25 Things You’ll Never Hear God Say

There is only One who will never everA few years ago my husband and I came up with a list of 15 Things You’ll Never Hear God Say. It was so well received that I’ve been expanding on it for the past couple years.

This list of mine reminds me, when I start to put my hope in people, that there is only One who will never disappoint or let me down. It also reminds me that I, too, am guilty of saying some of these things to others and disappointing them, as well.

I’m sharing this list with you this morning to remind you of how perfect the Living God is…and how extraordinary it is that He wants to have a relationship with you and me:

Psalm 18:30 says “As for God, his way is perfect…” and I think you’ll agree as you read through these 25 Things You’ll Never Hear God Say:

  1. I’m busy — can I get back to you?
  2. Oops
  3. I forgot
  4. I’m sorry
  5. I don’t know
  6. What did you say?
  7. Sorry I’m late
  8. I was wrong
  9. I’ll see you later
  10. You did what??
  11. I really don’t have time
  12. But I meant to
  13. Don’t take it personally but I need my space
  14. I didn’t mean it that way
  15. Why Me?
  16. I’m running a bit behind
  17. My bad
  18. I wasn’t expecting that
  19. I’m tired
  20. I’d rather not hear about it
  21. This isn’t a good time
  22. I’ve changed through the years
  23. I’ve had it with you
  24. It’s best if we don’t talk anymore
  25. I don’t know you anymore

Did some more come to mind as you were reading through this list? If so, I’d love for you to share them with me and my readers in the comment section below. Add them to the list below and let’s keep it going….

    Yes, Marianela. I'm so glad that, through our faith in Christ, God sees us as spotless and righteous and perfect as His Son, Jesus. Thank you for adding to the list.

Such a great list! Although humbling...I see myself in there:-( One I heard lately, "I need to put myself first."

    That's a great one, Chery. God will never tell us "You need to put yourself first." Thanks for adding to the list. :)
