Sometimes God’s power is shown as much in preventing things as it is in making them happen.
A few years ago, my daughter didn’t make a team she had tried out for and my heart sank. I know what it feels like to want something so badly and have that dream shut down.
She had been talking about going out for this special team for three years. But when her turn finally came, things didn’t go like she hoped, even when she cried out to God for help.
As we sat together afterwards and processed why she hadn’t seen God move, we realized He actually had. He was there. He was listening. But for reasons we may never fully understand, He knew she shouldn’t make that team.
God was protecting her, loving her and revealing His power to her. Just not in the way she expected.
