“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)
Towards the end of my training in medical school, I landed in a lecturer’s bad books due to no fault of mine. A time soon came, and he had to examine me in one of the major courses. He was very glad to have me and swore to deal with me.
As expected, he made the exercise hard for me by interrupting me on and on. I knew he was all out to provoke me! Sadly, I played into his hands. I got angry, talked to him rudely, and stormed out of his office. As a result, he failed me. That was a big NO for me to leave the University on time.
I went home later that day and told my mum what I had done. Of course, she was unhappy with me. She told me I should not have been that angry. She then advised me always to be patient. Well, I said I was sorry. I also said I would do better next time. In the end, she prayed for me and asked God to help me out.
Some days after, I went back to my Uni to find out that I had another chance to face a different teacher. I was very glad! I later presented my paper to him, and I did very well. That is, God turned my No to a Yes! And that paved the way for me to leave the Uni in good time.
Is there a No in your life right now? Is it hindering you? And does it appear to be permanent? Are you on the verge of giving up? If you are, please, pay attention to me. God can turn it to a Yes! Yes, for good health (Psalm 41:3) and long life (Psalm 91:16).
Your promotion will also get a Yes from God (Psalm 75:6-7 (KJV)). And you will prosper; He wants you to do so (Psalm 35:27). Are you looking for a good job, a good spouse, a good house, etc.? If you are, then rejoice! God will favor you, and you will get a Yes for them (Psalm 84:11).
There will be a loud Yes for your children, and God will save them (Isaiah 49:25). Are you barren? Do you want to have a child of your own? If you do, a Yes is in the offing (Psalm 37:4)! Are you sad or grieving at the moment? If you are, a Yes is coming by way of joy soon (Psalm 30:5).
Kindly commit your No into God’s hands today, and a Yes will come before long. Please, wait for it! (Habakkuk 2:3) In the end, your joy will be full, and your life will not remain the same again, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Jesus is Lord!
