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. -  2 Cor. 1:20
God does not need human validation to prove the authenticity of His promises. The promises of God are divine proofs that speak to the faithfulness and generosity of God towards His people. The timing of the promise of God is a reflection of the sovereignty of God. God will rather do what He wants to whenever He wants to. However, the fact that God is unquestionable does not mean He will allow His integrity to be questioned and despised, when it appears as if He is late. The Lord God knows that His reputation will be on the line if any of His spoken words go unfulfilled. I read from Selwyn Hughes, the writer of Every Day With Jesus, that God is both a covenant making and covenant keeping God. Put differently, God makes promises and never goes back on His word.
God’s promises are yes and amen. This means that amen to God’s promises represents divine endorsements that comes with assurance of timely settlement over disappointment. god does not boil the ocean whenever He wants to fulfill a promise. The fulfilment of His promise does not drag on because He is always on time. While you are waiting on God, be assured God is at work because He does not want to give you a half-baked miracle. Abraham knew that the promises of God are yes and amen. That was why He operated in the ASSURANCE OF TRUST OVER DOUBT. He didn’t stagger through unbelief but was strong in faith and gave glory to God in advance of what He has purposed to do in his life.
David had no misgiving about the submission that the God of yesterday is still the God of today and would still remain as God in eternity. This gave David the ASSURANCE OF TESTIMONY OVER the TRIAL that confronted the children of Israel. While Goliath kept on inspiring fear in the hearts of the Israelites, God was busy grooming David to take the center stage. The emergence of David on the battlefield, upon which Goliath had defied the armies of the Lord, ushered in new grounds for testimony of victory for the children of Israel. Because David had the mandate of God for the battle against Goliath, he was not disappointed neither were the Lord’s people have their heads bowed in shame. This speaks to the fact that when God says amen to your battle against your adversary, you will certainly return with spoils of war. Hence, may the promises of God to you yield harvest of abundant testimonies for you in Jesus name.
