Have you ever had someone break a promise to you? It could’ve been a spouse breaking their marital covenant or a boss breaking his or her promise of a promotion. Maybe a parent or sibling promised to help you with something and they let you down. Regardless of who made the promise or what they promised to do, it’s hard to trust someone who breaks their promises.
When we receive a promise from God—there is a responsibility on our part. It’s the “amen” meaning that we agree with the promises of God. There will be many opportunities for us to doubt God’s promises. Yet we can resist doubt and fear by proclaiming in prayer that we will stand in agreement with what God promises in His word.
There’s a lot that can happen between “yes” and “amen”. We are often questioned for our faith in God when it seems like the promise will fall through. Sometimes we are ridiculed from believing in what we can’t see at the moment. However if we continue to pray about His promises and trusting in God to fulfill, our strength will be renewed and we will find our “amen”.
The only way to know God’s promises is to know His word. The reading and meditating of the scriptures will empower our faith to believe beyond what we see in front of us. When we are tempted to doubt, we speak the word of faith from the Bible and we can’t help to say ‘amen’.
Dear Lord, I know that every promise from you will be fulfilled in the right time of your perfect will. Grant me the grace to say ‘amen’ in faith to every promise. In Jesus’ name, amen.
In His Service,
