Standing on the Promises

The prophet Isaiah gives us a promise about what God says (Isaiah 40:8):

"The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God stands forever."

The bible is full of promises and covenants. We need to stand on the promises. Here is link that I like to share with you. http://www.biblegateway.com/

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain

Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

by Composer Russell Kelso Carter

Nicely done, but I wonder why more Christians fail to stand. In this day we all need to dig in and--stand.
