Standing On The Promises
To stand on the promises of God’s Word is to walk in a way that is compatible with the character and nature of the Holy Spirit. There is never a time when it can be said that the Holy Spirit or Christ Jesus did not validate what God had said. We can see that Jesus was so settled in His relationship with the Father that He would speak or act upon the Word of God without hesitation. In fact, He would not even venture to speak nor act on His own.
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. John 8:28 (KJV) (also Joh. 5:19; 8:38)
This shows absolute trust in the promises and directives of God the Father. The record of the Holy Spirit is the same:
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. John 16:13 (KJV)
What every one of us who are born-again believers needs to consider is that, if we would place the same trust in the Word of God that the Godhead (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) does, we could do what Jesus did. Isn’t this what Jesus told those who followed Him?
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12 (KJV)
Let’s take a walk in the anointing and stand on the promises found in God’s Word to us. It just could be that as we do, revival will come and sweep our land. God, who cannot lie, said in 2 Corinthians 6:16 “I will dwell in (you)” and “I will walk in (you).”
ith a promise like that what is impossible now? – Selah
