Promises Are Yes
every one of God’s promises is "Yes” in Him. Therefore the "Amen” is also
through Him for God’s glory through us.—2 Corinthians
God keeps every promise He makes. When we walk in intimate fellowship with
Christ, we have the assurance that every promise God has made in
Scripture is available to us. This truth should motivate us to search the
Scriptures for each promise in order to meditate upon its potential for our
Jesus promised that when you ask for something in His will, He will give you
what you ask (John
16:23b). This promise is available to every Christian. If you ask God
if this promise applies to your life, His answer is yes. If you are not
now experiencing this promise, it does not change the fact that God has said it.
You may need to seek God's answer for why His promise has not yet reached
maturity in you.
Paul claimed he had tested each of these promises in his own life and found
them all to be abundantly true. That's why he could speak of the "exceeding
riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus” (Eph. 2:7b) and the
"unsearchable riches of Christ” (Eph. 3:8b). Paul
had found a wealth of God's promises and enjoyed them all in abundance.
Don't become discouraged or impatient if you are not experiencing to the
fullest all of God's promises in your life. God may want to prepare you to
receive some of the great truths He has made available to you. Walk closely with
your Lord and, in time, you will see Him bring His promises to fruition in your
life.—Experiencing God Day by Day
