Is God Waiting on Your ‘Yes’?- A Word by Doug Addison
Do you feel like you are meant to do great things? Has God spoken to you
concerning the plans and destiny He has for you, but you don’t know how
it’s going to happen?
There was a young woman in the Bible named Mary who felt the same way.
She was visited by an angel and told that she would give birth to God’s son
… even though she was a virgin!
Mary asked the angel how the destiny spoken to her could possibly be since she had never known a man intimately.
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. For no word from God will ever fail.” Luke 1:35–37 NIV
God has a word for you
All Mary had was God’s final word that the promise He made to her would not fail. She also knew what struggles this would bring about for her personally. She was supposed to get married to Joseph! How would her community react when she became pregnant outside of marriage? How would Joseph react?Mary didn’t have all the answers for her future, and that’s what makes her response to the angel so incredible.
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her. Luke 1:38 NIV
Notice the angel waited for Mary to respond with her answer to the call of God on her life before leaving her. Have you ever wondered what would have happened if she had not said yes?
Is God waiting on your yes?
Mary saying “yes” to God began a series of events that led to Jesus healing thousands and performing many miracles. Her “yes” is what allowed the savior to enter the world. Without Mary, there could be no baby Jesus!
Like Mary, God may be calling you to something extraordinary. It could be that He’s still waiting on your absolute, undoubting “yes.”

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3 NIV
Sometimes God speaks and things happen right away. Other times it seems that the answers linger, are delayed or they don’t come at all. Not all prophetic words from God come to pass as there are other factors that come into play.Even though prophetic words may seem to linger and be delayed, many times they come and do not fail you. Listen, the important part is that we trust God to lead us to the greater purposes.
Blessed are all of you who believe that the Lord will fulfill his promises to you.
Watch as 2019 brings the fulfillment of promises you’ve been asking for!
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
