God affirming

God-defiers are always in trouble; God-affirmers find themselves loved every time they turn around. Psalm 32:10

Every decision leads me to one pivotal point: resist/refuse to obey or surrender/submit with joy and faith. The Scriptures are filled with examples of those who refused to obey the Lord. And, occasionally, there is an example of one who simply said, “Yes, Lord.”

I remember a quote from Corrie tenBoom, a Dutch watchmaker, and survivor of World War 2 concentration camps. She said, “You cannot say ‘no, Lord’.” How simple is that? I think this is what Psalm 32:10 is saying. We affirm God by my obedience, our “Yes, Lord.” And, when I obey, I find myself loved and loved.

Dear Lord, yes.
