Yes God Matters!
THERE IS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT YES GOD!
Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful. But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation
James 5:11-12 ESV
There is a place in God where your YES will become greater than any adversity or circumstance of life! In religion we are taught 3 deadly misconceptions, that someone’s going through is a matter of sin, that when we give God a yes we are exempt from going through, and that the only glorified places are in suffering!
This morning when I woke up I started to become frustrated, but then I heard God say, “Why are you frustrated with Me?” As tears rolled down my face, I replied “God I’m not! I’m just tired!” In His most gentlest voice He said to me, “Yes you are frustrated with Me! You know what I am capable of doing and you have the faith I can and will do it but you are frustrated with Me because I haven’t responded the way you want Me to!”
I couldn’t deny what my Father had searched out in my heart! I set up in my bed and said, “Why did I have to get more bad news at the doctor yesterday, why is this so frustrating, why can’t this hurry up and be over, and You know what I need it’s Your job to provide. He again answered so gently and said you are right its MY JOB! Then He reminded me of what I said! He said daughter remember that you said YES no matter what? Remember when You said I could get glory out of your life no matter what? Remember I told you that suffering produces the necessary crucifixion to kill the flesh, to produce My glory! I said YES God I remember!
There is something powerful in a YES to God! Your YES draws God’s attention to you! Don’t believe me look at the definition for YES~ is defined as a response to someone addressing one or otherwise trying to attract one's attention! It was Job’s YES to God that put him on the ballot of Heaven! The YES produced a situation, while devastating, painful, and uncomfortable when it was over there was a greater realm of glory in Job’s life that not only transformed him but everything and everyone around him!
Can I lie to you and say that my days have been full of smiles? No I won’t lie to you! These last few months and weeks have been extremely difficult for me, but the more I say YES I feel God’s attraction to me, and it’s producing in me and through me!
Don’t give up! I know it hurts and I know it’s difficult but your YES will produce a measure of God’s glory in your life that will CHANGE YOU, EVERYONE, AND EVERYTHING AROUND YOU! Don’t believe me #JUSTSAYYES #ANDWATCHGOD!
