God’s Promises

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

2 Corinthians 1:20

Although they seem to be delayed, God’s promises will be fulfilled in the perfect time. We must not doubt for a moment that He will wholly fulfill all that He has promised us. God is faithful and not a liar. Therefore, His Word is the only truly guaranteed thing that exists. If it seems that we experience a delay in seeing the fulfillment of His promises, let us look for the motive elsewhere, not in Him. As 2 Corinthians 1:20 says, all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen. Yes it is a confirmation and Amen because it will be so.

A promise is the expression of the will of God that imposes Himself to fulfill something, it is a solemn offer to fulfill obligations towards the children and the people of God. In the Bible there are thousands of promises, which are all Yes and Amen. The question is, are these promises being performed in our lives? I believe that the answer by which those promises are not fulfilled in us is given by Jesus in Mark 9:23, Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

The key is to believe that we will receive the promise because God will never forget what He promised and He is always willing to fulfill His Word. There are so many promises of God that it would be impossible to summarize them in this small space. Nor would it be possible to read each of the verses of the Bible that contain the few promises we will bring to memory today. So we will give the appointment so that each interested person searches for it and meditates on it. One of God’s great promises is salvation (Isaiah 1:18, Romans 10: 9 and John 5:24).

God has also promised healing for our bodies, we can see in Isaiah 53:4-5 and Jeremiah 33: 6. And if you ever feel helpless and in danger, remember that God has promised to give us protection, you can find it in Psalm 27:1-3, the complete Psalm 91, Isaiah 41:10 and Romans 8:31. Along with the promise of salvation comes that of eternal life, says 1 John 2:25. And a complementary promise with salvation and eternal life is the forgiveness of sins (1 John 1: 9). We have the promise to have a new heart and new desires in Ezekiel 36:26.

God has also promised to deliver us from fear and Psalm 34:4 says it. And a promise that is fulfilled in those who have entrusted their lives to Jesus Christ is to receive the Holy Spirit, in Luke 11:13 we can see it. And though life seems hard and we may sometimes find ourselves in difficulty, God has promised to supply all our needs and we will see nothing in Philippians 4:19 and Psalm 23:1. And if we often do not know how to do things, He has promised to give us wisdom abundantly and without reproach, as James 1:3 says.

Anguish should have no place in our lives since God has promised to give us His peace, which is different from the world and surpasses all human understanding, see Isaiah 26:3, John 14:27 and Philippians 4:7. The world tempts us to get out of the way of our Heavenly Father; but in 1 Corinthians 10:13, He promises us a way out of temptation. And three great promises await those who love Him: the promise of resurrection (John 5:28-29); the return of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 14: 2-3), and the end of death, affliction and pain (Revelation 21: 4). All these promises are in Him Yes and Amen. God bless you.
