"Yes and Amen" or "Oh No" ?
“For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.” 2 Corinthians 1:20 (NLT).
When we believe God’s promise in our heart, we have the “Yes”. Now we need to find someone who will give a resounding “Amen” to our “Yes”, someone who will agree with us in prayer. Matthew 18:19 (NLT) says, ““I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.” What a powerful promise. We want to find a person who believes the Word of God and who will agree our healing is coming, we will live and not die, our children will be taught of the Lord, no weapon formed against us will prosper.
We need to find an “Amen”, not an “oh no” because God’s promises are not yes and oh no. Be careful who you let speak into your life. Don’t forget Jesus threw out all the unbelieving mourners when He went to heal Jairus’ daughter. When our problems seem insurmountable, it’s so easy to get into agreement with the negative. But DON’T DO IT. Don’t agree with those who say, “Oh no.”
Even if you have to bypass dozens of naysayers, friends, coworkers, and relatives who think you’re too far out, keep looking until you find those who believe God is on His throne, He fights our battles, He keeps His promises, and HE has the final word. Find a power partner who will release his/her faith for you, speak light into darkness, healing into sickness, and abundance into lack.
In Nehemiah 6, when Nehemiah was building the walls of Jerusalem, he had two critics trying to talk him out of it. They invited Nehemiah to the plain of Ono to convince him not to proceed (Nehemiah 6:1-2). It’s significant they invited him to a place called Ono. It is no different today. There will be those in your life trying to get you to come to Oh No. Will you let them speak into your life? Or will you tell them politely and lovingly that you will not come into agreement with their doubt and unbelief? You will not come into Oh No. You don’t belong there. You belong in the land of “Yes” and “Amen”.
As you find those who will look beyond the natural, believe for the supernatural, and give a resounding “Amen” to your “Yes”, the promises of God will come to pass in your life.
