All throughout the world there are millions of people who join the military. They are told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. Their only reply to the command is “Yes, sir” or “Yes, ma’am.” They may have an opinion or question the task in their minds, but that doesn’t stop them from performing the task. They understand that’s their duty.

If individuals in the military can adopt that mindset, we can too except, we can obey the commands of God. When God tells us to go here on this day and do a certain task, instead of debating or disobeying a direct command, simply say, “Yes, Sir.” We may wonder how it’s going to work in our favor, but obey anyway. Unlike man’s military, who may get it wrong at times, God has a 100% success rate.

Take a note from the military by saying, “Yes, Sir” to whatever God instructs you to do.

Acts 13:4 Then Barnabas and Saul, sent forth by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia and sailed from there to Cyprus. 5 When they arrived at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues. And John was with them as their helper.
