Today’s Task Reading
Have you heard the song, “Yes Lord, Yes” by Shirley Caesar. It is a song that illustrates complete surrender to God’s will. The action of surrender doesn’t happen naturally. So practicing the process of obedience with an actually hands-on activity is the best way to learn obedience. The “Yes Lord, Yes” game help us practice obedience because whenever we feel God is speaking to us, we stop what we are doing to sing the song “Yes Lord, Yes and then we do what God says enthusiastically.
The “Yes Lord, Yes” games is important because we must be wise and not foolish. A foolish person hears God word and doesn’t do it. We can’t be fools. We must do more than just listen, we actually need to do what God Words says (James 1:22). God wants us to read and hear His Word then obey it (Romans 8:14). That makes us wise and helps us build a firm foundation of blessings (Matthew 7:24). The action of studying and applying God’s Word will lead us to abundant life (Luke 11:28), but we must obey in word and deed.
When taking the steps to do the Word, pray for God to prep your heart. So you can hear, read and study what He wants. Ask the Lord what He wants to teach you and how can you apply it to your life?
Before opening your Bible, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the message He wants you to receive in scriptures. Jot down your first impression. Jot down anything confusing. Jot down the questions you have. Jot down the verses that speak to your life situations.
The Holy Spirit reveals to us the truth and is the best resource for guidance, but we must yield to Him!
Prayer: God, You are our Abba Father. You want us to completely trust You with all our hearts. We are Your children because we are born again. You have adopted us into the family of God which makes us heir of God! You are truly loving and awesome. We need more and more of You here on earth. Let your glory fill the earth. Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Abba Father, thank You for providing our daily bread and giving us the wisdom, knowledge and strength we need to obey you immediately with enthusiasm whenever You give us instructions. Forgive us for our disobedience and disgruntle attitudes when You speak to us. Help me to stay on Your path and protect us from evil. Help us to resist temptation. I love You and adore You forever. In Jesus Name, Amen.
