Have you ever stare into a situation in the face and wondered how you came to stand where you are? It is times like these that we need the promises of God. We need to read them and we also need to recite them, pray them, and believe them.
One truth I am constantly reminding myself of when I am standing on the unconditional promises of God is that He does not change as people do. God does not promise something and then remove it because we displease Him. God’s promises are not reliant on our actions or the condition of the world around us.
You can stand firm in your faith because God is immovable.
Praying the promises of GodThe promises of God are Yes and Amen

What does it mean to stand on the promises of God?
My pastor always talks about praying Bible verses. This is something I completely embrace and you will understand why this practice is helpful. With this in mind. I pray the promises of God.
One day while dealing with my seasonal affective disorder. I began praying I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 says breathe in, pray out, breathe in pray out.
I could feel myself gaining strength in knowing I have light and warmth in my heart and that I would get through the bad days if I focused on the light and warmth of God I can learn how to be at peace in the winter as well as the warmer months.
You may think are the promises of God really for me.
As a believer of God, you are covered in the blood, wrapped in grace, and are written in the palm of His hand.
”For no matter how many promises God has made they are Yes I Christ. And so through Him the Amen is spoken by us to the Glory of God” (Cortinthians 1:20.)
The definition of Amen is ’so be it.’ That should be our attitude when standing firm on the promises of God. God will come through. So be it. God has it forsaken me. So let it be God have forgiven me. So let it be I am clean. So let it be.
How many promises are there from God? The Bible is full of God’s promises. So many, in fact that I thought I would narrow it down and focus on 7.
Sin separates us from God. Sometimes we feel dirty to come before Him. Sometimes pride prevents it. In any case, when we are ready to accept this promise of God, He is ready to give it.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. ( John 1:19)
I even I am He who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake and remember your sins no more. ( Isaiah 43:25)
God remembers your sin no more. It is finished. You have been washed clean by the blood of the Lamb.
Stand on His promises.
