    The Power of Yes

    No 'Buts' Allowed November 29, 2018 by Yurij Chewpa

    The Power of Yes
    A snippet of Warrior Wisdom.

    In Chapter 11 of John's gospel he describes the scene when Jesus arrives at the home of Lazarus.  Lazarus has just died, and his sisters Martha and Mary, along with a larger crowd of people, are mourning his death.

    'Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. "Take away the stone," he said.

    "But, Lord", said Martha, the sister of the dead man, "by this time there is a bad odour, for he has been there four days."
    Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?"'    John 11:38-39


    Martha led her conversation with Jesus with a but instead of a yes.
    How often are you believing and yet still leading with a 'but'?  How often are you letting doubt set into your soul?
    In moments of truth you need to stand firm and simply say yes (or no). If you are unprepared, your unbelief will lead to a 'but' and you will miss seeing the glory of God.

    Can you imagine, just a little 'but' instead of a yes, and you miss seeing the glory of God?

    Today where do you need to make your yes, a yes (and your no, a no)?

    Growing up, my dad would say the same thing to me.. "No Yeah-buts". I can still hear him saying it! He was teaching me the same lesson. Say yes and be obedient, be clear. I interpret that today as saying Yes when God is leading me into (or out of) something. Saying YES, not "yeah..but..." leads to the promises He has for me. Thanks Coach Yurij!

    This is so timely Yurij. Thank you. I ran into a situation last week where my fear and worry had me leading with "but" instead of being at peace with believing. It was hard to get past but following the disciplines Warrior has coached over the years has been a game changer for my head and heart.

    Great message. There are times that i have responded immetiately with the yes or no that i had prepared for, then doubt tried to come in saying i was too hasty. Thankfully, once i said yes, it was too late to change any way so doubt had no ability to change the outcome. Thanks for training us up in adance!

    Amen! Clear is kind. Unclear is unkind. Yes or No. Very clear. Thanks Yurij. Love you! Brad
