As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been “Yes and No.” For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not “Yes and No”; but in him it is always “Yes.” For in him every one of God’s promises is a “Yes.” For this reason it is through him that we say the “Amen,” to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 1:18-20Something my pastor said a few years ago in his sermon has stayed with me through today ...Because of the way the world works, because of all the NO's we hear from the time we're tiny tots ... How difficult it is for us to trust in Christ's YES to us. Could it be there are times we return to being that little boy, cringing, our lips quivering, waiting for the accusatory finger and the angry voice...but instead we hear a YES. ... That the God of the universe wants US to rest in Him, even if we in the past, or even are currently dropping the ball as it were ...

Just thought I would throw that out there in the wee hours of the morning ...


1 John 5:14-15
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him.
