A Daily Devotion for Friday, Nov. 11


2 Corinthians 1:19-20


For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us- by me and Silas and Timothy- was not "Yes" and "No," but in him it has always been "Yes." For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God.


It is not super-clear to me what is being conveyed here. Paul had changed his travel plans, and was making it clear that his message did not somehow become ambiguous or less certain. God is faithful, and keeps His promises. When he says "yes" he means it. When He sent Jesus to walk among us, it was part of a promise already conceived by God. God is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow, and His promises are here for me to hold onto. Nothing that happens here on earth should change my mind about God's faithfulness.


Lord God, your promises are the certainty we need in our world today. May I live with that certainty and peace. Amen
