You will say yes, Lord.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” Jeremiah 1:5, NIV.

Before you were born, God chose you, called you, and separated you for His use. His hand is on your life. Even if you tried to run away from your purpose like Jonah, God will find you and speak to you. Even if you did something you’re terribly ashamed of and walked away from it all like Moses, God will find you and speak to you. He will find you wherever you are. You may not want to be chosen. You may not want to be called. You may not want to be separated for His use, but the truth is, the decision is not up to you. God calls whom He calls. He chooses whom He chooses. He anoints whom He anoints.

I’ve learned by now to say yes, Lord.

My sister, I speak to you now by the Spirit of God. The hand of God has been on your life since the day you were born. Even when you try to run and hide, He still finds you. He still wants you. He still loves you and has a great purpose and plan for your life. If you’re not tired of running from Him, you will be. If you’re not tired of hiding from Him, questioning Him, and doubting Him, you will be. You will surrender completely and say yes, and He will use you to the fullest extent. He will use every experience in your life, every pain you’ve endured, and every mistake you’ve made to bless others and advance His kingdom. He will be glorified greatly in your life, my sister, and He will grace you to handle all that comes with being chosen and called by Him.

Prayer: Yes, Father, I hear you. Thank you for speaking directly to my heart. I say yes to you. I say yes to your way, yes to your plan, and yes to your great love for me. I can’t run from you or hide from your presence. You have called me, and I say yes. You have chosen me. Be glorified in my life, and help me continue to say yes every day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Psalms 139:1-18; John 15:16)

  1. Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you so very much for looking over me and choosing me. Yes Lord, here I am. πŸ™πŸ½

  2. I can burst into tears while I read this devotional at work… right before I came into my office I prayed in my car parked in the garage of the hospital I work at in NYC… I cried and I said β€œLord, I’m tired .. my Soul is tired .. I’m tired of fully submitting to you for fear of the challenges I have faced when I have fully committed.. I’m tired of running and the distractions (counterfeits/temptations/spirit of Comparison/Spirit of Jealousy/ Spirit of Fear/Spirit of not feeling worthy or god enough for anyone or anything) … I declared and decreed the Blood of Jesus over my Children and My life as a single mother – post divorcee now for almost 4yrs… Thai was confirmation .. I asked the Lord β€œUse me God- it’s Time… I need to know what my Calling and Purpose is in my Life, use me for your kingdom Lord.. protect me from those and everything that starts me away from you Lord…” this brings joy to my heart and I KNOW this is God giving me the confirmation that he’s heard my prayer … thank you!! And God Bless!!! I’m So looking forward to 2024! … Thank You Jesus ❀️

  3. Thank you Father, that everyday you fashion my sister to speak to our hearts with your heart for us. I’ve went through some VERY trying times in the past 4 plus years, and every time the Lord has never failed to bring a word through you Sis. I am grateful. When I was homeless with my children. When I felt as though the Father left me and He was done with me. When I was tired and needed strength. When I felt I wasn’t enough or doing enough. When I didn’t know how to overcome. When I was overwhelmed with emotions. When I struggled to forgive. And much more. May God incredibly bless you my Sister in Christ as well as your family. Thank you ❀ and Praise the Father in Heaven πŸ™ŒπŸ™βœοΈ

  4. Not my will, but Your will be done in my life Father. Continue to shape, mold, change, chasten, fashion, and equip me for Your divine purpose and plan Lord.
    Help me to keep my eyes on You in every circumstance and trial, even when everything seems like my world is falling apart or things seem to make no sense and even seem contrary to what I’ve prayed for and petitioned Heaven about…. remembering Your ways are not my ways, nor are Your thoughts my thoughts….Your ways and Your thoughts are so much higher. You have called me and You have called me to simply Trust You. Lord I Praise You for the trials/tribulations and even for the countless tears contained within them that have drawn me closer to You….revealed my utmost and sheer dependence on and in You and continue to expand my Faith and Trust in You even deeper! I have come to learn in the middle of the battles…that though my life seem like an empty canvass with blobs of paint seemingly thrown upon it with no rhyme or reason….its quit the contrary…..because just like You paint the majestic and most beautiful pictures in the sky….through every trial and tribulation in my life …You are painting a MASTERPIECE. Your Word says that there is a purpose for everything under the sun…and (in the S.O.N) and so it is. And had I not KNOWN I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living I would have fainted…BUT because I have seen Your goodness and Your Faithfulness I press on,…BECAUSE HE WHO PROMISED, IS ALSO FAITHFUL!!! Lord Your Word says You will not have Your people be put to shame….YOU ARE A GOOD, FAITHFUL, AND TRUSTWORTHY FATHER!!! Though He slay me, yet will I Trust Him. Thus as I face a storm or the unknowns I shall remember…”Not By might, but by My Spirit!,” saith the Lord! Thank You for choosing me Lord and calling me Your Friend…Be glorified in my life. Blessed be Your Name and You alone are Worthy to be Praised, Honored, and Glorified!!! Be thou Glorified in my life Father!
