Russell Carter was a star athlete and scholar at the military academy. After several years as a teacher, coach, musician, songwriter and pastor, he went to medical school. But at age 30, his health became critical. Nothing could be done. Carter called upon God for help and healing. He mined the Bible for promises of God, claiming them and praying them back to the Lord. After several months, his heart was healed, and he lived another 49 healthy years. His song, “Standing on the Promises,” became an integral part of his life.
God will be with you and will bring you again to the land of your fathers.
While dying, the patriarch Jacob blessed his family with the promise of return to the land of God’s covenant with Abraham. It took another 400 years, but the promise was kept. The Bible contains hundreds of promises. Count on them, because when you rely on the promises of God in uncertain times, you can face the future with confidence and an optimistic outlook.
Scripture says the promises of God find their “Yes” in Him (II Corinthians 1:20). Search His Word today and find the promise that meets your need. Pray for America’s leaders to find God’s tender heart and then stand upon the promises He has given.
