Song Meditation: 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 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

Chorus

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,
Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call.
Resting in my Savior as my All in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

1st Stanza

What is the meaning of standing and promise?

Standing is, holding firmly, believing, trusting, or acknowledging the power or mightiness of God.
Promise is an assurance of occurrence of something that has not yet happened (2 Kings 10:30, 2Kings 15:12).

This Stanza reminds believers to base their faith on only the Promises of God.

2rd Stanza

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

This is a declaration of complete trust in the Lord’s Word. God fulfills his word (2 Kings 3: 18-19, 24-25, Isaiah 55:11).
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
Believers are sometimes faced with fear and doubt while waiting on God especially when one doesn’t see how the Lord will make things happen.
By the living Word of God I shall prevail

The word of the Lord is alive and active (Heb 4:12), the word of God is Jesus (John 1:1-5). Jesus enables us to prevail over fear and doubt so as to witness the manifestation of God’s promises. For He is, after all, the Word of God (Become flesh) who prevails over the storm.

3rd Stanza


Standing on the promises I now can see

When His promises start to materialize right before our eyes our faith in His Word is strengthened
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;

The blood of Jesus is ever powerful and sufficient enough to make a believer clean and free.
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,

In Christ, we are no longer slaves to fear and sin but we are children of God. (Gal 5:1, 2Cor 5:21, 1John 1:7, Eph 1:7)


4th Stanza


Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
This is God’s assurance of his constant eternal love to us (John 3:16). Nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:30-39).

Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword
The Holy Spirit is ever present to enable us to overcome the enemy ((Gal 15:16, 22, 25). He equips us with the tools (Sword) to fight appropriately


5th Stanza


Standing on the promises I shall not fall

We cannot go wrong when we hold firmly on to God’s promises (Isaiah 55:11).

Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call

In this journey we have to be spiritually alert so as to be able to hear and obey the Holy Spirit.

Resting in my Savior as my All in all

Psalms 23 clearly explains is statement.

Chorus:
This is a Christian’s declaration that they will only believe and trust God, the Maker of Heaven and earth.

Conclusion: This wonderful song reminds us of the strength of God’s promises and how His faithfulness can get us through the waiting seasons… and so dearest reader, what promises of the Lord are you standing on?
