Standing on the promises of Christ my King

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.
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 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.
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.
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.

The gospel is based on exceeding great and precious promises (2 Peter 1 verse 4, John 3 verse 16). God will never break His promise, as He cannot lie (Titus 1 verse 2)!. The gospel is that people become born again Christians when they repent of their sins and believe the the Lord Jesus Christ took away their sin on the cross and rose again as He Himself had not sinned.

If a person repents and believes as just stated, then that person is born again as a child of God (John 1 verse 12, John 3 verse 3, Romans 8 verses 14 to 17). And all because of the love of God in Christ Jesus the Lord.

Once born again a person is forgiven their sins, they receive the Holy Spirit who lives inside them as their body becomes the temple of the Holy Spirit

(1 Corinthians 3 verse 16),


Powerful hymn that just came through my spirit.

It was between late January and February 1997. We were about concluding an annual covenant church service. I stood behind the pulpit seperated by a wall at the back of the church extension? The song was sang and I was overwhelmed, completely immersed. I promised my self and God, I will ever stand on the Promises of God which cannot fail. I was already married without a fruit after nine years. I had no vehicle, no house of my own. My job put me at the lowest. Twenty years down the line, I can shout and sing the praises of Jesus my King that it really pays to stand on the promises of God, which cannot fail. Today, I am blessed with three pretty daughters and a son, houses, lands and cars. Moreover, a vision to the highest rank of my category in my career was fulfilled. The LORD be praised in the highest.

'When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

By the living Word of God I shall prevail' are words from this classic that have restored my sense of Who God is to me in every circumstance of life. Taught to me 46 years ago, the words vibrantly came to life this morning to minister to my greatly troubled heart. Thank You Jesus for this indescribable gift!

What a wonderful blessing these hymns are, to sing these wonderful truths praising our God and Saviour in song and to sing them that others may hear of our confidence, our peace, our joy, our hope. When all else can fail, when the things of this world become too heavy to bear, we know we have something better in Christ Jesus our Lord. Praise God for His mercy and grace!
