There’s a Lesson To Be Learned
Sometimes God says “no” because He has something to teach us through the waiting.
There are many examples in the Bible of people who had to wait.
I think of Hannah, David, the nation of Israel (on multiple occasions) and even those of us who wait for the coming of Christ.
Waiting teaches us to trust God regardless of our circumstances. It teaches us to hope in Him in the midst of unfulfilled desires.
It’s Always Worth The Wait
Sometimes God says “no” for reasons we can’t fully comprehend.
We pray and ask for our season of waiting to end and God keeps us there. These are times that call for us to endure and persevere.
We must remember that God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9).
Too often we try to figure God’s purposes out when He wants us to rest in the fact that He is working everything according to His will.
