When the idea is not right, God says, "No"
No – when the idea is not the best
No – when the idea is absolutely wrong
No – when it may help you it could create problems
for someone else.
When the time is not right, God says, "Slow"
What a catastrophe it would be
If God answered every prayer at the snap of your fingers.
Do you know what would happen?
God would become your servant, not your master.
Suddenly God would be working for you
Instead of you working for God.
Remember: God's delay is not God's denial
God's timing is perfect
Patience is what we need in prayer.
When you are not right, God says, "Grow"
The selfish person must grow in unselfishness
The cautious person must grow in courage
The timid person must grow in confidence
The dominating person must grow in sensitivity
The critical person must grow in tolerance
The negative person must grow in positive attitudes
The pleasure-seeking person must grow in compassion
for suffering people.
When everything is all right, God says, "Go"
Then miracles happen
A hopeless alcoholic is set free
A drug addict finds release
A doubter becomes a child in his belief
Diseased tissue responds to treatment,
and healing begins
The door to your dream suddenly swings open
And there stands God saying, "Go!"
