“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Corinthians 1:17-20

TODAY’S WORD…

.

When I make my plans,

do I make them from selfish motives,

ready to say “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time?

For Jesus Christ, the Son of God, […] is not one who is Yes and No.

On the contrary, He is God’s Yes;

for it is He who is the Yes to all of God’s promises.

REFLECTION…

.

If we claim to follow Christ,

who is absolutely faithful and truthful

and who demands sincerity in thought, word and in deed,

then our plans and whatever we do,

should be in conformity with His teachings.

.

The faithfulness of Christ – in whom it is always YES –

is the model for all Christians.

.

Have I said “YES” to all of God’s YES to me?

Is there any of God’s YES to me

to which I am saying NO or MAYBE or NOT NOW?

.

O Lord,

I want to say YES to You every day, every minute, of my life.

.

Lord, help me forsake

the NO and the MAYBE and the NOT NOW of my unbelief and self-centeredness.

.

Strengthen me, Lord,

and fill me with faith, determination, and self-control.

.

Grant that I will always say YES, YES, YES to You with all my heart!

I love You, Lord.
