GOD SAYS NO WHEN HE HAS A BETTER PLAN
Often God wants to fulfill your desire -but in a different way
In his infinite wisdom, he has a BETTER IDEA
ISA.55:8-9 God: “This plan of mine is not what you would work out, neither are My thoughts the same as yours! For My ways are higher than yours.” God has more than one way of doing things! Unlike you, His options are unlimited! - there are many alternatives – He is never forced to answer in only 1 way!
Example: If you are deep in debt – financially stressed
God can answer in many different ways
- many ways to increase your income
- many ways to decrease your expenses (spend less)
PROBLEM: We want God to answer in our preferred way.
We want to prescribe not only WHAT but HOW He answers
