Sunday Word: Trust God’s No

Today is Sunday. I know one of the toughest things to do is not accept things that is not meant for us. We will pray to God and ask Him to lead us into the right direction. But once God do the very thing we been praying for, we tend to be resentful.

We been praying to God to show us if he or she is our husband or wife. The moment God reveal that she or he isn’t the one, we become angry. Blame God for revealing what we already know deep down. It is hard to really accept the honest truth.

For me, I knew I needed to stop being mad at God for answering my prayers. How can I be mad for asking God to reveal things to me if I asked? Sometimes we ask but not truly ready for what the truth really is.

When God says no, it is really God’s way of protecting us from things that is not good for us. It does not mean it is dangerous or life threatening. His no simply means this plan is not a dangerous plan but this path is not going to be good for you.

Sometimes we think when God says no, it is because we are going to be in danger or this person will abuse us or hurt us. That happens but sometimes God will say no to some good people. We will think “why him or her, they are really good people?” But God will reveal that though this person is a good person, they will not fit in our lives.

I had to take a good look at myself and remember that I am asking God to lead my path. God will no steer us in the wrong direction. That can be hard to comprehend when we are letting go of someone who we thought would make it to our future.

Here are some Bible Scriptures to reassure you that trusting God is worth it:

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”

Psalm 9:10

Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

Psalm 84:12

LORD Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.

John 14:1

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. (Jesus is talking to his disciples.)

Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

These are some of many scriptures you can turn to when you feeling like you are not trusting God’s no. His no is not to harm us but to protect us and to lead us to a better future.

What bible verse do you go to when you need a refresher on trusting God? Have you learned to trust God’s plan in your life?
