Beloved, too often we think we are waiting on God, when in fact God is the one who is waiting on us. God is inviting you to say yes to the door he has opened for you. Sometimes you can radically transform your life simply by saying yes. God has a promise waiting for you if you would just seize the gift.
Has God called you to say “yes” about something? If so, what is it? Are you ready? Willing? Eager? Or a little scared? When you and I say yes to God, it’s sometimes easy, but most times, not so much.
Let’s go a bit deeper. As you say yes to God, know that it’s totally natural to feel a little scared. Sometimes it’s hard. Sometimes it’s overwhelming. However sometimes, it’s exhilarating! And that’s totally natural, too. But no matter how you feel about it, when you say yes to God, you are in His will.
With that being said, I want to speak for a moment about saying yes to God when it’s hard or scary and then I’ll talk a little bit about when saying yes is exhilarating. Because typically there are really three main extremes. So, for starters, there are many people in the Bible who said yes to God when it was hard or dreadful.
Think about it.
