When He Says Something We Don’t Like

Sep 11, 2023

We often hear one thing when God is saying another thing.  We hear, “You can’t do that or have that or be that.”  God is saying, “That is not good for you.”  We hear, “You must do this or have this or be this.” God is saying, “This is good for you.”  What we interpret as a restrictive rule, God intends to be a gracious guardrail. While we may think His commands are something that will rob us of joy, He is actually saying them because He knows they will safeguard our joy.  Therefore, let us trust Him as we listen to Him. Remember, even when we hear God saying something we don’t like, He is actually saying, “I love you.”
