When God says “No”

Sometimes, our wants are not aligned with His wants for us. Nonetheless, we settle for the first thing we find or the most convenient solution in fear of nothing getting another chance. We’re afraid that that’s about how good things can get and that we won’t get anything more.

This fear is what holds us back. With fear comes doubt and frustration and when they creep in, evil takes root in our lives. When we’re anxious and afraid, we tend to lose sight of the big picture and cower in the dark. Many people today live with a blessing less than God’s best because they settle. They allowed fear to paralyze them instead of letting God’s boundless blessing, overflowing love and endless grace fill their lives.

Fortunately, God is bigger than our fear. Instead, we need to remember that He created us with a purpose. He won’t give His child just any random thing along the road. He’d make sure that a specific gift was carefully crafted and made specially for you. He’d want to make sure that it’s the best of the best and the best you can get. He’d ensure that it’s suitable for you and it’d enable you to glorify His name. When he refuses something or takes something away, it’s because He’s preparing to give you something better and new. Hence, when he says no, don’t throw a tantrum, scramble back into it and refuse letting go. He has bigger blessings planned for you. Thank Him.
