We all face storms. We all have struggles. We all face trials in this life that we would never have asked for.
I’ve lived in this fallen, broken world long enough to know we are all faced with storms. Storms are a part of life as we know it. While we look toward heaven with eagerness and anticipation and hope, we must also face the storms of life with the confidence and hope that God alone is sovereign and He is faithful and true.
Each of us are faced with various storms. No two storms are the same. Some face physical storms in the form of cancer and lifelong disease. Some face emotional storms that bring depression and anxiety on a regular basis. Some face relationship storms and are dealing with rebellious children, prodigal children, divorce or years of family arguments.
While I may not have experienced the storm you are facing, I have faced my own storms. And I am learning that I simply must fix my eyes on Jesus during the storm or I will drown in the flood of it all. These verses that I want to share with you help me to fix my eyes on Jesus and to remember truth and hope in the midst of despair.
We must stand on the promises of God and tell our hearts that He is faithful.
Standing on the Promises
hymn lyrics by Russell Carter
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 on the promises of God my Savior;
I’m standing on the promises of God.
