A Greater Yes - In Due Time Blog

A Greater Yes

How many times have you been told no? The range of no’s can vary from something very minor to something very significant. As we believe for babies, we have been told no month after month for 4+ years. We actually think of it as the Lord telling us not yet. We are believing every not yet is leading us to a greater yes.

A situation happened recently where I was working on a project. Or maybe I should say, trying to work on a project. Except everyone I emailed kept telling me no. I received no after no after no. I became defeated as I received this answer not just once, but multiple times. It was hard for me to keep pressing forward when the thought of quitting seemed easier than continuing to ask and getting even more rejections.

But I chose to keep pressing forward and received a yes. This yes was so much more than I was asking for. The yes was beyond what I had even envisioned. This yes exceeded my expectations. Every no I received was setting me up for this yes. Had I known this yes was coming I wouldn’t have been so disappointed each time I received a no. Of course now that I can look back it all makes complete sense.

Don’t let any no you receive prevent you from pressing forward and believing that your yes will come. All of God’s promises are “yes” and “amen.” He loves doing more than you could ask or imagine, so don’t settle for no and don’t settle for a mediocre yes. God has a greater yes waiting for you!

    I am not sure God answer is always yes and amen. Think fir example about somebody born without a uterus or somebody with a severe spinal cord injury. These are two clear cases in which no amount of prayer is likely going to change the no to walk or the no to bear children condition (maybe except few cases over the centuries) I think in these cases maybe God has a different plan and the answer to prayers can arrive in a different way (finding new purpose in life, offering up suffering for a specific cause, use other talents/skills, growing closer to God etc.).

    There’s something about those yeses after all those nos. I think we appreciate the yes even more. i’m not always as persistent as I should be.

    It’s always best to trust in the Lord. Keep praying, I will add you to mine.

    I really struggle with this. With recurrent miscarriage, it feels like God tells me “yes” and then “just kidding.” It feels so cruel, but I know that he’s not cruel. I just came to terms pretty much immediately that I am never going to understand the why this side of heaven, and I really am okay with that. It just hurts when people tell me He is trying to teach me something or blah-dee-blah, because I just don’t believe there is any lesson that is worth taking my children’s lives for, and I don’t believe in a God who would think there was. That view feels narcissistic to me, you know? Like not everything He does is about me. That was way too long for a blog comment.

    It’s important to remember that God’s “Yes” maybe COMPLETELY different than our desires. It’s important to pray “Thy will be done.”

    God has such an awesome way of working things out and in our favor. Saying yes to Him is always worth it!
