His Promises

2 Corinthians 1:20 NKJV 
For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

I recently saw this quote on Social Media: "It is impossible to walk with God without patience. It is required to receive His promises."

First of all, I believe that patience is not about waiting. It is about what we do while we wait. And the Great Commision does a good job showing us what we are to do. We are to go... (Mark 16:15-18)

I believe thinking we are required to wait to receive His promises is old covenant thinking. Under the new covenant, all His promises are yes and amen. The only work is to believe in the one the Father sent. (John 6:29) There is no longer any "if" to walk in any promise. Jesus fulfilled it all at the cross.

No longer are we burdened with having to "do" to receive. We walk in the age of grace not law. The promised inheritance is ours. The only thing stopping us from receiving every promise is us. Nothing is impossible with God. (Matthew 9:26) Just receive. (Matthew 21:22) Walk in it.

Father God, thank you for sending Jesus. Thank you, Jesus, for all you have done for us. Thank you for fulfilling the law so we would no longer be under its burden, For paying our sin debt and freeing us forevermore.
