For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. (2 Cor 1:20)
This is a wonderful, blessed, and encouraging Bible verse. It means that every promise in the Bible is fulfilled through, and guaranteed by, Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.
But what does that mean, in everyday life, to a believer?
First, the key is to remember that all of God’s words are reliable. They are firm, constant, and steadfast. God cannot lie. (Num 23:19; 1 Sam 15:29; Heb 6:18; Tit 1:2)
These promises are fulfilled IN JESUS so it’s crucial to remember that Jesus never changes. (Heb 13:8) Neither will His promises nor His support of God’s Word ever change.
God is consistent and His love is consistent. That means that He, His love and His words NEVER FAIL.
But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. (Ps 13:5)
For with God nothing will be impossible. (Lk 1:37)
He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing love to his anointed, to David and to his descendants forever . . . (Ps 18:50)
And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed. (Josh 23:14)
The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. (Ps 33:5)
. . . so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. (Isa 55:11 NIV)
So, our question from the top of the article is what does this mean for the believer. First, here are the definitions of the words: The word Yes means “certainly, absolutely, and positively.” The word Amen means “I agree” or “Yes, indeed.”
In everyday life, this means that you may choose a Bible verse or several that you would like to come to pass for you in your life. As you meditate upon the verse (or verses) and keep it in front of your eyes, know that through Jesus, the Lord has already answered: “certainly; I agree; absolutely; yes, indeed; and positively” to your need.
How glorious! We serve the God of the impossible!
