This YES lesson from Thursday night is not leaving. Yesterday morning I wrote about it and today the topic still is in the forefront of my mind as I stepped into my devotional time. I began to journal that it seems my life is too filled with commitments. However, as I began to write this I was struck with the reminder that everything I’m committed to right now had a conversation with God before I said Yes. With that, I used the 3-R’s I’ve written about. I recognized that Satan was trying to undermine what God is wanting me to do, I rejected it and then replaced those thoughts with the truth–I am committed to do whatever God leads me to do and I will say YES to it.
To add to this, the Bible reading this morning was the last two chapters of Mark, 15 & 16. Jesus’ commission to His disciples was, “Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news to every creature.” Mark 16:15. The last verse of ch. 16 says, “And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that closely accompanied. Amen.” This verse truly hit me. Joyce Meyers writes a life point to this verse which says in part, “…believe God for miraculous breakthroughs to follow the things you do to serve Him. Jesus heals us everywhere we hurt. When we are about His business, we can expect signs and wonders to follow us.”
God has been awakening in me the truth of these verses and that they are true for me. I use to believe this was all true because my Grandma Wretling said so. However, today, I know it is true because God’s Words says so.
