When God Says No


 

40 Days of Prayer – Part 7

“Call to me and I will answer you...” Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)

3 OF THE MANY REASONS GOD SAYS ‘NO’


CAUTION: Use these to comfort yourself, but NEVER use them with someone in pain, because you don’t know why God said no to them.


1. GOD SAYS ‘NO’ WHEN HE HAS A BIGGER PERSPECTIVE



2. GOD SAYS ‘NO’ WHEN HE HAS A BETTER PLAN


Isaiah 55:8-9 (LB)

Hebrews 11:39-40 (NIV)

GOD HAS ALL OF ETERNITY TO FULFILL HIS PROMISES


3. GOD SAYS ‘NO’ WHEN HE HAS A GREATER PURPOSE


“I cry out to God Most High, who fulfills his purpose for me.”

Psalm 57:2 (NIV)

“There are some things the Lord our God has kept secret, but there are some things he has let us know.” Deuteronomy 29:29 (NCV)


“Just as you’ll never understand how the mystery of life forms in a pregnant woman, so you’ll never understand the mystery at work in all that God does.” Ecclesiastes 11:5 (MSG)

WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN GOD SAYS ‘NO’?

1. TRUST THAT GOD DOES EVERYTHING IN GOODNESS & LOVE


Romans 8:28 (ICB)

I DON’T HAVE TO UNDERSTAND GOD’S ANSWER TO KNOW THAT IT IS MOTIVATED BY LOVE.

2. WHEN IN PAIN, PRAY WHAT JESUS PRAYED FACING THE CROSS


THE RIGHT WAY TO PRAY

“Father, I know you can do anything!”

  • ASK WITH PASSION!

“Father, please give me what I ask!”

  • ACCEPT GOD’S PLAN!

“However, what I want most is your will!”

3. EXPECT GOD TO GIVE HIS GRACE TO HANDLE HIS ANSWER
