Yes, Yes, Yes not No
God and His Kingdom are filled with increase, expanse and growth – from glory to glory, exponentially expanding. For the heavens are full of positives, YES’s rather than NO’s. And we have the choice to join our Maker in His YES over us. He formed and fashioned us in our mother’s womb. We’re woven together with His joyfully resounding YES. Our life’s power will always be within our YES to God. This is our way into the Kingdom, a path full of YES’s to God.
Religion teaches us a long list of NO’s, yet there is no life there. We are taught to barricade ourselves within a plethora of NO’s in an attempt to become holy. NO to temptation, NO to self, NO to sin, NO to evil desires, and NO to the devil. Yet I’m created for my YES. My very make-up is shaped for YES, not NO, and to structure my life according to a NO will leave me destitute. We can’t live in the power of NO.
For the Son of God, Christ Jesus (the Messiah)…
was not Yes and No; but in Him it is [always the divine] Yes.
2 Cor. 1:19 AMP
Jesus is Yes not No
Jesus lived as a YES to God. Even His resistance of Satan in the wilderness was more a statement of His YES to God than His NO to the devil. His refusal of the temptation was a byproduct of His YES. Satan’s questioning assault was met with an affirmative statement of His YES to God—it wasn’t an “I will not” but an “I will what God wills, as it is written.”
For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!”
And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for His glory.
2 Cor. 1:20 NLT
A choice has to first be a YES, and then as a result, your NO will fall in line. God has created us in and for YES. He breathed life into us and that breath was His YES, and not His NO. We as His creations bear His mark – YES. Everything is YES and “amen,” not NO and “I won’t.” Life is plus not minus, multiplication not division.
I am His YES. You are His YES. He, who is the Great YES, has created us. Our very fibers are made of YES and we are held together by YES. His very breath, giving us life, is a Divine YES. His every thought of us is YES. So in response, I say a decisive YES not no!
