YES! YES! YES!!
Yes! Yes! Yes!
I’ve gone back and forth with what the first “official” blog should consist of! I knew for certain my title was going to be something so cliché, since it is the first of the month! As the days went on I kept focusing on the word “NEW.” Scriptures about God doing a New Thing (Isaiah 43:19) and us being a New Creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) was the direction I had intended to dive right into! I mean who doesn’t enjoy a strong NEW, NEW message to begin the new month, day and/or season!
Minutes before I was about to send the draft to Pastor C, I felt a strongggg NO! 😒😩 I looked around the room like you have got to be kidding me. I’ve written the post already. I’m done. I’m confident in it. People will enjoy the new. The next thing I know I’m handing it back to God. All I could remember saying was:
“God you’re right! This is safe! This is comfortable! It doesn’t set us apart from everything else that will be posted everywhere about a new month.”
I was asked “are you going to change it” and I returned a simple YES to God.
Many times we refuse to say, YES, and move as God says because we’re fearful of what’s next afterwards. But the TRUTH is that once we say YES to God the details and provision rests fully on God. We have to be obedient to what God has called us too. For me, Saying YES is the first step of walking in obedience.
God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7), so stop allowing fear to block your YES! God can do so much with a Simple YES!
I’ve learned that saying YES to God, will sometimes have you even saying YES before you even know what’s about to happen as you speak the simple 3 letter word.
God fulfills purpose in your YES! He changes lives with your YES! Your YES will have the enemy stalking your life, but he’s already been defeated so resist him with your NO and shout a loud YES to God. God has you covered!
“So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.”
James 4: 7-10 MSG
You see… As you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior, you’ve already activated your first YES! You are a new creation in Christ and God will have you moving forward as He empowers you with the newness of life that He has breathed on the inside of you.
Unlike when you give in and said yes to your flesh, saying YES to God will have Him giving you PEACE, JOY, FAVOR, LOVE, and COMFORT in the midst of everything that you are to endure in your life. Your YES glorifies God and draws you more into His Presence.
Saying YES may not be as simple for some as it is for others. Saying YES removes all control from your hands to God’s.
YES EQUALS SURRENDER! 🙌🏾
ALL OF GOD AND NONE OF YOU! DECREASE SO GOD CAN INCREASE IN YOU!
I know it can be tough as you give up your control to another, but the most amazing thing about God is that once you give control over to Him, He will set you up for some phenomenal things. It’s not always going to be material and tangible. Your YES gives you freedom to commune with God as yourself. You won’t have to continue feeling pressured to please others. You won’t have to question God’s Love for you, even when you’re being unloveable.
Saying YES pushes you out of your comfort zone. Remaining in your comfort zone limits you from being used fully by God. We desire to make a Divine Impact for the Kingdom and the only way to do that is by first saying YES to God!
What will you say YES to this month when God asks? What YES has God been waiting to receive from YOU? The time is NOW! He’s giving you another chance to say YES!
Lord we thank you for hearing us and setting us free. There is healing in our YES to you! We are willing vessels ready to be used by You. Show us the way after our YES! We thank you that our Yes sets the foundation of Your Presence overtaking our lives. Our Yes will set us apart to fulfill purpose. Our Yes draws us closer to You. Lord when You ask “Will you still praise me, will you surrender all to me, will you love your neighbor as I have loved you, “ our answer will be YES! Give peace as we joyously say YES! In Jesus Name we glorify You! Amen!
Yes! Yes! Awesome, encouraging words! God has not given us the spirit of fear.
