How many times have you been frustrated or disappointed when God says “No” to you? When those doors that you desperately want to enter but He seems to refuse to open.
None of us like it when God uses the ‘N-Word, WHEN GOD USES THE ‘N-WORD’……but we have to accept it.
But, if we stop and think about it, while we’re so focused on what WE want to do, many times people are ‘bugging’ us to do things in which we have no interest. A project…a task…a favor…an opportunity that we didn’t ask for. Many times we say…
“I don’t have time for that!” or,
“I don’t know how to do that!” or,
How about This? “That’s not in my job description!”
Could God be sending those unwanted ‘opportunities’ to us to set us up for a greater purpose…His purpose?
Something greater than us or what we want? Why is God saying, “Yes” to something I don’t want?
Think for a moment that Abraham, Noah, Moses, David, Joseph or any of the apostles asked or applied for their assignments. In fact both Moses (Exodus 4:7) and Paul (2 Corinthians 11:6) were NOT gifted speakers, but the core of what God said, “Yes” to in their lives involved speaking and writing.
Stop for a moment and think about what’s being requested of you right now. Is that God saying, “Yes”?
Don’t be so quick to say “No”, when you get unsolicited requests. Pray about it. Measure it against God’s word. Pray for discernment.
You may be saying, “No” to the next move in your purpose.
