I was flipping through the channels and stopped when I got to the movie “Yes Man”. It is a comedy about a man who makes a promise to say yes to everything, literally, and how that changes his life. As he says yes to everything, he realizes that his life is opening up to new experiences and relationships. Not all of them good, but it gets him out of the rut he was in as he shakes the cuffs of fear that had begun to shackle all of his choices.
I didn’t watch the whole movie and am not recommending it here except to encourage you to say yes.
We often live our lives in the domain of “no” and apply it even to our relationship with God.
Obeying God is one of the single most powerful things we can apply to our lives.
It leads to transformation and freedom.
It is all about saying yes to God.
Disobedience is essentially saying no to God.
The big “No’s” will plateau your life, the little “no’s” will erode it.
You will discover and walk in God’s will for your life when you say yes.
What do you need to say yes to?
We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, (Colossians 1:9 NIV)
Maybe, you need to say yes again.
Mondays are a great day to start over and walk in new and old yes’s.
