God's nature, His character, is not to say “No” to you. It is to say “Yes!” to you. But we are challenged to
say “Yes” to Him in return. He is waiting on your “Yes,” so He can move in you and through you! When we tell
God "No" (out of fear or pride,) He can't operate in us. Say “Yes” to God today for many reasons, but including
the fact that someone else's “Yes” depends on your own.
2 Corinthians 1:16–22
“I wanted to visit you on my way to Macedonia, and to come back to you from Macedonia and have you
send me on my way to Judea. Was I vacillating when I wanted to do this? Do I make my plans according to the
flesh, ready to say “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time? As surely as God is faithful, our word to you
has not been Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy
and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. For all the promises of God find their Yes in him.
That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. And it is God who establishes us
with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our
hearts as a guarantee” (MEV).
- God invites all people, from every generation and walk of life, to enter into a relationship with Him —
to say “Yes!” to Him. Whatever your need is today, God is inviting You to join
with Him to meet that need.
- It is a misreading of God's character to assume that He is a God of “No.” Even His commands
not to enter into a specific type of behavior are really invitations to better outcomes. There is a “Yes”
for you today, and it comes in the form of the Lord Jesus Christ, Jehovah Joshua Messiah.
- But God's invitation — His offer of “Yes” — requires an RSVP on our part. We must also say “Yes”
to Him! This is a daily necessity — too often we say “No” to God not out of a rejection of Him,
but because we've said “Yes” to so much in our lives that there's no room for “Yes” to God.
- Every time we say “No” to God, we close a door on something He wants to do in our lives. And what
is cut off from God always dies. Our constant need in life is to say “Yes” to God so we don't miss out
on any opportunity to have Him work in us, through us and to us.
Pray for and ask at least ONE person this week to come to church with you this coming Sunday
for the continuation of Pastor Parsley's dynamic sermon series, “Culture Shocked.”
Continue to join the WHC family in reading and praying through Psalm 100 twice each day.
And continue to pray about who to invite to the presentation of Master's Welcome at WHC Oct. 26–29.
Thank You for Your continual invitation to grant me access to Your life and Your power. Thank You for Your “Yes!”
to me. Order my steps, that I may always say “Yes!” to You in return so that You may work in me and through me to
impact the Kingdom in my circles of influence.
I understand that someone else's divine destiny depends on my “Yes!” to You. Show me daily who I am to reach
for You, and work through me to translate my “Yes!” into someone else's discovering of Your love and power.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ — Jehovah Joshua Messiah — I pray.
