3:16 Plan - Week 21 - Day 3 - Year 3 - Acts 16:6-12

Remember, God sometimes answers our prayers with ‘No’.  That can be as confirming and positive as a ‘Yes’ or even a ‘Not Now’. 

Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word 

Acts 16:9 That night Paul had a vision: A man from Macedonia in northern Greece was standing there, pleading with him, "Come over to Macedonia and help us!"

This group of church planting missionaries simply wanted to serve Jesus and His Kingdom.  They kept trying to go places and God continued to redirect.  When God redirects in our lives we must be sensitive to His Spirit’s guiding rather than sensitive to our own desires.  A no to one way is a help for us to discern where God’s ‘Yes’ is…

Yield

Lord, I will not be overly sensitive to Your ‘No’ answers because I trust You.

Revelation

Obediently Serving God when He agrees with what you want is pretty easy.  Obediently Serving God when He says ‘No’ or ‘Not Now’ can be difficult, frustrating and even an emotional roller coaster.  Allow God to Morph your Mindset so that when He lovingly says ‘No’ then you are able to accept that as a caring redirection from a Good Father.
