Ever been frustrated? Ever had a conversation with someone and been so surprised or put-off by what they said that you didn’t know how to even respond? Ever had somebody say something so off-the-wall that the only thing you could muster out of your lips was….”Uh….yeah”?
I’ve had a few of those lately. I’ve had moments like that with my kids, with people at church, with people who I’m paying to serve me, and even random strangers. Seriously, I don’t think I’m slow witted, but I do know sometimes the only response I have is “Uh…..yeah”
And guess what?
When it comes to living in relationship with God, to actually knowing Him and what He’s saying to you. When it comes to obeying God even in the unexpected, weird, what-are-you-thinking kind of moments, all God wants from you is that simple response, “Uh….yeah” because it says something.
It says – I trust you. I believe you. I obey you. I don’t need to understand anything beyond what you’re asking right now. I don’t need to know what’s going to happen or how it’s going down. I trust you.
So next time God hits you up with a “strange” request, next time He challenges you to do something that catches you off-gaurd or doesn’t make sense. It’s fine if your answer is nothing more than, “Uh….yeah”
