Say Yes to God and Watch a Blessed Life Unfold!

The two year old grandson looked his mother right in the eye and said, “I said NO!” That little two letter word has become his favorite these days. And he’s using it on his mother regularly.  Of course he gets in trouble. It’s amazing to me how kids just have a keen sense of what “no” means. You have to teach waving and bye bye and we all repeat our names often for the little ones to learn, but the word “no” just seems to come naturally.  Such a little word that carries such huge meaning.  We think it’s so cute when a tiny tot says no, but then as they get older we find that it’s not so cute. Saying no to their parents becomes a sign of being spoiled or unwilling to yield their will.
Oh beloved, have you been hearing God’s instructions? Are you wondering if you can truly obey? At times it may feel as though the Lord is asking for something that’s just too hard to do.  Yet it is only in the yielding that true discipleship develops. Run to Him this morning and yield that decision to Him. Ask Him to come into your life fresh and new and give your day and your decisions to Him! His Word is your safety and His requests are your blessings! It’s never too late to say yes to Him for He is always waiting to guide and direct your path. Not only that, His guidance is the path of pure joy and the place you will find your real meaning in life. There is no love like that of our Father God, Who forgives our unwilling hearts and makes all things new!

Job 22:21-22 Submit to God, and you will have peace; then things will go well for you. Listen to His instructions, and store them in your heart.

Colossians 2:6 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow Him.

John 2:5 His (Jesus’s) mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

1 Samuel 15:22  Samuel said, “ Has the LORD as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices As in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams.

Psalm 91:11 Amplified For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].
