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.
“You made me promises promises, Knowing I'd believe, Promises promises, You knew you'd never keep” - Naked Eyes.
The eighties were my decade, sorry. It holds a lot of reference points.
We have this little tint of disbelief when it comes to promises made and given. Why? Because we are sinful broken people. Yes, we are capable of keeping our word. We should keep our word. But we are so way-layed by the ease of getting out of almost anything if it’s too difficult or too uncomfortable. Promises are made. Promises are given. Promises are broken. We are shaded more and more by the tint of being jaded.
Good never makes a promise He doesn’t keep. He can’t. It’s impossible. It’s parent of the immutable, unchangeable qualities about God. He is truth. His Word is life. He can never be untrue to it.
And God fulfills His Word, not by the power of Greyskull nor by the energy of a distant star, but by His very own self - His truth, His being. Christ, part of the Triune God brings the promised Word of God into fulfillment.
All we have to do is agree - to say Amen!
So what are God’s promises? His Word. His truth. His Character. His Being. His Holiness. His Provision. His Glory. His Grace. His Mercy. And on and on.
Sometimes we feel lost and lose sight of the redemption and salvation of God in this world. We lose touch with who He is. But His promises are real and true.
We just have to agree and say - Amen!
