Blessings to you as you prepare for the week ahead!
When the Answer is No
- Excerpt from Hugs, Daily Inspirations for Women
Speak, for your servant is listening. - 1 Samuel 3:10
God answers our prayers. What God does not do is this: He does not always answer our prayers as soon as we might like, and He does not always answer our prayers by saying yes.
God isn’t an order taker, and He’s not some sort of cosmic vending machine. Sometimes - even when we want something very badly - our loving heavenly Father responds to our requests by saying no - and we must accept His answer, even if we don’t understand it.
God answers prayers not only according to our wishes but also according to His master plan. We cannot know that plan, but we can know the Planner. And we must trust His wisdom, His righteousness, and His love - always.
“Let’s never forget that some of God’s greatest mercies are His refusals. He says no in order that He may, in some way we cannot imagine, say yes. All His ways with us are merciful. His meaning is always love” - Elisabeth Elliot
