Sometimes When The Answer is NO!
There are times when God chooses not to tell us the reason for His answer; and expects us to trust His mercy and wisdom.
The secret things belong unto the Lord our God; but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of His law.
Sometimes God says no, and He often does not explain to us why; He chooses not to answer our prayers. It is still Biblical and we must accept it.
It is easy for us to get so faith minded that we get legalistic. Letís give God some room to operate.
Sometimes God withholds the answer from you because He thinks you are not ready to handle it. If God thinks there is something you canít handle, do not push it. Trust His wisdom and judgment, not your own understanding. Itís the glory of God to conceal a thing.
Sometimes you need to leave well enough alone. Donít let unanswered prayer stop you from serving Him. There are times when God chooses not to tell us the reason for His answer and expects us to trust His mercy and wisdom. If we ask the reason and God decides it is none of our business, then we need to leave it alone and trust Godís judgment.
Sometimes God will not tell us why he Has refused our request; because He is trying to give us rest from the problems of life.
Sometimes in our lives God will give us little shade from the bright sun of our trials for a reason. If God chooses to do that for us, we should accept it gratefully and trust Him to do what is best for us; and to bring un into His rest.
As sheep trust their shepherd to totally care for them, so God wants you to trust Him; as your shepherd, He makes sure that you do not lack any good thing.
He leads you to pasture beside the still waters; and restores your soul. He heals your emotions, your broken heart, your broken life, and restores your dreams.
When you pass through the valley of the shadow of death, you will not be afraid because He is with you.
You are not alone and will never be alone.
His presence drives away all fears. When I was first born again, I had a vision of a dirty cluttered alley where drug addicts hung out.
I remember an overwhelming fear cloaked the place, but I was unafraid; as I shared Christ with those people.
As the word of God went into the valley the addicts dropped their needles and syringes and began to change. They all were freed from their addiction.
When we are sinful, in Christ, we are made righteous.
When we are weak, in Christ we are made strong.
When we are weary, in Christ we are made glad.
Heís my Sheppard, my Savior, my healer, my baptism, my prosperity, my elder, my brother, my friend, the only one who really understands.
You touch God when you trust Him Ė and stand in faith. God cannot deny your faith in Him.
Record of study.
