GOD SAYS NO WHEN HE HAS A GREATER PURPOSE
God will never let your prayer interfere with your purpose!PS. 57:2 “I cry out to God Most High, who fulfills his purpose for me.”
o God is NOT obligated to explain why He does what He does
He doesn’t need our approval. Doesn’t have to check it out with you.
o But everything God allows in your life does have a purpose, including problems & unanswered prayers.You may be in a tough spot right now:
1 PET. 1:7 “The purpose of these troubles is to test your faith as fire tests how genuine gold is. Your faith is more precious than gold…”
Anytime you feel discouraged, remind yourself, God has a greater purpose:
2 COR. 4:17-18“These present troubles are quite small and won't last very long. Yet they will produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever! So we don't look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.”
