When saying YES to the Lord, it means laying down ourselves daily and picking up the cross to follow Him. It means that we take on all of Him and none of us. It means that we take on the good and perfect will of God and take on His righteousness.
The good thing is this: It is not in vain — not at all! The benefits are heavenly! When you begin to walk with the Lord, you take on all of His promises!
You take on his great favor! He will open doors that no man can close and will close doors that no man can open! You will be above and not beneath — the lender and not the borrower — you will have more than enough to be a blessings to others.
Likewise, you will be blessed and have favor with God and man! You will never be forsaken, nor will your seed ever beg for bread. If you forsake everything to follow him, you will receive a hundred fold return in this life and have eternal life forever with Him!
He will prepare a table for you right in the midst of your enemies; and your cup will be fill to the full and overflowing with blessings that are exceedingly, abundantly, and above your highest imaginations.
All that it takes is full submission to Him and make Him Lord of your life. Now… will you still say YES??
“Praise the lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits; who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases” Psalm 103:2-3 (NIV).
“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life” Matthew 19:29 (NIV).
