I'm so grateful that God does not answer all my prayers in the way that I think He should. I could only imagine how many opportunities I would have missed or trials I would have faced had all my prayers been answered.
Sometimes are hearts desire more than what God has planned for our lives. The Father knows exactly what is best for us and is not willing to jeopardize it for what we want. I thank God that sometimes the answer is simply "no, my child".
When we let go and trust that our precious Lord and Savior is working on our behalf and He would never do anything to harm us or forsake us, we can rest and take comfort in that notion.
Prayer: Father God, I thank you for the unanswered prayers and recognize that they are your way of keeping me in your perfect will. Please grant me the ability to find peace during this time and trust that You have already worked this out on my behalf. I thank you and praise you for the mighty miracles you will work on my behalf. In your precious son Jesus' name, Amen.
