Hold On To The Promises

Published on February 26, 2013 by in Me, Reflections

Promises — Sanctus Real

Sometimes it’s hard to keep believing
In what you can’t see
That everything happens for a reason
Even the worst life brings
If you’re reaching for an answer
And you don’t know what to pray
Just open up the pages
Let His word be your strength

And hold on to the promises
Hold on to the promises
Jesus is alive so hold tight
Hold on to the promises

All things work for the good
Of those who love God
He holds back nothing that will heal you
Not even His own Son
His love is everlasting
His faithfulness unending
Oh, if God is for us who can be against us
So if you feel weak


Neither life, nor death
Could Separate us
From the eternal love
Of our God who saves us


I’ve never struggled with believing or having faith in God, but I know all too well the feeling of clinging desperately to His promises.  The feeling that His promises HAVE to be true, because otherwise I could not stand to go on in this painful, cruel world.  Of clinging to His promises when there seems to be absolutely no hope.  The promise that He has a plan for me.  The promise that He is working for my good, even when the road ahead seems too dark and bleak.  The promise that I MUST be worth SOMEthing if Jesus was willing to die for me.  The feeling of not knowing what to pray but, “God, help…PLEASE!”

From as far back as I can remember, four truths (or promises) were taught to me over and over:  God created you, Jesus loves you, He has a plan for you, and He is ALWAYS faithful.  As I grew older, I found these truths not only in the things that I read and the things that I learned, I found them to be true over and over in my personal experiences as well.  Each time I found myself in that dark place, I could look back and see how He had always been there for me before, even when the way forward seemed impossible.

Are you in that dark place?  Are you questioning your faith?  Are you searching for something, anything, that would make sense out of this senseless world?  If so, I want you to know that God created you, Jesus loves you, He has a plan for you, and He is ALWAYS faithful.  Cling to His promises!  Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you (James 4:8).  There is so much Biblical truth in this song!  Listen to it over and over and be comforted in knowing that almost every line is a promise to you straight from God.
