What would happen if we said YES to God?

This became embedded in my soul when God asked me to go to Africa in September of 2008. The outcome? 786 souls were saved in 34 days! Am I throwing around numbers to impress someone? No. I am throwing them around to proclaim that GOD is GOD. I am just a common individual who knows who she is not, but walks in who HE IS. What is God asking you to do right now? When we know that we know - it is Him asking. Say yes, obey with no hesitation.

John 2: 21
” But whoever …LIVES BY TRUTH…..comes into the
LIGHT, so that IT MAY BE SEEN PLAINLY..that what
HE HAS DONE….has been through GOD. ”

Living by TRUTH –  all of the Word
all situations, all the time , fully.
” The Living Word” – like, ” The OHIO STATE ” ….

vs. 29
”  The bride belongs to the bridegroom.  The
friend who attends the bridegroom WAITS And LISTENS
for him and is FULL OF JOY…..FULL OF JOY…. ” WHEN ”
he hears the bridegroom’s voice. ”

The joy in our lives comes when ?  when we HEAR ….
The Holy Spirit….
until then…we wait, we wait , we wait….. but when
we hear HIM….JOY COMES !

* so if you are asking and there is no “JOY” yet in that
place that you are asking,  HE HAS NOT SPOKEN …..
But the Peace of GOD…comes from the Prince of Peace….

* right move, right answer – is an answer done in Peace….

vs. 31   ” the one who comes FROM ABOVE…is above ALL ”

Your situation –  HE IS ABOVE it all….

vs. 31  ” the one who speaks from the earth belongs to the
earth ” …… no competition, they are not even in the game
spiritually…..they are only ” in the earth” , yapping…..

vs. 32 ” HE testifies what HE has seen and heard ”
HE  has been to Heaven, HE lives in the power of God…
HE operates and knows all of who HE IS…. and HE
TESTIFIES……in being HIM…..” let HIM LOOSE ”

vs 30 ” He must become greater; I must become less ”

* our son Tug …has this tattoo on his arm….    HE>I

What would happen if we shrunk into the littlest form of
human, flesh, our minds, out thots …. and LET HIM GO ?
FULL THROTTLE GOD in our situation…

but, we have to wait, we have to listen, we have to TAKE JOY
in living in all of who HE IS….     HE>I

KEY =
vs. 33  ”  the man who has ACCEPTED it has CERTIFIED 
that GOD IS TRUTHFUL.  34.  For the one whom God
has sent speaks the words of God,  FOR GOD GIVES
THE SPIRIT WITHOUT LIMITS ” 

There is no limit….in the Spirit
There is no limit….in the Spirit

there is limit….in the flesh                          HE > I

Feel so deeply today….
For the ones in Africa…
For the ones reading this ….

GOD, GOD, GOD….wants us to give Him a pot.

John 2 : 3
” …when the wine was gone ”

1. When we come to the end of ourselves…
When there is nothing left….
When you keep hitting “0 ”  in an area….. ?

2.  When we enter into our day…..
Nothing of SELF….offering an ” EMPTY POT ”
Enjoying going into it genuine in “nothing mode ”

vs. 5 – ”  DO WHAT EVER HE TELLS YOU…..”

1.   We have to listen….
We have to desire to literally talk and hear God….
We have to ” coached ”
OHIO STATE – LISTENED to Urban Meyers….
They knew, listen , work , Champions
YOU COULD SEE IT…..

2.  are we “coachable ” from GOD…..
Talk about a LIFE COACH ?

3.  Believe God will tell us what to do…..anticipate it…
Look only for HIM telling and then MOVE…
No hesitation…Ezekiel on Ohio State?   ( pocket= move)

4.  vs 9 ”  the master of the banquet TASTED the water that
had been TURNED INTO WINE “……

Our lives should be in the TASTING…the LIVING OUT..
The total…..living in ” the Wine Cellar”  mode….taste it.

