Prepare for the Promise
The Word of the Lord in II Cor. 1:20 says, “For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” Promises of health, prosperity, protection, provision are all sure and confirmed by the Word of God. They don’t waver and we don’t need to worry that God will fulfill them in some people and not others. Our hope is built on this most holy faith that God will do just what He said He will do. So what’s our responsibility in this equation? Prepare for the Promise! Yes, we must first believe that God is and can do all that He said He will do, but we must also wash ourselves and come clean with God about who and where we are in Him. There is the promise, but there is also judgment for the people of God. By no means is God looking to condemn us and sentence us to some eternal punishment for the sins or weights in our lives, but we must, through the Word of God, be willing to be washed and made ready to receive all that He has for us. Our lives should line up with the Word of God, and when it doesn’t that hinders the promises of God from being fulfilled in our lives. Accept His preparation process, accept His way of thinking and doing things, give Him a “yea and amen”, and watch the promises of God for your life come to life!
