Inspired by . . . Hymns of Faith: Standing On the Promises

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. (2 Cor 1:20)

It has been noted that the phrase "fear not" appears in the bible 365 times. One for each day of the year. We all make promises. Yet even our well-intentioned promises are easily broken.

God's promises never fail.

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.

His promises are not simply emotional crutches, rather these Truths from His word are powerful assurances that help us navigate daily life and give us hope for the future.

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.

The author and composer of this hymn, Russell Kelso Carter, was a prolific writer, professor, Methodist minister, athlete, sheep rancher, and even a practicing physician in his later life.

No doubt, Carter's versatility, and success rest solely on his dependence upon God's promises.  As does ours.
