Child of God, look past the pain;
look past sin’s dreadful stain;
precious promises are yours,
through the blood of  Christ the Door.

Child of God, look past the strife;
look past the storms of life;
Christ to you has pledged His love;
you shall dwell with Him above.

Child of God, look on His Word;
look on the Words you’ve heard;
every single phrase is true;
every promise He will do.

Read God’s Holy Word!
Let your soul be stirred!
Every promise He will do!
Believe God's Word is true!

.....and Thou saidst, I will surely do thee good.....   Gen 32:12 

.....The attribute of God's faithfulness is a splendid horn of the altar to lay hold upon; but the promise, which has in it the attribute and something more, is a yet mightier holdfast-"Thou saidst, I will surely do thee good." And has He said, and shall He not do it?  "Let God be true, and every man a liar."  Shall not He be true? Shall He not keep His word?  Shall not every word that cometh out of His lips stand fast and be fulfilled? Solomon, at the opening of the temple, used this same mighty plea.  He pleaded with God to remember the word which He had  spoken to his father David, and to bless that place.  When a man gives a promissory note, his honor is engaged; he signs his hand, and he must discharge it when the due time comes, or else he loses credit.  It shall never be said that God dishonors His bills.  The credit of the Most High never was impeached, and never shall be.  He is punctual to the moment: He never is before His time, but He never is behind it.  Search God's word through, and compare it with the experience of God's people, and you shall find the two tally from the first to the last.  Many a hoary patriarch has said with Joshua, "Not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass."  If you have a divine promise, you need not plead it with an "if," you may urge it with certainty.  The Lord meant to fulfill the promise, or He would not have given it.  God does not give His words merely to quiet us, and to keep us hopeful for a while, with the intention of putting us off at last; but when He speaks, it is because He means to do as He has said.
