Standing on the Promises

Even though I can’t stand up physically on my feet, I do stand on the promises of God.  

Hi, this is Joni Eareckson Tada.  Even though I can’t stand up physically on my feet, I do stand on the promises of God.  Like 1John chapter 1:  "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness."  I stand on that every time I go to God to confess.  And here’s another one I stand on:  Jesus said, "I will never leave you or forsake you."  Hasn't that promise gotten you through a few dark nights?  And one of my favorite promises:  the Lord will fulfill His plans for your life.  He promises that to you, friend – and you know that God keeps His promises!  Deuteronomy 7:9 says, "Know therefore that the Lord thy God keeps His covenant to them that love Him..."  What promises are you standing on today?  Know this:  Each will have a happy fulfillment.  So stand on them today – it’s the firmest foundation you’ve got.
