Chapter 9: Just Say Yes (pg 59)
Quote of the Day:
“I think God sometimes uses the completely inexplicable events in our lives to point us toward Him. We get to decide each time whether we will lean in toward what is unfolding and say yes or back away. The folks who were following Jesus in Galilee got to decide the same thing each day because there was no road map, no program, and no certainty. All they had was this person, an idea, and an invitation to come and see.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pg 64
James 4:7-10 The Message: “So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.”
Putting Love into Action:
What can you say YES to today? Is there a friend that needs encouragement? Something that God has been whispering to you for a while? Forgiveness? Just say yes.
When did you say yes to something that made no sense at all?
What is something you want to say yes to, but you’re afraid to step out in faith?
