Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will act. – Psalm 37: 4-5 ESV
In 2014, Michelle Williams released a song titled “When Jesus Says Yes”. Everyone was excited to declare “when Jesus says yes, nobody can say no”. But, what happens when Jesus says no? Psalm 37:4 tell us that God will give us the desires of our heart, but verse five goes on to say we must commit our way to the Lord, trust Him and He will act. If our desire doesn’t line up with His will, Jesus may very well say no.
There are three things we must do when Jesus says no. First, we must accept the answer. Sometimes no is the blessing that will propel us into our destiny. Second, we must pray for His will. We must trust Him and know that His will is what’s best for us. Last, when His will is revealed; walk in it. When we walk the path He has made for us His purpose will be fulfilled. So, I encourage you today to keep the faith when Jesus says no. Your “yes” may be around the corner.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for answering my prayers, even when the answer is no. Help me to release my desires to You and walk in Your will and purpose for my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When has Jesus’ “no” been a blessing in your life?
