Yielding

Every now and then, I read something that might as well have my name written on it.  Each day I get short inspirational message from Dr. David Jeremiah’s Turning Point ministry, and today’s message was one of those. I’m going to quote it, but I added the pictures!

“Every week on our motorways, cars plow into each other because drivers fail to yield right-of-way at busy intersections. By nature, we don’t like to yield. The word itself means ‘to give up, to relinquish, to surrender, to give way to.’ That goes against our nature; but it’s for our good on the highways. Learning to yield can save our lives and those of others.

Route 66 is also lined with YIELD signs. The Bible tells us we’re to yield ourselves to the Lord. James 3:17 says that the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and willing to yield. Hannah Whitall Smith said, ‘In order to mold you into entire conformity to His will, He must have you pliable in His hands, and this pliability is more quickly reached by yielding in the little things than even by the greater. If your one great desire is to follow Him fully, can you not say then a continual ‘yes’ to all His sweet commands, whether small or great?’ Yes, we can YIELD at all God’s intersections. We become stronger only when we become weaker. When we surrender our wills to God, we discover the resources to do what God requires.”

I don’t know about you, but I seem to struggle with “yielding”! I just know I know what God wants me to do and I know that I can accomplish it, so I just seem to run ahead of Him and try to do it all by myself. You know what?  That just doesn’t work and I seem to have to keep learning this over and over again.  He can see the collisions ahead of me that I would miss if I had just yielded to Him. And I am spiritually healthier when I am yielding to His will for me rather than my own.  Just another piece of the health puzzle!
