Topic: A Season of Yes
Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.”
(1 Samuel 1:17, NIV)
Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 9th September 2021 Message:
In 1 Samuel 1, a woman named Hannah was unable to bear children, but she kept praying and believing year after year. To make matters even more difficult, her husband’s second wife had no problem conceiving and made fun of Hannah, making her feel as though something was wrong with her. When the prophet Eli saw Hannah at the temple praying in great anguish and tears, he said that God had said yes to her prayer. She responded with her yes to His yes, and a year later she had her baby.
Maybe you’ve prayed and prayed about a need, but nothing’s changed. God is saying, “If you put your yes with My yes, I’ll turn the no around.” Is God waiting for your yes? Are you letting a no—a disappointment, a delay, the opinions of others—convince you that it’s not going to happen? This is a new day. You are coming into a season of yes. You need to put your yes with God’s yes and watch what happens.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that one word of favor and blessing from You can turn a no into a yes. Thank You that I can put my yes with Your yes and see the no turn around. I believe and declare that I’m coming into a new day, a season of yes. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
