Sometimes God Says No

The following is taken from another source and does not belong to me:

“Continue praying, keeping alert, and always thanking God.” ~ Colossians 4:2

Can you imagine the outcome if a parent honored each request of each child during a trip? We’d inch our bloated bellies from one ice cream store to the next. Can you imagine the chaos if God indulged each of our requests? “For God has not destined us to the terrors of judgment, but to the full attainment of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1st Thess. 5:9 NEB).

God’s destiny for your life; Salvation. God’s overarching desire is that you reach that destiny. His itinerary includes stops that encourage your journey. He frowns on stops that deter you. When His sovereign plan and your earthly plans collide, a decision must be made. Who is in charge of this journey? If God must choose between your earthly satisfaction and your heavenly salvation, which do you think He will choose?
