If God doesn’t will it, it will not happen! I get it! It’s hard when prayer requests go unanswered or desires go unmet. I too feel deflated and frustrated with God. Hope turns to hopelessness, confident expectation becomes disappointment and faith turns to despondent despair. I have learned that when God says NO, He KNOWS more than I do. It’s not an easy pill to swallow neither was the tablespoon of castor oil my momma use to give us boys at the beginning of each winter season. I have learned that if I don’t like God’s answer, I can respond with expectations that He has something greater planned (Proverbs 16:1), hope in that He will deliver on His promises (Acts 13:13-41), and His peace (Phil 4:6-7) that will comfort me while I wait on Him. God might not always say ‘yes’ to our requests but He will always say ‘yes’ to His will, plan, and purpose for our lives!
