The Great Life

I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to dig into What Happens When Women Say Yes to God with women from all over this world (120 countries...WOW!). Today marks the end of our six-week journey, and I'm ending my blog series with this Scripture from God's Word that is a call from God for complete surrender and His promise of fulfillment when we say #YestoGod!

I am the Lord your God,
    who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
-Psalm 81:10 (NIV)

The Lord is my God.
My satisfaction is found in Him alone; every need I have will be fulfilled by Him.

It is so important for me to remember God as Lord of my life; to keep my #palmsup in surrender to His will for my life. He has to be Lord of all if He is to be at all.

He brought me up out of my Egypt.
God is the deliverer of my soul! Egypt represents this world and the bondages of sin that are all around us. He continues even now to deliver me from the bondages of sin in this world that tempt to become gods in my life.

Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
What am I hungry for…the things of this world or the things of God?  Where and from whom do I seek my provision…from God who desires to be Lord of all or from the temporary aspects of this world that leave me still wanting more?

What a wonderful verse to end my six-week study of What Happens When Women Say Yes to God! In closing, I’d like to share some of Lysa TerKeurst’s key points of what God will bless our lives with when we say yes to Him:

1.       Deeper Relationship with God

2.       More Adventurous Life

3.       Depth of Inner Peace

4.       Personal Satisfaction

5.       Better Relationships with People

6.       Meaning and Purpose to Life

7.       Eternal Perspective
Who wouldn’t want to experience every single one of these aspects as a result of saying #YestoGod! Opportunities to say yes to God are all around us…all we have to do is respond in obedience to Him.

O, Lord, my God – I come to You with palms up and outstretched to You! I thank You for all that You have shown me through this study. I desire to be a woman who will always say yes to You. I long for more of You in my life and I see that by saying yes to Your leading, I can experience You in ways that I’ve never thought of before. Thank You for opening my eyes to how You long to fill me in my hunger for more of You in this life. You have so many treasures that You are eager to shower on those who are willing to say yes. So here I am, Lord, saying yes with an open heart, willing to walk into the opportunities that You place in my path. Let’s go…
Your Yes Girl
