The Price of Your 'YES'
Have you ever wondered what a yes to God actually means? I know you’ve heard about it and you may have even told God yes, in a matter-of-fact kind of way, but have you ever given real and true thought to what a YES to God actually requires from you?
Let’s start here- I believe in purpose. I believe in how God specifically created you to be something magnificent in His image. I believe in the fact that He especially crafted a spot in this big, huge world with your name on it, and the spot looks like an assignment called purpose. But what you have to know and believe in is that God isn’t just going to hand over that type of responsibility to just anyone, even if your name is on it, you have to want it. You have to position yourself to receive it.
And that positioning looks like ‘YES’.
When you come to the realization of the magnanimous weight the assignment carries, you’ll also begin to comprehend the price of the YES. The price of your answer to God will require that you abandon the plans that you created for yourself. It will require that you execute a form of trust in God that you aren’t familiar with. It will force you to completely depend on the guidance of the Holy Spirit, allowing Him to order your steps. It will put you in the crossfire of warfare. It will cost you relationships. It will allow the enemy to challenge your commitment and dangle the carrot of compromise. Most importantly, it will process you deeply to ensure that you can be trusted with the weight of God’s glory.
Your YES is expensive, but your purpose, the ability to build Heaven, advance the Kingdom, and touch lives, THAT purpose is worth it, if you allow it to be.
