2 Corinthians 1:20

2 Corinthians 1:20 – 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.

God’s promises are always true. If He says it, believe it. There are so many things in life that we can’t count on and that let us down, but God is not one of them.
There are a couple of different ways that you can receive promises from God. Most common are the promises from His Word. The bible is full of promises that apply to all who belong to Him such as health, wholeness and prosperity. These are just a couple of the things that we see, but there is so much more. I encourage you to get into the Word and find out what God has promised you as His child.
We are children of God once we receive Christ in our lives and that changes everything for us. As you are reading the Word take note of any of it that applies to God’s children or His church, because that includes you.  If God has said it then His answer is “Yes” and you can just speak the Amen in confirmation of what you know He is doing for you.
Another way that you could receive a promise from God is through prayer. As you are praying He may speak to you and tell something that He will do in your life. Be careful here though, because there are many voices in your head and you want to verify that you heard the Spirit. First, God will never contradict His Word, so make sure it lines up with that. Also, when God gives you a promise He will confirm it through multiple sources or ways. Be sensitive to what He tells you and know that it will happen.
So, as you read of God’s promises in the Word, or He speaks to your heart make sure that you hold onto those promises. Always trust that God will never back out on what He has said. His answer is always “Yes”. And so we speak the “Amen” as we give God the glory for what He is doing.
