God is always faithful to His promises and all promises are yes and Amen in Jesus Christ.
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)
After getting that revelation, the secret now lies to you sowing every promise of God in your heart,
The farmer sows the word.(Mark 4:14)
