Summary: Gods Word never, let me say it again “GODS WORD NEVER EVER” stops completing its given assignment! Gods Word constantly is searching for and making itself available for meeting every need of His children!
Are we there yet?
Most of us, spend our entire lives trying to get everyone to say yes to the things we want to do in life and from life. When were young we learn our parents strengths and weaknesses and how to manipulate, or play them against one another to get what we want.
Some of us are really good at it, some not so much. Some people will go to great lengths to get the desired result of the word yes!
You got your way, you got a loan, you got the part in the play! She or he said yes to spending the rest of their life with you. What were they thinking?
Yes is the desired result everyone wants to hear, but not always what everyone wants to say. How many times have you heard someone say, I need to learn how to say no?
Because responding with a yes, usually means action or labor will be required to back up the response of yes!
How many times have you heard if you want something done ask a busy person to do it? Because they always find the time to fit the task into their busy schedule, right?
This line of thinking, seems like it would be a great fit for a spiritually minded person.
But more often then not, a persons reasoning and expectations from God become altered, when dealing with their own needs concerning spiritual matters.
This doesn’t affect everyone else’s needs and Gods ability to work in their lives, only their own life!
If you are willing to say yes to the things of God, God is willing to say yes to you! God doesn’t have to be manipulated to get your desired result.
I would even add, every time Gods willingness to respond is with a better answer and solution for your need, than your expectation!
God wants you to come to Him with your needs, wants and desires feeling entitled to receive His best ability to deliver in your situation, each and every time you come!
Because if you have a relationship with His Son Jesus as Lord and Saviour, YOU ARE ENTITLED! This is a truth and a promise, guaranteed in and by the Cross and the infallible Word of God!
So as a believer, you and I could be and are entitled to all of the benefits and promises, God has promised you, delivered by Jesus, Completed and Finished Work!!
2nd Corinthians 1:20-22 NKJ.
20. For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.
21. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God,
22. who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.
The MSG. says I this way,
20-22. Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. In him, this is what we preach and pray, the great Amen, God's Yes and our Yes together, gloriously evident. God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting his Yes within us. By his Spirit he has stamped us with his eternal pledge—a sure beginning of what he is destined to complete.
Yes, there will be complete completion in the bye and bye! But let us never lose sight of the fact, Gods word completes its assignment each and everyday and has never stopped doing so from day one!
Psalm 107:17-22 MSG
Some of you were sick because you’d lived a bad life,
your bodies feeling the effects of your sin;
You couldn’t stand the sight of food,
so miserable you thought you’d be better off dead.
Then you called out to God in your desperate condition;
he got you out in the nick of time.
He spoke the word that healed you,
that pulled you back from the brink of death.
So thank God for his marvelous love,
for his miracle mercy to the children he loves;
Offer thanksgiving sacrifices,
tell the world what he’s done—sing it out!
God’s response each and everyday is yes! He’s not a maybe tomorrow kind of God of wait and see! God is a God of yes and amen of right now at this very moment!
Isaiah 53:5 NKJ
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
We are what? You see we don’t have to continually ask God to heal our bodies, like it’s a futuristic event! Our healing already happened! God already said yes to our request!
Instead of continually asking God to heal us, we need to start acting and realize we already have been healed!
It’s not like in the car and we’ve all heard, when a little child says daddy are we there yet! WE ARE ALREADY THERE! We may not realize it, but we already are in the position to receive what has been done for us, whether we realize it or not!
