When God Says No

Pastor Ken is sharing our last lesson from the life of David...

#9. Accept when God says, “No.”

2 Samuel 7:1-17

7 When King David was settled in his palace and the Lord had given him rest from all the surrounding enemies, 2 the king summoned Nathan the prophet. “Look,” David said, “I am living in a beautiful cedar palace,[a] but the Ark of God is out there in a tent!”

3 Nathan replied to the king, “Go ahead and do whatever you have in mind, for the Lord is with you.”

4 But that same night the Lord said to Nathan....

12 For when you die and are buried with your ancestors, I will raise up one of your descendants, your own offspring, and I will make his kingdom strong. 13 He is the one who will build a house—a temple—for my name.

Devotional Deep Dive:

Think about a time you were crying out to God in prayer over a situation when God said no.
