When The Answer is No – Part 1

One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: “Power belongs to you, God, and with you, Lord, is unfailing love.” (Psalm 62:11-12).

From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings (Psalm 61:2-4).

One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: “Power belongs to you, God, and with you, Lord, is unfailing love.” (Psalm 62:11-12).

Your life is purposed to bring glory to God in and through everything. There are times – hard times – when the answers from Him are “no.” When those times come, we need to choose to trust that He said no for a reason.
    
God is all-knowing. All-powerful. We are not.           

This is not simple, but it is true. When we surrender to His sovereignty, God strengthens His children with all-sufficient grace and His power is made perfect in our weakness.

Dear Lord, Help me to trust You in the challenges and the “nos” that I face today and every day. Shine your glory through my life-cracks today. In Jesus’ name.
