When God says No…

By:  Kathy Roberts
Instead of focusing on the No and ALL the why’s and the disappointment that lies within it, I long to change my mind to focus on the “Know” of God.
Not That He says No, but HE knows me-
HE knows what is best for me.
HE knows what HE’s  protecting me from.
HE knows what I can handle and what I can’t.
HE knows what will bring glory to HIS name and intimacy with The Lord of lords and King of Kings or what will stumble me back into my own fleshly selfishness .
He knows me from the inside out.
Why should I ask for something He knows is not best for me? Truly it’s because of His love for me and ALL mankind that He says NO…
He knows!!!
O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!
Psalm 139:1-6
