Yes and No

Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us… did not become “Yes and no”… for every one of God’s promises is “Yes” in Him. 2 Cor 1:19-20

Christ gave His life so God could say Yes to the fulfillment of His promises in the lives of believing mortals. Therefore I am utterly convinced that any “no” an earnestly seeking child of God receives from the Throne is for the sake of a greater ‘yes,’ whether the fulfillment is realized on earth or in heaven.

A present-active-participle believer in God will see miracles, all right. But note this: the greater miracle doesn’t need to be spectacular to be just as certain and special – like abundant life, redemption, ministry, and exceeding harvest after a “no” we felt we wouldn’t survive. – Beth Moore
