God says ‘Yes’

September 21, 2016

“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ.”  2Co 1:20 NIV

You will notice that in the Old Testament God’s promises came with conditions that had to be met. In other words, you had to do something. “If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land” (Isa 1:19 NIV). To receive God’s promise there was a price to be paid, conditions to be met, and a performance of certain things on your part. But all that changed at the cross. When Jesus said, “It is finished,” the Greek text could literally be translated “paid in full.” Hence Paul writes, “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.” Are you a redeemed child of God? Are you “in Christ”? Then God says, “Yes, I’ll meet your needs, I’ll do for you what I have promised.” Just as a bank will tell you, “You’re pre-qualified for the credit card,” as a believer you’re pre-qualified for the promises God has made to you in His Word. Under the Old Testament law God said, “If.” But to those who are in Christ and living under grace, He says, “Yes.” And what should your response be? “Amen,” which means “So be it.” This is a life-changing truth! Now you understand why Paul could confidently write, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Php 4:19 NKJV). Not only is God able to meet “all” your needs, He’s looking for opportunities to do it.
