The greatest thing I’ve ever learned…
When God says “no”, it’s because He’s trying to protect me from pain, from damage, from bad memories, or from selling out for a cheap fix.
When God says “no”, it’s because there is something better.
Sometimes that means waiting. Waiting. And more waiting. For His best. Not giving in to something cheap.
But we must not forget that there is nothing we can do to lose His love. He forgives. He can redeem anything. He can take anything. ANYTHING and turn something in it for good.
He’s a father. A perfect father. And good fathers always want the BEST for their kids. Not a cheap imitation that will leave their children feeling broken, empty, used…
Think on it. Rest in it. Ask Him if there is something that you are selling out on. Are you accepting a cheap imitation rather than waiting for the best? Sometimes the imitation doesn’t look like an imitation. It can look like the real thing… for a while.
And if you are waiting… Hang in there. God is near. And the best is ALWAYS worth the wait.
