If God Says, “No”

By  |  0 Comments

I totally understand why many people choose to exclude God from their lives. Why invite someone into our lives that has the power to veto anything we want. When so many options exist to satisfy the desires of the heart, why limit ourselves?

Of course to want to override God’s veto means to assume a greater knowledge with which to reason. If I want to put myself in the place of God I take on the burden of bearing the weight of the consequences. However, excluding God from life only negates my access to Him. My life still unfolds before Him but without His direction.

If we weren’t so set on suppressing the truth for fear of God saying no to a desire that He considers wicked, we could hear Him say, “because I love you” but instead…

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. Romans 1:18,19

Examine what you already know about God and see if it leads you back up the path to surrendering your life to Him. You may find that the options you longed for to satisfy the desires of your heart were mere illusions. I have cried when God has said no but I realized that when I use to override God’s veto, I did to my own detriment.
