Make a Yes decision

 A decision to not apply truth which you have received is not a static decision. Your relationship with God is not on hold until a move convenient time presents itself for you to obey. A no decision is like not paddling your canoe up stream. In Heb. 5 11-13, the writer of Hebrews tells those believers that they have become dull of hearing and need to have the elementary things of God taught to them all over again. This is because they have not put those things into practice.

A yes decision on the other hand, moves us closer to God even before we have fully applied the truth to our life. A decision to obey starts us on a process that takes us ever closer to the Lord. In Ps. 51:10-12, David prayed, "Create in me a clean heart oh God and renew a right spirit within me." That did not happen overnight I'm sure, but every prayer drew him closer to the goal.

Don't hesitate to respond to God. Even if it means acknowledging the truth and telling him you want to obey, but you're struggling. Thats OK. Be honest with the Lord and take whatever step you can towards him.
