“And God Said No.”

prayer

And God said, “No”
I asked God to take away my pride. He said, “No, that is not for me to take away but for you to give up.”
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. He said, “No, her spirit is whole, her body is temporary.”
I asked God to grant me patience. He said, “No, patience is a by-product of tribulation, it isn’t granted it is earned.”
I asked God to give me happiness. He said, “No, I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.”
I asked God to spare me pain. He said, “No, suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.”
I asked God to make my spirit grow. He said, “No, you must grow on your own but I will prune you so you will be fruitful.”
I asked God if He loved me. He said, “Yes, now and forever…that is why I say no so often.”
I asked God to help me love others as much as He loves me. He said, “Ah, finally you have the idea.”

God always answers but keep in mind, “God listens to thoe who hear and hears those who answer.”

3 simple short ways he answers,

  • No (He knows what is best and some time doesn’t give us a yes)
  • Slow (It is in His perfect timing, not ours)
  • Go! (sometimes He does say yes and tells us we need to move and go along with His plans).
  • ALSO REMEMBER IN ALL THIS…We may be asking questions that God can not answer. For an explaination go to: https://tombeetlebailey.wordpress.com/2018/10/02/questions-god-cant-answer/
