Day 4: Just Say Yes



GOD answers your prayer

with a

YES

yet it feels so weird

because you are not used to hearing

YES

because lately you only have been hearing

NO or NOT NOW or MAYBE.

Therefore, sometimes a YES is hard to handle

because you wonder

if there is a catch

if there is a loop hole

and

when is the other shoe going to drop.

And I feel GOD just shakes his head

and chuckles a bit

and says,

"That's my kid.

I say NO or NOT NOW or MAYBE

and she complains.

I say YES

and it is so hard for her to receive".

Could it be that maybe it isn't

the YES from GOD,

but our saying

YES TO GOD

in the NO & NOT NOW & MAYBE moments~

"Consider it pure joy, __________*(your name) whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Let perseverance finish its work so that you, ________, may be mature and complete,

not lacking anything" (James 1:2-4).

And saying

YES TO GOD

in all moments

even the YES moments~

"Be joyful always, ________;

Pray continually,________;

Give thanks in all circumstances,________;

for this is GOD'S will for you,________, in CHRIST JESUS" (I Thessalonians 5:16-18)

So maybe just maybe,

well actually

I am 100% certain

that it isn't about

GOD'S answer to our PRAYERS

as it is for our answer

to be

YES GOD

always.

And that my friend

is the sweet spot of being

in HIS WILL

in every second

of every day

in every

NO & NOT NOW & MAYBE & YES

from GOD

because

HE has the first and last WORD

and HIS WORD

is always YES IN HIM~

"For no matter how many promises GOD has made, they are “Yes” in CHRIST.

And so through HIM the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of GOD" (2 Corinthians 1:20)
