Standing on the promises of Christ my King

1
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.
  Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
  I'm standing on the promises of God.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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.
5
Standing on the promises I shall not fall,
List'ning every moment to the Spirit's call.
Resting in my Savior as my All in all,
  Standing on the promises of God.

To me ‘Standing on the promises of God’ means being confident that God is always in control whatever the situation. It means that God will always and under any and all circumstances deliver on His promises. God is not a man that He should lie. His plans for us are always perfect.

I appreciate and love this hymn. Verse 2 tells all:

2. “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”.

Standing on the promises is living by faith. It is trusting God in the dark and in the valley of the shadow of death. It is knowing that God is not only able, but He is willing to perform on His promise. Father, thank you for the grace to always prevail by the living Word. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

This lyrics further teaches us that God never fails in fulfilling his promises to mankind. It's only impatience that often makes man to erroneously conclude that God changes.

May God give us the grace to patiently walk with him without failing.
