Say Yes! (part 2)

Yesterday, we talked about the importance of saying yes, but I want to help you practically apply that to your life today.


Number 1. Audibly tell God yes. Go ahead. Pause and say it out loud to Him. I’ll wait…


You back? Great! I encourage you to listen to the song “Yes!” by Shekinah Glory Ministries (the live version).


Number 2. Listen for your next move with expectancy. Psalm 85:8 (AMPC) says “I will listen [with expectancy] to what God the Lord will say, for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints (those who are in right standing with Him)–but let them not turn again to [self-confident] folly.” Friend, He’s going to speak to you. If you think you heard Him but you aren’t sure, ASK HIM. He promises that if you ask, the answer will be given. Even if you’re only “kind of” sure you heard Him tell you to do something, DO IT! He promises that if you seek, you will find, and if you knock, the door will be opened to you (Luke 11:9).


You may wonder, “What if I’m wrong?” or “What if that’s not what he wanted me to do?” Well, as long as you trusted in the Lord, didn’t lean on your own understanding, and submitted to Him, then He promises to make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6). You have nothing to fear here. (Go google some Do Not Fear scriptures in the bible).


God needs your yes!


Number 3. Believe it and do it! I know, it’s giving point number 2. But hear me out. The woman with the issue of blood believed, so she touched the hem of Jesus’ garment for healing (Mark 5:25-34). The centurion believed, so He told Jesus, you don’t need to come to my house; just say the word, and my servant will be healed (Matthew 8:5-10). You believe that God is telling you to do it, so do it. You will be blessed for your obedience.

Number 4. Speaking of obedience… this point is to be obedient! One of my best friends calls it Radical Obedience. Sometimes, most times, that obedience means turning away from sin immediately. Repent and renounce, a.k.a. stop doing it, ask God for forgiveness, and turn away from it because the time you spend in that sin causes you to drift further away from God. For me, it was watching a popular TV show, and it was a good show, y’all, but God convicted me and told me to stop watching it.


I’m going to be completely honest: I didn’t immediately turn that hour into bible hour, but the more I turned away from sin, the more I desired God. My time in His presence increased over time, and I learned to hear from Him more clearly. One night, I was washing dishes and listening to the song “Yes” I told you guys about earlier, and I surrendered. I marked that moment by writing Yes on my prayer closet wall and signing my name. It felt like my own personal contract with Jesus. That was January 18, 2022 (way before I heard Dr. Briana teaching us about our contracts and legal rights in the Kingdom).


Now, I’m doing things I never thought or dreamed of, including writing to you.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11‬ ‭NIV‬‬).

Say yes!


P.S. Here’s a picture of the prayer closet.
