When you come to the rudimentary essence of matter, you find a positively charged proton with negatively charged electrons swirling about. Such is life and the essence of God. God is for us, not against us, we know from Scripture.
He is the Father who sings over us, or dances over us.
He is the Yes and Amen.
All things are Yes in Christ Jesus.
To love Him with all our heart is the Yes or the positive spirit in us.
To love our neighbor is the Yes or the positive love transferred to others.
When we say Yes to the law of love, then we say no to the negative things always swirling around us.
There are many “no’s” in our lives. Elijah prayed for rain and six times, his servant reported back with a “no.” No rain in sight. The seventh time, he got a YES in the form of a coming cloud the size of a man’s hand. (1 Kings 18:44). In 2 Kings 4, we read of the woman whose son died–the very son God declared and brought to being. The woman traveled to meet Elisha, believing that all would be well. Elisha sent his servant to heal the boy with Elisha’s staff. There was a no, for the boy was not healed. Elisha then came to the house. Another no. He lay upon the boy and the boy became warm, but still, no healing. Elisha walked back and forth–still a no. Once again, Elisha lay upon the boy and finally, the YES came!
How many no’s do we have to hear before we give up on Papa’s love? His love always leads us to victory, restoration, or even a deeper revelation of His ways. When we receive and understand His revelation, being continually filled with His Presence, then we will see the God of YES manifest over and over.
HOW DO WE GET THERE? By saying YES! The YES in our spirit becomes one with the YES in Papa! HE IS YES!
HIS LOVE IS:
His YES in us becomes the reality of life. His YES is the testimony of Jesus living inside us!
Become a “yes man” with Papa and you will see Him manifest everyday! Life becomes a positive walk!
When you get a no, turn to Papa God and listen to His voice. PURSUE HIS YES!
James 5:16b, 17, 18 “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.”
Mark 9:23 “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.”
