Sometimes when we pray God says "yes." Other times, God says "no." And then there are those times when God says, "not yet" – those are the times that we're tempted to stop asking, seeking, and knocking. We live in a world of immediate gratification, and we’ve forgotten how to persist.
It’s in the “not yet” where we find out if we really trust God, His character, and His timing.
Is there something you’ve stopped praying for because you’ve lost sight of God’s purpose in it? Something you'd spent so long begging God for and it still hasn’t happened, and what began as a fervent prayer just began to fizzle out? Well today, God wants to breathe new life into those little embers, and reignite that fire. He wants to give you hope to begin again, to pray again, and not quit. He is a good, gracious, and just judge, and you can trust Him even when the answer is "no" or "not yet."
