For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
God desires to see you succeed and be prosperous. If you are walking in obedience and seeking to please Him, you can be assured that God will give you the best. God can only do good.
The birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus proves how much God loves you. And because God loves you, He desires to give you the best. God will not withhold any good thing from those who seek His righteousness.
God can only give good and perfect things because He is holy. So when you ask God for something, believe that He will give only the best things.
With this concept in mind we must also know that if God does not answer our prayers the way we expect, it is for a reason. God is all-knowing. He knows what will happen in the future and will only give accordingly if it is what He wills for you.
A “no” from God is ultimately a good thing. If He knows it is not good for you, He will not give it. This is great within itself. We can trust that God will do what He knows is right.
Sometimes it is a blessing to be told “no”. When our priorities or mindset is not set on the things of God we need to be adjusted accordingly. And by not giving us what we ask could eventually be a blessing.
Do you remember a prayer that you were praying and God did not answer the way you expected? Wasn’t it for the best?
Lord, I want my prayers to be aligned with Your will and way. Holy Spirit reveal to me what I need to be praying. Thank You for answering my prayers.
