“For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you… was not “Yes” and “No,” but in Him it has always been “Yes.” For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through Him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.”
— 2 Corinthians 1:19-20
Do you believe the Bible or do you believe your circumstances? Often we feel it’s too difficult to muster up courage to try and believe, but you can rest assured if you are in Christ, God is seeking to make His promises a reality in your life. You’re qualified in Jesus alone.
Look at the second part of 2 Corinthians 1:20 in the NIV. ”so through Him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Amen means to establish. This means we have a part to play in the establishing of God’s promises in our lives. We could say it this way, God’s promises are established in our lives as we speak.
I’m not talking about trying to convince God to give you things through fervent prayer, I’m talking about coming into agreement with who God has revealed Himself to be, what He said in His Word and making sure your words line up with that.
When was the last time you spoke the truth of God over your situation? Not confessing to make them true or force God’s hands, but speaking because they are true.
We should choose a promise to focus on each day! There are 365 days per year – a challenge!
Walk them, claim them, believe them, Amen. I should have started off by asking what promises are, what they mean to you. But, I said we’d start off sharing, then I can ask.
