When God's Answer Is No

When God does not answer our prayers in the way that we would like, it is easy to think that it is because He is either upset with us or indifferent toward us. But on the Mount of Olives, Jesus proved the contrary. The answer to the most important prayer ever offered, by the most important One who ever lived, at the most important moment in history, was no. If the cup had been taken from Jesus, we would all face God’s wrath for our sins. But God’s negative answer is often the most blessed answer, a truth that strengthens us daily as we continue to trust in Him by faith.
