Yes, Lord by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/28/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It’s easy for us to glibly use the name Lord when referring to God. But really calling HimLord is to say, “Yes.” Yes to His will, His Word, and His ways.

“Does surrendering mean I’m going to have to be a missionary or something?”

Nancy: Maybe. Maybe not. But what matters is saying, “Yes, Lord.”

“If I surrender to God, what if He never gives me a husband?”

Nancy: Surrender may mean being happily married for half a century, or it could mean being faithful in a difficult marriage to an unbeliever. What matters is saying, “Yes, Lord.”

“It probably means being poor the rest of our lives.”

Nancy: Surrendering to God may mean you make lots of money to use for the glory of God, or it could mean that you’re content with very little. What matters is saying, “Yes, Lord.”

Total surrender to Christ as Lord means submitting every detail of our lives to His loving rule. Are you doing that?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
