“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.” – 2 Corinthians 1:20 (NIV, 1984)
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have a hard time trusting that God will follow through on his promises. It’s not that I don’t believe him, but that I’m human and I don’t have the concept in my head of what it’s like to follow through on every single promise. After all, humans don’t follow through on every single one of their promises.
It’s hard sometimes, for example, that God will provide like he promises. When you look in your bank account and there’s next to nothing there and you’re living paycheck to paycheck, it can be scary to trust God to provide. But he does.
Or when you’re going through a rough situation, it can be tough to believe that God will work it out for our good like he promises. Partially because what God deems good may not be the same as what we deem good, but partially because we think nothing good can come out of something so horrible.
And even salvation can be hard to wrap your head around. Why would God want to save someone like me? But God has promised to save us. And he will.
Will God provide for us? Yes – AMEN!
Will God work things out for our good? Yes – AMEN!
Will God save us and give us eternal life? Yes – AMEN!
I’ll throw my standard disclaimer on the end here that I’m not a theologian, I’m just a woman, writing my thoughts on God’s word in the Bible.
