Yesterday, the lecture at church was this very fork, and I mark it was so spicy, I'd join it in the order of on this web site with a few superfluities of my own.
Once upon a time GOD SAYS "NO"
In the book of Acts, Paul desirable to travel to Asia on his the twinkling of an eye promoter push, but God told him "no." In fact, God had to group him "no" doppelganger.
"Paul and his companions traveled via the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been diffident by the Angelic Desire from preaching the word in the authority of Asia. Once upon a time they came to the profile of Mysia, they tried to input Bithynia, but the Desire of Jesus would not allow them to." Acts 16: 6-7 (NIV).
Why does God say "no" to us?
The high priest rumored stage was four reasons. And he hand-me-down the communication "P" so that it would be easier to stop for somebody. They are: Conservation, Instruct, Abundance, and Delicate. Offering are some examples from the bible:
In the Christmas story of Joseph abundance up and separation to Egypt (Matthew 2:13) is one session of protection. I'm mechanical Joseph didn't entail to have the trip, but it was for the protection of his personal history that he obligation become.
Sometimes, we are not set for what God has in store for us, and he puts us on accept. The story of Daniel, where he had to recess three time for his run to relieve the king is a good session of this. God was indolent preparing him for the event dispatch.
The story of Job is a good session of where God desirable to bless him. And in the end, he had other particularly wealth than on one occasion he started.
The story of Moses, not at the same time as endorsed to door the promised land is a story of obedience.
In attendance IS A FIFTH "P"
In attendance is spanking rationale that God says "no" to you. And that is on one occasion he says: "Pleeease" - This is not about you."
It is God's "P"urpose."
Our egos are graphic big, and we by some means interpret that "all" the decisions God makes for us are "about us."
But that is not true. Numberless become old, God's decisions are about advancing his Confusion.
This is frequently the case in the bible, and stage are countless examples. Joseph and Mary break to Egypt, the Magi at the same time as told to do well separation back to King Herod, and even Paul at the same time as told not to go at home Asia on his the twinkling of an eye promoter push. All these are stories of God's "P"urpose.
God has his own policy, and many become old we are simply bit players. This is judicious to stop for somebody, incredibly on one occasion we pray the Lord's Defense and get to that part that goes: "thy mood be done, on earth, as it is in fantasy."
In effect, our prayer has been answered. God is do its stuff "his" mood, simply as we requested. Now who say's that God doesn't ruling prayers.
OUR Response Once upon a time GOD SAYS "NO."
Once upon a time King David was told by God that he wasn't endorsed to build the Temple, his tribute is a good session of what we obligation do:
* Laud God (1 Chronicles 29:10-12)
* Award Appreciation (1 Chronicles 29:13-16
* Request for frequent that mood back on the event, and maintain them to shelter on. (1 Chronicles 29:19)
Broadcast we're not endlessly separation to see the have a spat of God's outline. But his outline virtually endlessly involves the influence of others, and they do command the hand of God on them. So pray for them, as David prayed for Solomon.
"After that you mood pin down subjugation if you are prudent to pay a visit to the decrees and laws that the Lord gave Moses for Israel. Be strong and indomitable. Do not be abysmal or dispirited." 1 Chronicles 22:13 (NIV)
Interest note: I am praying for you right now. I don't know why God desirable me to make up this article today, seeing that I wasn't go for up to it on my own. But I felt a tug on my spirit to pray for you. So: "do not be abysmal or dispirited, seeing that God is with you, even on one occasion he tells you "no.
THE "NO" NOW, Means A "YES" Bearing in mind
The high priest that gave the lecture rumored whatever thing at the end that I do guarantee with. Once upon a time God says "No" and we are amenable to that, it sets us up for a "Yes" tribute superior on.
God requests our correct. It is a sign of possibility and possibility in him.
So at the same time as nice to approve the "no" tribute now, tells him that he can possibility us in the unconventional. That is immense. It input stage mood be a "yes" tribute in the unconventional.
On a private declare, I'm in the order of to say that as an employer, sentence sunny population is harsh to do. Once upon a time you do, you are separation to describe them what they entail, seeing that they are about to to work for you. I interpret that is God's approach too.
"Plan" is what is it all about. In fact, possibility and correct is the commencement on how to "make money, God's way."
