    When the idea is not right, God says, "NO".
    No - when the idea is not the best.
    No - when the idea is absolutely wrong.
    No - when though it may help you,
    It would create problems for someone else.

    When the time is not right, God says, "SLOW".
    What a catastrophe it would be if God answered
    every prayer at the snap of your fingers.
    Do you know what would happen?
    God would become your servant, not your master.
    Suddenly God would be working for you
    instead of you working for God.

    When you are not right, God says,"GROW".
    The selfish person has to grow in unselfishness.
    The cautious person must grow in courage.
    The timid person must grow in confidence,
    The dominating person must grow in sensitivity.
    The critical person must grow in tolerance.
    The negative person must grow in positive attitudes.
    The pleasure-seeking person must grow in
    compassion for suffering people.

    When everything is all right, God says,"GO".
    Then miracles happen:
    A hopeless alcoholic is set free.
    A drug addict finds release.
    A doubter becomes a child in his belief.
    Diseased tissue responds to treatment, and healing begins.
    The door to your dream suddenly swings open
    and there stands God saying, "GO!".

    Remember:
    God's delays are not God's denials.
    God's timing is perfect.
    Patience is what we need in prayer.
