Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 2nd – They’re Already Done

(All Of God’s Promises To Us Were 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.”

LET’S TALK
“Dad, I have a question for you about this morning’s prayers.”
“Shoot, Dave!”
“As you prayed concerning Uncle T’s health, instead of asking God to heal him, you thanked God for having healed him. Uncle T hasn’t told you he’s better yet, so why thank God already? Why did you do that?”

“That’s because God has fulfilled every promise he made to us in Christ Jesus, including health, prosperity, and every other thing. That’s why we thank him and declare by faith that they’ve all been done.”

Like Dave’s father explained, Christ Jesus is the fulfilment of every promise God made to us. We’re not expecting the completion of any promise. We have, and live in, the truth of His Word NOW!

There’s no need to say, “O, Lord, you promised to heal me,” or “Lord, you promised to deliver me.” To say that is to be completely oblivious of what Christ really came to do; He’s the blessing of God to you.

There’s no place in the New Testament that tells you today God is going to heal you and that you should pray that He might heal you. He did it already in Christ! So, we do not need to be asking Him to do things He’s already done.

If your parents gave you a gift and it took you some assembling for it to work, you don’t go back to your parents to request another one if you didn’t get it assembled. You’d just read the manual and do the assembling. You take responsibility and make it work!

For the Christian, divine health, prosperity, remission of your sins, justification, sanctification, and righteousness aren’t promises. All these are blessings God has freely given to you in Christ (2 Peter 1:3), so quit the struggle and enjoy your life in Christ.

2 Peter 1:3-4; 1 Corinthians 3:21-22

Speak:
I own everything that God owns, for I’m an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ. All the blessings of God have been made available to me in Christ. God has blessed me with every blessing that exists in the heavenly realm—prosperity, victory, success, joy, peace—and all the blessings of the Kingdom are now mine!
