“For as many as are the promises of God, they all find their Yes [answer] in Him [Christ]. For this reason we also utter the Amen (so be it) to God through Him [in His Person and by His agency] to the glory of God.” (2 Cor. 1:20 – Amplified Bible)
God’s promises find their ‘Yes’ in a person, in the person of Jesus Christ, His Son. He is the fulfiller, and the fulfillment, of all the promises of God, because He is their sum and their substance. Through Jesus we as believers say, “Amen! (Yes! So be it!)” We agree with God concerning His promises towards us, because He made a promise that He would send a Saviour, and He did. God’s promises are real and His actions proved them to be real. When this victory thought grows in your heart and mind, you will experience victory in any negative situation, freedom from bondage, and liberation from condemnation.
Circumstances tend to appear like unconquerable mountains, yet in Christ we can have mountain-moving faith. When David faced the ‘man’-mountain, Goliath; David’s faith in his great God flattened Goliath, his mountain.
1 John 4:4 says, “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” This is an assurance that in Christ you already have the victory! You need, however, to give voice to this fact. Faith needs to say, “Yes, God. Your promises are true!” This attitude lives in the hearts and minds of movers and shakers! You can also be part of the mover and shaker tribe because Romans 12:3 says, “God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.” So you can never say, “I don’t have faith!” Within your heart there is a powerful, strong deposit of mountain-moving faith.
God looks down at a young boy with a sling in his hand and says, “That’s my man who will save the nation from slavery.” And the young boy David did. David had faith in the ‘Rock of his salvation’. Goliath was killed with a little part of that ‘Rock’ and a nation was liberated.
“All things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23) “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27)
