Bigger Than No

Have you ever prayed so hard, long, and positive that you just knew YES came from the Answered Prayer Store packaged in a YES bag, delivered by the Angel “Yes”?
Remember how you felt to know the answer was No, or at least the answer for now from heaven is NO. At this point, this will not change No Not Now.
This No is more of a life change than you think.
Have you grown past or above No?
Of Course, we understand No especially if it’s a divine definite No.
Are we obedient enough to humble ourselves even more and say to the Lord,
“Yes, Lord Yes. Thank you for your No to me. I love you Lord and respect your decision. I know you see far enough ahead to protect me from myself now and in the future. Whether it be my mouth, my denial, or even if I am innocent…you have and do keep the evils of Yes from overtaking me, mine, and most of all Yours. I am bigger than No because I know You. I know You are looking out for me. Your finality finalizes with No argument. You are My Answer and My Answerer. If you always told me No, I would accept No. If Yes wasn’t in my understanding, I would settle into You… as I did in the beginning when I knew nothing of No or Yes. Lord, thank you also for being the Yes of my Life. You are my balancer, weighing in on my substance. “?
Even the Yes, as positive as it is, is hard for me to believe.
I’ll say it:
I can’t believe You say No.
But when you say Yes, I’m in awe. Thanks for your In-put.
