2 Corinthians 1:20—For every one of God’s promises is “Yes” in Him. Therefore, the “Amen” is also spoken through Him by us for God’s glory.
Every promise from God is “Yes.” That is a terrific truth for us. Oswald Chambers wrote, “Never forget that our capacity in spiritual matters is measured by the promises of God.” We are able to prevail, to flourish, and ultimately to win because God:
· promises never to leave us. “Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you.”—Hebrews 13:5
· promises to guide us into all the truth. “When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears. He will also declare to you what is to come.”—John 16:13
· promises to respond to our pray. “If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you.”—John 15:7
· promises to empower us. “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”—Acts 1:8
· promises nothing can separate us from His love. “For I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers, height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!”—Romans 8:38,39
· promises to provide for us. “And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”—Philippians 4:19
· promises to protect us. “He will cover you with His feathers; you will take refuge under His wings. His faithfulness will be a protective shield.”—Psalm 91:4
These are just seven promises. They are not even close to covering all the promises God extends to His children. Indeed, we are blessed beyond our capacity because of His unlimited capacity. Something to think about . . . in reveration!
A promise is a word that reaches into the future, creating a bond of obligation on the part of the one who gives it and of expectation on the part of the one who receives it.—J.I. Packer in Rediscovering Holiness
