“But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect…” -1 Peter 3:15

Every day you wake up to a war that, by grace, you do not battle on your own. It is the every-moment war for the rulership of you heart. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 7.18.2018

But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. -2 Corinthians 12:9

“I am afraid that all the grace that I have got of my comfortable and easy times and happy hours, might almost lie on a penny. But the good that I have received of my sorrows, and pains, and griefs, is altogether incalculable.” -Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 7.17.2018

“The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” -Daniel 11:32

“The Lord is a man of war, Jehovah is His Name.” Those who enlist under His banner shall have a Commander who will train them for the conflict and give them both vigor and valor. The times of which Daniel wrote were of the very worst kind, and then it was promised that the people of God would come out in their best colors: they would be strong and stout to confront the powerful adversary.

Oh, that we may know our God: His power, His faithfulness, His immutable love, and so may be ready to risk everything in His behalf. He is One whose character excites our enthusiasm and makes us willing to live and to die for Him. Oh, that we may know our God by familiar fellowship with Him; for then we shall become like Him and shall be prepared to stand up for truth and righteousness. He who comes forth fresh from beholding the face of God will never fear the face of man. If we dwell with Him, we shall catch the heroic spirit, and to us a world of enemies will be but as the drop of a bucket. A countless array of men, or even of devils, will seem as little to us as the nations are to God, and He counts them only as grasshoppers. Oh, to be valiant for truth in this day of falsehood.

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 7.16.2018

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” -Romans 8:1

Satan doesn’t want you to understand who you are in Christ. He will remind you of your failures and mistakes, but will never remind you that Christ has nailed your sins to the cross. –excerpt from Bro. Josh Wilson’s Sunday Morning Sermon

And He said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?” -Luke 9:23-25

Lord, keep me from wasting my life on something other than you. Don’t ever let me settle for less. -desiring God via Twitter
