“Because I was sure of this, I wanted to come to you first, so that you might have a second experience of grace. 16 I wanted to visit you on my way to Macedonia, and to come back to you from Macedonia and have you send me on my way to Judea. 17 Was I vacillating when I wanted to do this? Do I make my plans according to the flesh, ready to say “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time? 18 As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been Yes and No. 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. 20 For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. 21 And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, 22 and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.”
Paul’s letters to the Corinthians bring so much encouragement. In this chapter, he reminds the early church that Jesus Himself fulfills God’s promises. Consider your life. The spaces where you long for promises fulfilled. And the places where there is a “not yet”. Have you centered your heart on the face of Jesus? Seeing Him face to face, so close, knowing that He possess the fulfillment of everything you long for? I want to encourage you today: Jesus is the person you are seeking. He is the light, ready to transform you. In Him, we can eagerly lay all the promises aside, because He is our great reward. I am praying for you as you read this article, that your entire spirit would be marked with the revelation of who Christ inside of you is. He is enough, and He is worthy of your everything.
