What do you do when God says no?

In my carnal quest to seek understanding and balance my earthly efforts and that which is given to me supernaturally,I find myself yet again struggling with accepting what looks like is obvious (mind you it just appears obvious) and that which I want/desire to come to pass.
The situiation is such that if this is meant to be the way its meant to be then it shouldn’t be this hard or at least it shouldn’t work against me the way it is.

I find I am comparing myself to one apostole who wanted a thorn removed from his side.I have on several occasions questioned why this thorn is present and what purporse it serves except to annoy and frustrate.I am not asking for diamonds nor am I asking for supernatural powers,I only seek respite so that I can walk,talk,breathe, speak and think like a regular Joe.It would then stand to reason that it is his will that I be at peace or at least I experience a measure of it,and it has to be his will because he knows the plans he has for me for a future and hope,for who among you would when his son asks for a peice of bread you would give him a stone? and if he is for us then who can be against us? …..this all attests to me that my best interests are at his heart.

So then what do you do when it all points to the fact that God is saying no?

I know deep in my heart I should just let God be God,but that does very little to ease and bring understanding to my confused soul,for this circumstance is bringing me turmoil.

So my question remains;

What do you do when God says no?

This one is on God

I have never fully embraced the idea of letting go completely.
I mean the idea of someone running my life while I watch sitting idly by is insane

Define insanity. Insert here ___________.

A Ladybird once told me that insane runs in the family.I said to her ;”wait a minute now,if you know me like you know me then you know that insanity does not run in the family but it strolls around introducing itself whilst it gets to know each member of the family personally.If anything it takes it’s time,it never runs”.

One would then conclude that I have then always been insane anyway,therefore I am in my zone.

So I say this one is on God

For you maybe sitting there mourning the loss of a Job,the house is going too,my marriage is gone,my health ain’t what is used to be and the car is making a noise even the coffee is too hot.You know you got it bad when even your cup of coffee has it in for you.

I then look on the wall and I literally and figuratively see the word restoration.

That then reminds me that if you had a Job once then you will get another one.
If you once bought a house,then you gonna get it back again
If they have left then well ….they weren’t for you coz that which is truly for you wouldn’t leave even if it could,and that which is for you has a supernatural way of finding you.
That noisy car well at least you got a car.
If it’s health I don’t know whether it’s going to be medicine or miracle healing but I just know you gonna get better.
The coffee is still a bit tricky,that may take me a minute to figure out.

No matter what it looks like I know you are going to get it back again,in one form or another.

What do you do when you are broke and broken?
-You place your order and leave the tab to your Father for;

THIS ONE IS ON GOD!!!

What do you do as you wait?

What do I do while I wait?

I will sing and praise,I will worship and I will get into the word and I will fellowship.I saw this today “faith makes things possible not easy” Yes.. Yes. We got Salvation through Faith and it was given to us by his Grace Eph 2 v 8.

Grace being a gift is given, and it is that same Grace that should see me through; for his grace is sufficient and his power is made perfect in weakness,it then stands to reason that when I am weak I am strong.But my destination is not the problem for I know where I am going and I can foresee my promise coming to fruition because Jesus said it is finished.It is not so much my unbelief or that I am allowing my circumstance to dictate my feelings and thoughts or that my faith is shaken,it is more that this is what I am in right now as I wait:

What do you do when you are in this as you wait?

My concern is what condition am I going to be in when I arrive at my destination of promise.

What bruises and scars will remain from the journey?

What  were the lessons learned along the way and what will stick?

Lord I know You and I know your Word But what do I do?I am armed with all this knowledge about this situation,But yet here I am again.I trust in you,I believe and yet I feel the way I am feeling now.

So what do I do as I wait?……………

Manifestations by Faith

For faith is the substance of things hoped for,the evidence of things not yet seen,I shall continue to walk by it and not by sight.

For all prayers have been answered and Jesus declared “it is finished” on the cross.We must learn to take solace in the fact that all is done and also learn to rest in his finished works.Now this rest is not to be misplaced with laziness and inactivity, for faith without works is dead. James 2 v 14-28:”Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works”

Conversely strike the right balance between putting in your carnally led efforts to following the instructions and walking the true well lit path that God has set for you Psalms 23; “He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.” Your works do not make you righteous for righteousness was given to you freely the day u got saved,it’s not to be earned.Your good works are evidence of your salvation and obedience. It may feel like this struggle is all about you but it’s not. God has this.Rest assured your hurt and pain Jesus relates,he has been there,felt it during his time on earth; he’s been beaten,rejected,betrayed,hungry,tempted,mocked,belittled,taken for granted,hurt&bruised.He even thought he couldn’t handle the hand dealt to him and asked God; “hey Dad you know this cup right? Could you let it pass me by, am just saying you know,like it’s way too much you know what am saying?” Okay maybe not quite in that manner but you get the drift.So there isn’t anything new to God all knowing all seeing and you are not alone.

So why you still waiting?
Where is your blessing?Where is your manifestation?All this time and what?:Nothing!

Well seek ye first the kingdom and all these things will be added on to you,its easy just follow his instructions to the letter,His word,read it meditate on it and exercise patience.God is no respecter of persons.
In everything you do put God first and watch what happens.

It’s not instant
It’s not an easy fix
It’s not an easy life
But what you gonna do? walk it alone?

Walk by Faith not by sight
And see Manifestations come to pass.

God bless you in your wilderness,in your deserts as you wait.
Keep the Faith ya all&stay strong.
Balance is key.

He died for us.It is finished.

As it Stands

They say it is always darkest before the dawn.

Light always cancels out the dark.

Good will eventually  prevail over evil.

That the race is always harder before the finish line.

The storm being more violent just before it passes.

But what do you do when you have cried and prayed and grumbled and still the struggle goes on?

You have withered the storm but that brief rest was just the Eye and now you have to go through more thunderstorms,You have been racing for years and still no finish line,all the goodness just does not seem to be winning over the evil ones and the light?well lets just say you are the proverbial owl.

What do you do then?
