How to Stand on the Word

 God's word brings Stability to our life.
Matt 7:24-27

God's word is the final authority.
1 Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:4,5
Receive God's promise as already taking place.

Refuse doubt and unbelief.
Cast down doubt, praise God for your deliverance.
Mat 16:19; Mat 18:18

Refuse to believe what you see and feel.
2 Cor 5:7

Whose report will you believe?
Whose report will you believe? I will believe the report of the Lord. Isaiah 53:1

Meditate on God's Word.
Rom 10:17; Isaiah 40:31

Do not Fear
Luke 8:50; John 14:1; Ps 56:3,11; Rom 8:15

Praise God for the Answer.
Phil 4:6,7

Do not Waiver!
James 1:5,6; 1 Tim 6:12; Eph 6:12;
Reject doubt and chose to believe. 2 Cor 10:3-5
Use the sword to attack the enemy. Rebuke the devil with the word of God. Then praise God.

Speak what you Believe not what You See.
Mark 11:23,24; Matt 12:36; Prov 18:20,21;
Choose life by speaking the word.

Hebrews 10:23
"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering,
for He who promised is faithful;"

To stand on the Word of God is to confess the truth of the word in the midst of problems.
Quote the Scripture and state its truth. Read it again and thank God for its fulfilment in your life.
Rest in God that the promise of the Scripture is yours. Don't worry but instead trust in God.

God's Word will not return void.
Isaiah 55:11

When you stand on the word, when you bet your life on the promises of God, when you base your life on the direction of the Scriptures, you will not be disapointed. God will bring the answer. Romans 10:11

Don't tell Jesus about your problem, tell your problem about Jesus.
Quote Scripture, state the Scriptures that promise victory in your situation.

Know that as you go in service to Jesus you are walking in the Kingdom and God will answer your prayers. If you doubt if God will answer your prayers. Find the will of God and believe that.

2 Samuel 23:11,12
“Now after him was Shammah the son of Agee a Hararite. And the Philistines were gathered into a troop where there was a plot of ground full of lentils, and the people fled from the Philistines. 12 But he took his stand in the midst of the plot, defended it and struck the Philistines; and the Lord brought about a great victory.”

Take a stand and fight. How do we fight in the spirit? It is to take the Word of God and state it and believe it and live it and not the lie of the enemy. The lie of the enemy will tell us it can't be done. But with God all things are possible.

Fight on your knees for the promise God has given you. Don't accept the lie the enemy is saying. Fight for belief that what God has promised He will do. And when you get that belief, act on it. Act in faith.

Some would counter that God doesn't always answer.  But who are we going to believe? Those who doubt, or the Word of God? Romans 10:11”For the Scripture says, 'Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.'” Don't accept defeat, but instead stand and fight.

Some of this lesson came from:

Standing on the Promises - A great hymn of worship and trust in God.

  1. 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.
    • Refrain:
      Standing, standing,
      Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
      Standing, standing,
      I’m standing on the promises of God.
  2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
    When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
    By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  3. Standing on the promises I now can see
    Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
    Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  4. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
    Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
    Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  5. Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
    List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call,
    Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
    Standing on the promises of God.
