#YestoGod: The penny dropped
I have to admit that on the first reading of chapter 1 of What happens when women say Yes to God, I felt somewhat intimidated. There I was, obviously searching for a deeper relationship with the Lord, or else a study of this nature would not catch my attention.
Somehow, I got sidetracked by the wonderful testimony of the Bible that Lysa gave to the stranger on the plane. In my mind, obedience suddenly equaled doing something physical that the Lord would instruct, the moment I say Yes to God.
Three days into the OBS, the ah-ha moment happened. The penny dropped. Every word, every story, every miracle, every command in the Bible, from page one of the Old Testament, right through to the last page of the New Testament: that is what I will be saying Yes to. Lysa calls it “so simple and yet so profound.”
Mere seconds later, I received a clear conviction when the Holy Spirit whispered the words of Hebrews 10:25 into my heart. I have neglected the mid-week prayer meetings at our church for a long time. This would be my first command after saying Yes to God.
I am so excited to see what else the Lord has in store for me!
