What Are You Yielding To?

By: Jenifer Metzger

In this life we are given, we all yield to something. We give way to pressures or duties or calls or desires, but we all give way to something.

What is it you are yielding to? Anger? Addictions? People? Schedules? Money? The Holy Spirit?

What are you yielding to?

So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide
your lives. Then you won’t be
doing what your sinful nature craves.
The sinful nature wants to do evil,
which is just the opposite of what
the Spirit wants. And the Spirit
gives us desires that are the opposite
of what the sinful nature desires.
These two forces are constantly
fighting each other, so you are
not free to carry out your good intentions.
Galatians 5:16-17

Just as much as things of this world like anger, money, and temptations call to us, so does God. Our Father calls to us. He desires us. He wants to be with us and speak with us.

When things like anger call to you, don't give way to it, call back to the Holy Spirit. When your schedule is so full and you feel like you are losing control, don't give way to it, call back to the Holy Spirit.

Yield to the Father and let the Holy Spirit guide you.

It's time for Share A Link Wednesday! Each Wednesday we invite you to leave a link to your latest blog post in the comments. We still desire to connect women of God with one another and encourage each other in Christ. So grab a cup of coffee or glass of sweet tea, sit back and visit a few blogs. Be encouraged and share your own stories.
