I am reading an amazing book and I am stuck at two simple words in the first chapter:

“No, God.”

The book is incredibly well written with words dancing all around, and I long to drink it in, but I cannot go on. I cannot leave this line:

“No, God.”

Now you and I know that I am way too religious to ever utter these words, right?  I mean, He is God and I am not. I love Him with all I am and have. He is my life.

But I know that I have said “no, God” many times.  Many more times than I can count.  Big time.

No, God, I think my way is better today.

No, God, this is not the way I wanted it to go.

No, God, You are definitely wrong on this one.  I know better.

No, God, I won’t do it.

No, God, that is just not the way I roll.

No, God.

No God.

“No, God” is “no God” every time.

No God in this situation.  God is not relevant right now, I am. No God.

I don’t want You here right now.  No God.

In Psalm 14, verse 1 I read, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.”

No, God.

No God.
