Good morning!  Happy Wednesday to you all!  God is such an awesome God.  Never take for granted the little things.  It’s in the little things that remind us that God is always with us.

God wants a yes

by: Nicole L. Ellis

God wants a yes

Not a maybe

Or a possibly after I get my life in order

A lukewarm trickling into cold territory

Words laced with empty promises

Or theological clichés

He wants your YES

That word used to express your affirmation

He wants the confirmation that you are His and He is Yours

It’s only when He receives your Yes

He can begin opening doors

Tearing down Walls and breaking chains

When you give Him your Yes

You will no longer live life half way insane

God wants your Yes

And this response doesn’t mean you will be perfect

On the contrary, it acknowledges how imperfect you are

Your Yes, tells the Lord you are incomplete

That word begs and pleads for Him to be the one you seek

God wants your yes

Not tomorrow

Not next week

He wants it today

So what will you say?

Will you say, yes?

What is keeping you from giving God a “yes”?  Are you waiting to get your act together?  Are you waiting to get all of your sinful desires out?  We’ll news flash, that will never happen.  You are incapable of getting right without God.  He wants you the way you are.  He died for you while you were still a sinner.  He already knows your past, present, and future.  He just wants your yes.  Will you accept Him? 

Romans 10:9 (NKJV)

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Take time to examine your life and see if you are ready to give God a “YES” today!   Have a blessed day!
