2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV
“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”
Some days, you could use some good promises in your life. Those days, you want and need for those promises to be kept. You hope with great faith in the person who made the promises that they will keep them.
This is such a day. Earlier today, I received a rather disappointing news about a certain matter which our church has been praying for. I say ‘rather disappointing’ because no news is bad news when you have faith in God who promises you all great and wonderful things. Besides, He keeps His promises, and this is the Truth.
Anyway, after literally years of praying for and about this matter, the call came today which informed me of a negative result.
Psalm 77:8-11 KJV
“Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?  Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.  And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.  I will remember the works of the Lord : surely I will remember thy wonders of old.”
Now, God has promised us, His people, a great and wonderful result. He has promised us a bright and positive outcome pertaining to this issue. When the call came informing me of a “nay”, does it seem as if God has abandoned us? Does it seem as if He has forgotten His promises? Is this it, a “nay” to the “aye” which we have been praying and hoping for? Would this “nay” be the end result which we must accept as fact?
Nay, on all counts. I have faith and hope in God and His promises. His Word is true and His promises are “aye” and “amen”.
His Word Is True
This is not denial nor refusing to accept fact. A “nay” is not fact nor truth when God Himself has given an “aye”. This is a prayer-point and a spiritual battle which we will continue to fight and win. Until then, we will continue to hold on to God’s promises and believe in Him because He always keep His word.
Also, this one verse is going to be declared and applied continously by us from now on, aye and amen.
So friends, when you have received a good promise from God which has yet to be fufilled, believe in it. Believe in Him. Do not lose hope.
Somewhere between that moment when the promise is given and the “amen” which is the fulfillment, you might receive a “nay”. Do not lose faith. God does not lie. He keeps His promises. His promises are perfect in Jesus Christ, unto His glory. Keep praying, keep fighting, keep hoping, and apply your faith. You will get an “amen” and “thank you, Lord” yet. Amen.
