Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 6th – Christ Jesus: The Final Answer

(All God’s Promises Have Been Fulfilled In Christ)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 1:20 NIV
“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.”

“Hey, Mike, why did you write that stuff on your wall about God fulfilling His Word in your life?” queried Jason.
“I don’t know, Jason; I just need God to do all He has said in His Word.”
“But Mike, He’s done all that He’s ever needed to do; that’s why Jesus Christ came in the first place.”
“Why is my life so messed up?” Mike retorted.

Reading Mike’s complaint, you immediately understand that if a Christian has any wrong perception about God, he’ll believe the wrong things, think the wrong thoughts, and say the wrong words. Inevitably, his way of life will be wrong.

Consider for a moment, Christians (like Mike) who don’t understand that there’s a huge difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament, and as a result, they’re always calling on God to “fulfil” His promises!

For such people, their expectations will be wrong, because such expectations are premised on the wrong understanding of the Scriptures.

“Holding on” to God’s promises or “waiting on Him” to fulfil His promises is a pointless endeavour; it’s a mistake! This is because all the promises of God have been fulfilled in Christ. Christ is the final answer! Whatever you think you need is already yours in Christ (2 Peter 1:3 NIV).

Don’t say you’re waiting on God to fulfil His promise of healing you; rather, declare that you’re in health because He gave you divine life. No sickness can thrive in your body because you’re born of God. Hallelujah! No matter what you pray about today, God has no answer outside of Christ or aside turning you to the Word.

So, when you have a desire, God’s response through the Holy Spirit is to guide you into the reality of what’s already yours: “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God” (1 Corinthians 2:12).

The thirteenth verse tells you what you’re supposed to do once they’ve been revealed to you—call them forth: “These things we also speak….” Glory to God!

With my mouth, I shape my life and future to completely synchronize with God’s divine provisions and destiny for me! I have an excellent, glorious and triumphant life, enjoying everything that the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ made available for me. Glory to God!
