what we prayed for was not in his will. He has something much better for you.


Do not take offense to God when he tells you no. Years ago I wanted to be apart of a youth leadership team. God told me no and to leave that church. I was flabbergasted at this. Come to find out, the youth group turned into petty fights and left God; God wanted to remove me from that situation before it even happened to me. God knows what is best. Put your trust in him and remember God is not your fairy God mother giving you all your wants. He will give you all your NEEDS not wants. He is for you not against you.
