Standing On the Promises

2 Corinthians 1:20King James Version (KJV)

20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

Standing on the Promises
Anyone who grew up in church probably recognizes that refrain...'standing on the promises of Christ my King'....even without knowing all the words, the tune is likely playing in your head now.
As children, we hear these songs and they are just that...songs.  Music we hear at church.  But, as time often does, given enough time, these are no longer songs.  They become reminders to our spirit of the character of God...of the truth of who God is.
Standing on the promises becomes less a refrain and more a way of life.  No, a way to life. God is faithful in His promises.  He speaks clearly and directly and there is no changing or shadow of turning in His character.  He speaks and 'it', whatever 'it'  It is as He speaks it.  
So it is with the love God has professed for each and every one of us.  'For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son' (Jhn 3:16).  Love not only spoken, but demonstrated...paid for even with blood. 
Stand on the promises.  Stand on the ones spoken silently in your heart.  Stand on the ones pronounced to a group that pertain directly to you.  His yea is yea and His nay is nay.  There is no 'second guessing' with God.  His love, His justice, everything about Him is pure and worthy of trust.
Stand on the promises.

John 3:14-21King James Version (KJV)

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
