When the answer to something we pray for, is no, we see it as a negative or rejection. Everything that looks good, or even sounds good, is not always good for us. And just because someone else has something that we want, doesn’t mean it’s meant for us.
Every ‘no’ from God is good, we just have to trust Him. We don’t always know what’s good for us, so why not trust in who does?
God wants us to trust Him with all our heart. If we can trust God when he says yes, why can’t we trust Him when he says no? There’s a blessing in the no.
God knows everything, and what’s best for you. So when He tells you no, trust that it’s for your good, and in due time, you will see that it is.
Trust God’s no.
Ecclesiastes 6:12 (KJV) – for who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
Proverbs 3:5 (KJV) – trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
I John 3:20 (KJV) – for if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
