How to get a 'yes' from God when He says 'no'

What do you do when God says no?

Your enemies have done far more for your destiny than any of your friends. They forced you to grow, they forced you to fight, they forced you to pray. The attack on your faith is an attempt to frustrate you to turn away from God. 

But always remember that the point of your attack, is often the place of your assignment. No thief robs an empty vault. God turns around for your good everything that the enemy meant for evil.

In order to have something you’ve never had, in order to achieve something you’ve never achieved, you need to learn to pray. You must be willing to PUSH – Pray Until Something Happens! Pain is an indication that you are close to birthing your miracle, and it’s only going to come out if you PUSH. 

When you get to the place where you waited so long and you’ve tried everything, you recognise that only God can do it. When you give God what’s in your hand, He’ll give you what’s in His hand. Remember that God is a jealous God. He doesn’t want us to desire anything more than Him. God will give anything to you if He can get it through you.

 So make a decision to give Him that problem you’ve been holding onto for years. Give Him your dreams, give Him your hopes, give Him your marriage, give Him your business, give Him your finances. And watch and see if He will not open up the floodgates of heaven and pour out a blessing that you won’t have room enough to contain. 


Lord, I thank you that every good and perfect gift comes from above. Today I dedicate my hopes, my dreams and my aspirations to you. I give you all my gifts and my talents to be used for your glory. May your hand of favour and blessing be upon my life. Make me a testimony of your goodness and glory in the earth. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray. Amen.