5.  WHERE YOU ARE AT NOW….  30 something
40 something
50 – 60 something……
Been walking with the LORD…for a bit ?
Been waiting on the LORD….for a bit ?
Ministry been hangin’…..for a bit ?

vs. 10   …” Everyone brings out the choice wine first
and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had
too much to drink; but YOU have saved the BEST TILL NOW .”

Till NOW
Till NOW
Till NOW……. in the name of JESUS….TILL NOW !

and now I pray oh GOD…..
YOU are God, we offer our empty pot, heart, life to YOU
and we ask for Miracles, in Tracy, in each life here….

vs. 25  ” He did not need man’s testimony about MAN
for he knew what was in a man ”

we need to come to you in nothing….of who WE ARE….
oh God, but YOU fill us full, of YOU,
God YOU turn us into WINE….and let others see
the GRANDEUR……the RICHNESS of GOD …
TASTE it !

” It’s a small world after all”

This was my Mom’s favorite song, ” one of them ” ….
She sang it over and over……smile…. MARILYN…
So ,  not playing the whole ” holier than thou ” thing
or Africa, this or Cambodia that, or Perry Township this….

but putting together a what ever for Africa…this came…

Acts 17
Paul was DISTRESSED….no, GREATLY DISTRESSED…
to see a city full of idols….and so Paul took this
” new teaching ” to them…..and the people God took
Paul too…said, ( vs19 )
” may we know what his new teaching is that you are
presenting . You are bringing some strange ideas to our
ears, and we want to know what they mean.”

( so neat how the Holy Spirit…tickles the heart of
individuals……. HE will speak to them…..)

It goes on to the whole interaction of Paul and the
men of the marketplace….so he was “out in them ”
and so it is for me in Africa…
and so it is for Gabe and Marla’s
and so it is for Tug’s and Angie’s…..
( I only know my families call to witness )

But we had a deep conversation about each of
our callings…..Shawnee/ Lima,  Cambodia, Africa…
at Christmas…..and we came to the conclusion…
” we are all CALLED ”  to proclaim JESUS CHRIST..
in many ways, to many different people….all over the
World.

From God’s perspective…..sitting on the Throne
of Heaven ….how does HE see the WORLD !
seriously ?   Like we see Lima?
….Mall to Eastgate…?
GOD’s ….PERSPECTIVE….

I use to see driving to South Dakota to see my sister…
19 – 21 hours driving…. 2 small kids….  LONG…..
Straight through….no motel…..LONG….
NOW :
How I see going to AFRICA….. 1 Long FLIGHT
How I see going to CAMBODIA…..  1 Long FLIGHT
Perspective…..

* God , back to YOU…..why all these people…
God, back to YOU….where you put all these PEOPLE…..
Africans,  Mazungu’s,  Cambodians……??

Acts 17: 26……b.
” …..that they should inhabit the whole earth; and
and He determined the times set for them and the
exact place where they should live. 27.  (KEY )
God did this so that men would seek Him and
perhaps reach out for Him and find HIM, though
HE is not far from us.”

1.  HE FILLED THE EARTH..HIS EARTH…
w/ HIS people.
2. He determined what generation we would
be born in.
3.  He put them in Africa, stricken in poverty –
no peace in the world – can’t make it on our own.
He put us in America to be stricken with prosperity –
no peace in the world – can’t make it on our own
He put them in Cambodia, stricken with
( not as much personal insight, yet )  but sex trafficking, …….
no peace in the world – can’t make it own their own…

SO THAT THEY MIGHT – SEEK HIM…JESUS…..not us.
SO THAT THEY MIGHT –  REACH OUT TO HIM….not us

vs. 27  ” HE is not far from each one of us”

That is what is amazing….
HE is NEAR for the people in Africa
HE is NEAR for the people in America
HE is NEAR for the people in Cambodia…..

” IT IS A SMALL WORLD, because HE IS NEAR ”
in the name of JESUS.
