“For every one of Godʼs promises are “Yes” in him; therefore also through him the “Amen” is spoken, to the glory we give to God.”-2 Corinthians 1:20(NET)
What would you say if I told you that the act of personal prayer is not about questioning what God’s will is for your life, but it is more so about you coming into agreement with what the Bible clearly reveals God’s will to be? Once we come into agreement with what the Bible says about God’s will then the next step is to get into the position of receiving. You can never receive what you don’t agree with so it would be in your best interest to get into agreement with God today.
In this scripture Paul teaches us that “every one of God’s promises are “Yes” in him” indicating that everything that God desires for us to have he has already declared that it belongs to us. We’ve found it so easy to blame the devil when sometimes our failure to receive what God has promised is our own fault. 2 Peter 1:3 says,
“his divine power has bestowed on us everything necessary for life and godliness through the rich knowledge of the one who called us by his own glory and excellence.(NET)”
Our lack of knowledge regarding God’s promises can cause us a lot of undue pain. As a matter of fact Isaiah 5:13 declares, “Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.(KJV)” So now you see that through the knowledge of God’s promises we come into agreement with God and receive “everything necessary for life and godliness” and because of a lack of knowledge we go into captivity, the honorable go hungry and people become extremely dry and thirsty.
Today come into agreement with God and receive what he has declared already belongs to you. Receive your healing. Receive your deliverance. Receive the salvation of your unsaved loved ones. Once Jesus declared “It is finished” that declaration forever echoes throughout eternity for generation after generation and continually results in the answers to your prayers, healing in your body and victory over every problem that you face in life.
