When God Says “Go!”

What do you say when God says, “No!”?

The selfish person looks at the situation and figures out how they can still get it done. The cautious person sees it as an excuse to do nothing. The controlling person manipulates others to do what they have been given no approval for. The critical person finds fault with God’s logic and complains the whole time. The negative person promotes a bad attitude and discourages others from even considering the risk. The pleasure-seeking person will only be interested if they get something out of it. They all get what they want, but at what cost… and will it satisfy?

The Deception of Getting What We Want:

In the end what we sow will produce it’s fruit, it’s reward and it’s harvest. The Bible says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life” (Gal. 6:7-8). 

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Therefore Go…” (Mt. 28:18-19)

When everything is aligned according to the will of God, Jesus says,”GO!”.
That’s when miracles happen, a hopeless alcoholic is set free, a doubter begins to see the error of their ways and a broken dream suddenly becomes a reality. It’s when prayers get answered… and it happens more than you think!

When Jesus said, “GO!”… it was because of authority.

When Jesus says, “Go!” it is because of knowledge and awareness of all that pertains to every sphere of reality. We see through a glass darkly, but His view is eternal and complete. The warning is clear… don’t be deceived into thinking you can mock God or go around the authority of Jesus. You might get what you want, but it will be a harvest of corruption and it may even lead others into darkness. 

Remember these 4 Principles of Prayer:
1. God’s answers require patience.
2. God’s timing is perfect.
3. God’s heart is moved by faith, not need alone.
4. God’s delays are not God’s denials.

Sometimes God says, “No!”. Sometimes He says, “Grow!”  But there are other times… When God says; “Go!”
