Sometimes the answer from the Lord is simply, “No.” On paper, an opportunity may appear perfect, but we serve a God who knows all. We should remember, He is eternal and does not operate in our time. This means He knows full well the impact of you walking through this open door (good and bad). Though you may not be able to see the obstacles ahead, He can.
When faced with big moments, we must choose to pray, seek wisdom, and listen to the Lord wholeheartedly. Furthermore, we should be aware that a “No” from God only leads to a greater “Yes.” He doesn’t withhold good things from His children.
Our job is to simply be obedient and trust Him for the plan.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)
