The Promises of God are Yes and Amen!
This week as I began to meditate upon the Lord, God dropped in my spirit the importance of my covenant relationship with Him. Often times we get discouraged from negative feelings and a sense of defeat. We sometimes feel like things are never going to work out, or we say to ourselves “that won’t work for me”. The truth is God has already provided success and goodness for our lives. All we have to do is hold on to those dear and precious promises God has made to us and for us.
In the book 2 Corinthians 1:20 the Bible declares “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” In his epistle to the Corinthians, Paul assures the believers of their faith and hope in the Lord Jesus Christ. Through much persecution and enduring, God has a given sure promise to the faithful that He will keep them in all things! In all situations! God is a blessing God! A Keeping God! A strong tower and refuge in times of trouble! And most of all, all of God’s promises are yes and amen! They are sure! Solid! You can stand upon them!
I can remember as a kid at church they would sing an old song that simply says: “Every promise in the book is mine, every chapter every verse every line, all are blessings of His love divine”. You see we have a promise from God that started all the way back with Abraham. Deuteronomy 28:2 says, “And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.” This is the covenant God made with the children of Israel through Abraham. And now this is complete in Christ! We have the promise of Abraham that God would bless us whithersoever we go.
Again, in the book of Psalms 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.” I’ve got news for you today; the goodness of God is with you whatever situation you find yourself in today. God is with you when the deal goes well, or when the deal goes bad. He is with you when friends come, and when friends go! He is with you when you’re up and when your down! He is with in the storm, and when there’s peace in the valley! The blessing of God is with those who believe. Those who walk after his will. Those who keep the commandments. Those who love the Lord God with all their heart, soul, and might. God is with you!
So then be strong in the Lord! Be of good courage today! You are blessed and highly favored of God regardless of the outcomes of the day! You are blessed coming in and going out! You are blessed period! God already promised it! Let’s take a look at Joshua 1:9 “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” God says be of good courage. In other words, don’t get upset when things don’t seem to work. Do not be dismayed when people talk about you. Don’t get beside your self when you walk through a dry season in your life. Sometimes God will lead you through some valleys before you get to the mountain top. But here’s the kicker, your blessed when you’re in the valley, and your blessed when your on the mountain tops!
Right now, I want you to repeat this after me: Say I am Blessed! It is a fact! I am in covenant with God almighty! I have the blessing of Abraham! I am wealthy! I am healed! I am whole! I am not alone! I am favored! I am loved! I am forgiven! And I am the righteousness of God! Now begin to praise God for the victory right there where you are! God is working it out for you. It may not seem like it now, but God is bringing you out! Out of the Land of not enough! Out of the land of lack and defeat! Out of the land of poverty and sickness! Out of the land of ridicule and chastisement! Out of the Land of darkness, and into the land of the shinning light of God! Blessing is yours! Success is yours! Good things are going to happen to you today! Say it with your mouth. Good things are going to happen to me today! The grace and mercy of God is upon me. The Spirit of God and the anointing is upon me! I am blessed and favored of God! I am the head and not the tail! I am above and not beneath! I AM BLESSED! PERIOD! Now go ahead and praise Him for the VICTORY! God bless you!

It’s referring to the work or ministry of the work of the Lord.
