There is no greater, nor seemingly more difficult promise God could have made to us than the promise of a risen Savior. Really? Someone is going to come back from the dead and save us from our sins? Seems highly suspect right?!
Yet, there it is, right there in Matthew 28:6, this unlikely, seemingly impossible promise is fulfilled; “’He is not here; He has risen, just as He said.”’
This one statement is the reason all of God’s promises have their “yes” and our “amen” in Jesus (II Corinthians 1:20). God fulfilled the most impossible, unlikely and improbably promise He had ever made through the resurrection of Jesus; our Savior forever.
As surely as God is faithful to His word, that’s how sure we should be about God fulfilling His promises to us. His promises of protection, provision, an abundant life and life everlasting all find their fulfillment in Jesus.
When we believe that God is able to do what He said and fulfill His promises to us, we simply say, “amen.”
Father, you will not allow your righteous ones to be condemned. No matter what is being leveled against us. No matter what men say about us, you, our Lord and Savior, will deliver us out of them all.
I will not fret nor worry. I will seek you and you will deliver me from all my fears. I will call to you and you will answer me. You will save me from all my troubles.
I will lack nothing I need for you my Lord will provide everything I need, whenever the need arises. You always provide for your own. Those who don’t believe in you may be in want and lack but never your children.
Thank you for teaching me to distinguish the difference between your love me and what the world calls love. I will praise and glorify you for your greatness and your mighty acts that you are issuing on my behalf. I will tell of your goodness in the land of the living. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
