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.

Thinking over a conversation I had with my son last night regarding a recent diagnosis of a medical condition that affects both of his children and threatens their future offspring. While facing the reality of the situation, this morning I choose to place my faith on the promises of God to bless my family and future generations. This old hymn came to mind as I prayed this morning, and reminds me not only of the infallibility of God's Word, but of previous generations of my family who have sung this hymn, believed every word, and lived out the blessing of its truth.

It's 4am in the morning here in Australia. I woke with this lovely hymn having featured in my dream, and with the lyrics on my heart. God bless the author and of course the dear Lord for saving me in the Summer of 1982. I'm standing on His promises at the age of 71.

I have been though a series of events since 2013 that have included the death of one son in 2015, other son in 2016, death of granddaughter last March, also a niece and 2 nephews. The pain sometimes wants to smother me, so I go to praise music. I am feeling the peace as this plays on and on. The burden is lifting.

Today 18th September 2017, as I woke up for quiet time, the hymn was the first that pop from my spirit!

Glory to God for the blessedness a hymnal as this! God bless and the composer!

I stand on His promises as none of His word will return voided without accomplishing that which it was sent forth!

God promised to bless Abraham and through him nations. Galatians 3 makes me see how I got connected to these blessings. Today I'm bold to say Abraham's blessings are mine. I'm standing on God's promises. Hallelujah!!! What a wonderful hymn

Been sick for awhile with Brain Tumor. They operated. Was unable to get it all out. Now other medical problems.

My prayer is my life completely in the Hands of my Saviour.
