There’s Power in Saying ‘NO’

There’s Power in Saying “NO”!

“No, indeed,’ the wise ones answered, ‘there is not enough for you and for us. Go to the store and buy some for yourselves.’ Matthew 25:9

When you’re constantly saying “yes” to everyone and everything, you can quickly lose sight of what’s important to you. Before you know it, your time and energy are being drained by others, leaving little for yourself. Therefore, you must learn to say ‘NO’ gracefully to things that do not matter to your life or align with God’s will. You will have to learn how to say no without fear or hesitation. Learning to say “no” sometimes without feeling guilty is an important skill that can help you regain control of your life.

The Bible passage in Matthew 25:9 speaks of the five wise virgins who identified their priority and said no to the unwise. They refused to let their lamps go out and missed the opportunity to enter the wedding feast. This is a powerful example of the importance of saying no. Therefore, start by identifying your priorities and then defend them as godly. When someone asks for something that doesn’t fit your priorities, say “no” without hesitation. There’s no need to feel guilty; you’re doing what’s best for yourself.

Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what the will of God is, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

There are many situations in life where we are faced with choices, some that may seem small but can have a big impact down the road. It’s important to be aware of the consequences of our decisions and to know when to say no. When we say yes to things we don’t really want to, or when we agree to too many commitments, we can feel overwhelmed and stressed. Saying no gives us back control over our lives and allows us to focus on what’s important.

It can be difficult to say “no” when others expect a different answer, but you’ll find it easier with practice. Soon enough, you’ll start enjoying the freedom of setting boundaries and knowing your priorities. Saying ‘no’ without hurting the other person’s feelings and maintaining relationships is one of the best ways to get through life. I pray that when that day comes, the Lord will give you the ability to reject anything that is not meant for you in Jesus’ name. Amen. Romans 13:14 says, “On the contrary, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for gratifying your earthly desires.” Amen.

1. Thank you, Jesus, for allowing me to say yes to your will and no to the devil’s plan in my life.
2. I reject every plan of the devil who wants me to be an enslaved person in his kingdom. I refuse to let him take control of my life and force it upon me to live according to his will. Therefore, I am willing to do whatever it takes for God’s sake and not allow myself to be controlled by Satan in Jesus’ name. Amen.
