Memory Monday – Week 62

I probably read this verse and skipped over it many times until I realized how much power it holds. 2 Corinthians 1:20 says, “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.

When we say yes and amen we are agreeing that Jesus has fulfilled all of God’s promises. If you have ever been in attendance of a church service or in a time of prayer and you hear people say things like “yes or amen” this verse tells you why – people are agreeing verbally with the word of God. We know when we pray asking for what God has already promised the answer HAS to be yes and amen. God is yes and amen. He is truth and no matter how difficult your situation or circumstance is He will fulfill His promise.

We will never step into our destiny and what God has for us until we start believing and acting upon His promises. God’s promises are true whether we believe them or not. But, when we step into what He has already told us, we can live the abundant life He sent his son for us to live for. Stand on His word and promises until you see them manifest. It might not be when you want them to, but He has to keep His word.

    This is by far one of my favorite verses! It is so important for us to say “amen” which is translated to “so be it” as it is an outward expression of our faith and belief in God’s promises! Thanks for sharing 🙂
