Yes, Lord, Yes To Your Will and to Your Way

We’ve been experiencing revival this week at Bethel. I don’t mean that we’ve simply been having services, but that we’ve really been experiencing an awakening of our hearts to God’s presence and truth.

For me, it really began in my heart on Saturday, before Ben Kingston even arrived in town. I have, quite honestly, struggled just a bit with finding the joy of ministry lately. I had gotten to feeling somewhat negatively and was taking too seriously the negativity of others around me at times.

On Saturday night, during a time of prayer rather late at night, God dealt with me about this and reminded me of His calling and His gracious support. On Sunday, for the first time in months, I can honestly say I had a real joy about going to church and engaging people in a ministry setting, and I’ve felt that joy since, even in the face of somewhat difficult leadership issues.

In the early service on Sunday, we sang a hymn that has been talked about and repeated throughout the week, and I simply wanted to leave you with the words…

Yes, Lord, yes, to Your will and to Your way
Yes, Lord, yes, I will trust You and obey
When Your Spirit speaks to me, with my whole heart I’ll agree
And my answer will be yes, Lord, yes!
Repeat Chorus:

Lord I give You all the glory for all You’ve given me
You have filled my life until I overflows
All I have is Yours to use, just anyway You choose
You are Lord of all, so how can I say no. So I say…..

If I never knew the fullness of living in Your will
You see, I would never know how rich my life could be
Lord, my willingness to serve, is the least that You deserve
For all the blessings you have showered over me. And I say…..

Yes, Lord, yes, to Your will and to Your way
Yes, Lord, yes, I will trust You and obey
When Your Spirit speaks to me, with my whole heart I’ll agree….

And my answer will be yes, my answer will be yes
My answer will be yes, Lord, yes!
