Put Your Yes on the Table

Put Your Yes on the Table

We can find so many reasons to say “No”. You might be in rebellion against God. You might not think you have what it takes. Maybe you’re not seeing the results you wanted to see and you are weary. Or maybe you feel like a failure and you’ve been disqualified. In this series, we are learning how our lives can be radically transformed when we put our “Yes” on the table with God.

The Restored Yes

June 16, 2019

What if you had your yes on the table–even a radical yes that you had once given God–but then you made mistakes that led you to taking your yes off the table and now you feel distant from God? Maybe you have other relationships that have either become distant or severed because you can’t forgive them or they can’t forgive you?

We can give God our “Restored Yes”, whereby we accept the gift of grace He offers to us to heal our broken past with Him and to take steps towards restoration. As we give God our restored yes, we can pray for restoration in every relationship in our lives. It is only through His grace and power that we can experience this kind of restoration.


The Relentless Yes

June 9, 2019

What if we’ve taken the step to put our yes on the table but then life got difficult and we took it back off? What if we had our yes on the table and were waiting on God to move but He never did, so we took our yes back off? What if our yes is still on the table this morning but we’re exhausted, burning out, and we’re very close to taking our yes back off the table? Today we will learn how to give God our “Relentless Yes,” whereby we keep our yes on the table, no matter what life throws at us; no matter how long we have to wait; no matter how tired we get.

In the book of Joshua, the writer recorded how Joshua trusted God with his relentless yes in defeating the city of Jericho. We can trust God with our relentless yes to whatever He asks us to do.


The Reluctant Yes

June 3, 2019

What if we’re warming up to the idea of trusting God Himself—not just His plan—with our lives, but then He calls us to do something that we feel unequipped for? Something we don’t feel worthy to do? Something we outright don’t want to do? Many of us hear that calling and get stopped in our tracks, thinking of a million reasons why we can’t do something, so time passes and we don’t give God our yes; we reluctantly say no with our actions. In the book of Exodus, Moses wrote how he reluctantly gave God his yes when God called him to free the people of Egypt. We can give God our yes even when we feel reluctant.


The Repentant Yes

May 26, 2019

What do we do if we’ve said no to God? Many of us find ourselves in this difficult place. We have said no to Jesus by putting off saying yes to salvation in Christ. Perhaps we fear what God might do in our lives if we receive Him. In the book of Jonah, Jonah wrote how he finally gave God his yes when God brought him to repentance in the depths of the sea. We can give God our repentant yes and turn from our mistakes, no matter how much we’ve said no to Him in the past.
