And God says no. But he doesn't just say no.
To Habakkuk, God said:
"Look at the nations and watch—To Paul, God said:
and be utterly amazed.
For I am going to do something in your days
that you would not believe,
even if you were told."
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."To Jesus, God didn't say anything. He simply raised him from the dead.
God's "no" is not simply no. It's "I have a better idea."
