Real freedom isn’t saying yes to everything.
it means being able to say no.
No to the things that sabitoge your peace.
No to the things that undercutt your strength.
No to the thoughts that lead you to that dark place.
Saying “no” is a lot harder to say when you have used “yes” for so long to please the people around you.
“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,” (Titus 2:11-13 NIV)
You are not hear to please the people around you. You have been set free to please God.
Saying yes to God sometimes means saying no to others.
Who do you need to say no to today?
