i hear Him say "yes"

No matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. (II Corinthians 1:20)

what an awesome Scripture that i am meditating on today.  sometimes, it feels like God is not hearing our pleas, like He is not listening or doesn't care. but, i know that God has plans in place for my healing and my good, regardless of any circumstances that are evident in my life. every promise in Scripture applies to every person in Christ and that includes me. every word spoken of redemption and mercy, forgiveness and grace is written in timeless ink and has my name on it. when i stand and seek to find my rightful place in Christ with full confidence of one who is deeply understood and unconditionally loved, i am held firmly by God's "yes." the word "yes" is spoken  for a communication of agreement and affirmation. it is used to express great satisfaction, approval, or happiness.  when i stand before Him, in Christ, He is greatly satisfied and full of joy as He speaks a resounding, "yes!" 

i am dwelling in what He has promised today! i do not want to be stuck in thinking on anything other than who Jesus Christ is and that i am complete and fully satisfied in Him.  i am finding myself gazing upon His satisfied expression of adoration toward me. i am shifting my perspective from life outside of union with Him to life in my union with Him and that changes everything. God gets bigger and problems get smaller as things move into proper focus. 

and i hear Him say "yes!"

Hello Christy Rose,

May we all gain the proper focus with you (just as God has said):

"For as many as may be the promises of God, in Him they are yes; wherefore also by Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us."

Blessings to you and family.

I am dealing with an ongoing issue for 15 years. He said no for years, but said yes the past year. Now, it seems like it is no again. Very hard. I keep praying and letting go, waiting for that yes, yet once again.

So important to know the truth about who we really are in Him; it does put everything in perspective. It was so weird that I couldn't get on your blog in CA. I missed you and seeing your beautiful smile.

Amen!!

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

"Yes" and "amen." God cannot separate who he is from what he says. His Word is his bond, completely, and not in keeping with what we mean when we say that statement flippantly. He means it. He is it!
