Yes, and Amen!

Who is like You?
That the winds obey You
And the universe trembles with Your voice
Who is like You?
That the storms – You silence
And Your kingdom is above all kingdoms.
You live in me
Your glory covers me
I heard of all that You can do
I want to know You
There is no one like You
The power is in You
Your Kingdom is forever
And forever I will worship You.

These are the words of a song I love.  It is called Yes Amen.  The words “Yes Amen” appear together in only one scripture I can find in the bible.  2 Corinthians 1:20 says, “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.”

I wondered, what are the promises of God to us?  But I didn’t wonder long, for I quickly realized that God Himself is a promise to us.  He is not an object that cannot hear us; He is not an object that cannot speak to us; He is not an object that cannot be heard by us.

I realized it was pointless for me to try to know all His promises toward us.  He is His promise to us.  So instead of searching, we should say Yes to Christ and Amen to all that it means for us—even the things we do not know yet.

There is no one like Him.  That is His promised Truth to us.  And Christ affirms the Truth of this for us by being our Yes and our Amen.  God Himself looked down at His Son and cried out, “Yes Jesus, You did all that I asked!”  And Amen to the fact that all that He asked was done by His Son. 

There is nothing that does not obey Him—even the winds.  Christ affirms this in that death could not hold Him.  Let’s say, “Yes and Amen!”

The universe trembles when it hears His voice.  When Christ speaks, it calms the trembles in our lives.  Let’s say, “Yes and Amen!”

The storms are quieted by Him.  Christ calmed the storms on the seas; He can calm the storms of your life.  Let’s say, “Yes and Amen!”

He lives in us.  He is not a molten calf that sits dormant where we place it.  He is alive, and He lives in us so He can live out our lives with us.  Let’s say, “Yes and Amen!”

There is nothing He cannot do for us because there is nothing He cannot do when it is His desire.

So, instead of trying to figure out what are His promises towards us, we must learn He is His promise to us.  There is no one like Him. His Word never changes.  There is no place in our life that He will not move.  All power is in Him.

We should learn that there is nothing we can imagine that is of Him that He cannot do.  Our response to all this should simply be to say, “Yes and Amen!”  Yes, to Christ being our Savior, and Amen to the fact that He is the gift of all God’s promises towards us.

Stop and ponder today.  There are many things in your life that are waiting for your “Yes, and Amen”.

“Yes, and Amen” to God.

Live a Delivered Life.  Love you.
