The Best is yet to come!
God has great things in store for your life, if you allow Him in. Sometimes God will block certain opportunities from coming your way because He has something better in mind for you. God will block “bad things” from happening to you, but you may not realize this in the beginning. We must understand that God tries to save us from ourselves. God wants to ensure that no harm comes to us. God will allow certain things to happen to us to teach us a valuable lesson. When God says “no” to our prayer request, He knows the timing is not right for “yes”, and knows that something better is coming along.
Psalm 84:5, “Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.” Psalm 84:11, “The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.”
We must learn to say “thank you” to God for the “no” answers because God has blocked something that wasn’t good for us. We must learn to trust God and put our faith in knowing that God always has our best interest at heart. In order to save us from ourselves, God is not afraid to interrupt our lives or allow us to suffer a little. The main reason for God allowing us to suffer a little is that God loves us too much to allow us to drown in something we thought was good for us.
God has to say “no” sometimes because He knows what is best for us and has something better in store for us!
