After 10 years of renting in a charming location, we discovered that our landlord suddenly needed to sell the house. I asked God to change the circumstances and make it possible for my wife and me to stay in this place wed made home, where wed watched our children grow up. But God said no.
When it comes to my needs, I worry that Im asking for the wrong thing or that Im not worthy of the request Im making. But Gods no doesnt need to shake our faith when were groundedsurrounded I like to sayin His love. In Ephesians 3, Paul understood that those who know the love of Christ intimately (vv.16-17) can trust God to have a loving reason for saying no.
Shortly after hearing no from God about my request, friends from church offered to rent us a home they were vacating. Our new locationwith new appliances, new plumbing, new electrical wiring, and an extra bedroomsits on the ocean, an idyllic scene of ships, sails, and sounds that daily remind us that God is bigger than any issue we face. Our loving Father used loving friends to give more than we asked.
Whether God gives us more than we imagined or far less than we desired, we can trust that His plans are much better than ours.
Read: Ephesians 3:14-21
