Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.
For those people that truly love God every step of their lives is a journey of faith. It is a step upon the promises of God. The promises that can never fail. The promises of our God are, in truth, stepping-stones in the Christians walk that make it possible for God’s people to move forward in this life with all its struggles and ups and downs, We as Christians live a life of faith. We stand on the promises of God. Men of faith always stand on the promises of God. Without faith it is impossible to please God.
Abraham lived by the promises of God. In the Book of Genesis it was the promises of God in the first three verses of chapter twelve that enabled Abram to take a step of faith towards the Promised Land. A land that he had never seen before. By faith he obeyed God and went there. He stood on the promises of God. As this old world grows darker with sin and rebellion if you are a child of God we must stand on the promises of God. It was the promises of God that gave Abram the victory over the four kings in Genesis chapter fourteen and it is the promises of God that will give the Christian the victory over all the evil that comes against them. It was the faith of the promises of God that Abraham made his journey and we must have that same faith as we go through life’s journey. Abraham had the faith that he knew God would do what he said. It was those promises that kept Abraham going in the right direction and it is that same faith we as Christians must believe in.
The promises, from God, that Abraham was able to stand on are truly promises that all true believers that journey through this life can, by FAITH, stand on. We must stand on those promises! Our Lord has given us great and precious promises. We must accept them by faith and stand on those promises. These are the promises that enable you to share His divine nature and escape this world’s pollution and corruption. . For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope [Jeremiah 29:11] I believe that with all my heart!
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. [Romans 8:37-39] Even so come Lord Jesus!
When a Christian has faith they have confidence in things to come as they trust in an unknown future. They, like Abraham, believe God. Faith is the basis of pleasing God and if we are standing on the promises of God we have faith that He is going to do (in His Time) what He said He was going to do.
