A friend of mine sent me this note a little while ago.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Something good will happen to you today; something that you have been waiting to hear. will not protect you.'
There is an abiding truth in this statement. Sometimes we think we know what we want and we pray for it with all our heart. We come away disappointed when we don't receive what we ask for. So often though, we look back and see that God had something better planned for us.
Whether it is the bitter disappointment of losing or job or the breakdown of our marriage or the opportunity that we missed we need to have faith that God is good and that he always has our best interest at heart. Hold on. Have faith. Keep praying that God's will be done and you will be blessed.
