Semon highlights: 4/27/08. The Benefits of Saying Yes to God

Galations 3:1-29

No matter what your ethnic background, you have to be a part of the seed in order to be a recipient of the promise; and it 's not by works, it's by faith.

When you have a relationship, you're healthy.

Once you miss the mark, you've missed the bull's eye.

The enemy works the hardest on me when it's time to go to another place.

Strategy: simply say "YES" to God whether I'm standing or not, whether you're feeling it or not.

In every seed, there is not just a tree, there's a forest.

There's a difference between believing in God, and believing God. Believe God, take HIM at His word.

Matthew 4:4 " ... proceedeth..." (But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.)

Key: Whatever he said, he's STILL saying.

The Principle of Equivalent Effect

Based on the the unchanging nature of God, states that every believer can and should experience the same effect that Word had on the original hearers who first received the Word.

The moment we say Yes to Him = the moment He begins to operate.

Remember, Abraham still had to make it to the top of the mountain.
Still say yes, don't get weary.

If you're in a spot right now, God wants to know how long you're going to stand on your "yes!"

3 Benefits
Our faith obedience
  1. releases the power of God (Acts 3:12) (People didn't do it, God did it)
  2. releases the wisdom of God (1 Cor 1:30-31, James 1:5-6) (You have to be broken in your soul man for wisdom to come out.)
  3. releases us to release the potential in our seed, to release the power to conquer Satan and all of his designs.
HE saved you so that a righteous line can start in your life.

12And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

31That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

5If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

6But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
