I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.
The Lord is close to all who call on Him, YES, to all who call on Him sincerely.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cries for help and rescues them.
It’s difficult to accept God’s will when His answer is “No!” However, we must NOT interpret HIS response of “No!” as a prayer unanswered. If we are living in God’s will, we are insulting Him if we ignore His “NO!”
The Lord says “No” at times, because His “Yes” is better for our lives. He may not allow the miracle we are yearning for to take place, but the true miracle is how He is able to transform our desires to fit what His best plan provides.
He hears us when we call on Him. If we pray for discernment in a particular area of our life, and if we are obedient to follow His lead, we can be confident that He won’t let us down. It’s crucial that we recognize that His plan will not be thwarted regardless of how things appear in the natural.
If you feel He hasn’t answered you, then continue to pray for His will until His “Wait” or His “Not Now” becomes a “Yes” or “No.” We should be thankful for the “No’s” that He gives us. I cannot imagine where my life would be had He answered “Yes” to all of my personal pleas.
He knows what we need, and it may not always be what we want! Prayer is not an act to convince God to do something our way. The purpose of prayer is to adjust our hearts to His perfect will for us.
A lot of problems stem from a “Yes World”…if it feels good…do it. We must remain true to our Father and focus and pray for an obedient heart so that our feelings don’t orchestrate our actions!
God is never caught off guard, therefore, no surprises interrupt His day! Therefore, we must let God be God….for He never comes up short.
Disturbances in our lives are created due to our human heart and not allowing Him to work through us. So, we must not be discouraged when a door is slammed shut–for the next door just may prove to be more than we could ever hope for or imagine. Door #1, what we are tempted to open, could possibly be a mediocre consolation prize anyway. Should any of us settle for mediocre? Absolutely NOT!
I want His Divine FAVOR…don’t you? We must be patient and recognize that His infinite wisdom allows for all the pieces of our puzzled lives to fit perfectly together!
Pray to accept the LORD’s YES for your life today!
