TOPIC: Even God’s No Is For Your Good

Matthew 6:30-32

He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. Ecclesiastes 3:11

Open Heaven For Teens 21 August 2022 Message

I used to grant all my children’s requests in order to curb covetousness until I realised that as a good mother, I needed to delay the granting of some of their requests so that they could understand that life won’t always give them whatever they ask for.

The same is true with God. When a child or baby Christian asks for anything in prayers, he/she would most likely get it. This is Gods way of drawing him/her closer, but as time goes on, God may start delaying some answers to prayers to teach a vital lesson on faith and being steadfast.

Sometimes, He may not grant the prayer request at all because He knows the end from the beginning. God sees the motive behind every prayer and if it doesnt align with His purpose, He wont give a Yes. A typical example is Paul who, according to 2 Corinthians 12:7-9 , constantly prayed that God would take away a thorn in his flesh but instead, God gave him sufficient grace to manage it.

Another example is Moses who wanted to dodge his divine assignment on the grounds of his stammering. God gave him a helper in Aaron (Exodus 4:10-14 ). God may not always grant all your requests.

Action Point
God may not always say “Yes” but His No is also in your favour.

Bible in One Year
1 Corinthians 3:1-23 , Psalms 119:1-176
