Your Yes: The Sacrifice and The Blessing

by | Jan 31, 2020 | Stephen's Blog

When we say yes to the call of God on our lives, He usually has us sacrifice something at the altar. If we are not careful then the enemy will use that against us. For me that was family. Ever since I was a little kid, I couldn’t wait to have a family of my own. But ever since I said yes to going to The Ramp School of Ministry (RSM), and now to Global Infusion; I kept pushing that desire back. On New Year‘s Eve the enemy used that against me. Right as I was bringing in the New Year, as the countdown began, I felt something I haven’t felt in a long time, complete loneliness. Now I just got done spending a week traveling from place to place seeing friends and family. But at that time, I felt so alone, knowing that I was going to return to what I was doing and still be alone.

That feeling of loneliness stuck with me for a while. Until one day the Lord brought to my remembrance something He spoke to me while I was in RSM. He asked me to sacrifice my desire for a family, and I said yes. As I look back to when I first said yes to now, I can see the family that I have made through school, work, the internship and eventually when I move overseas. This is far greater than if I would have just ignored the call on my life and said no. It is like Abraham when he put his son on the altar for God. God will ask us to do the same. When we are obedient, he will bless us tenfold.
