“I Stand On Your Word” can be found on Jonathan Butler’s CD, Grace and Mercy.
“This album really speaks about optimism, faith, belief and hope, especially in the light of what everybody has been experiencing in the last two or three years.
There have been a lot of people losing their homes, their jobs, enduring the challenges that life brings. I’m hoping this album will bring hope to people. Songs like ‘Give it Up To God,’ ‘I Stand On Your Word,’ and ‘Who is Like the Lord’ were written from experiences that I’ve had to go through myself.
I believe God is right here with me right now and always, and I’m standing on his Word,” explained Butler. “His Word says all things are going to be good for me, so I’m standing on it. No matter the situation or circumstance, we need to believe that God will take care of us.”-Jonathan Butler
