Scripture at Sunrise 8.19.2019

“But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” -Job 23:10

Sometimes the lonely places are where God puts us so we can be alone with Him. There are times you might feel all alone, discouraged or depressed, but God is at work. That’s His preparation time. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon:“God’s Preparation Time”

Scripture at Sunrise 8.15.2019

ThursdayTheologicalTweet

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” -2 Peter 3:18

If sanctification is progressive, shouldn’t Christians grow kinder, more relentlessly gracious, more lavishly loving as we age? I so desperately want to do this well and bless, encourage, and grace others rather than rant and rage. -Hershael York via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 8.14.2019

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” -Proverbs 3:5-6

God knows you better than you do.
God loves you more than you do.
God’s more committed to your ultimate joy than you are.

Trust him.

-Sam Allberry

Scripture at Sunrise 8.13.2019

It shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.” -Isaiah 65:24

Quick work this! The Lord hears us before we call and often answers us in the same speedy manner. Foreseeing our needs and our prayers, He so arranges providence that before the need actually arises He has supplied it, before the trial assails us He has armed us against it. This is the promptitude of omniscience, and we have often seen it exercised. Before we dreamed of the affliction which was coming, the strong consolation which was to sustain us under it had arrived. What a prayer-answering God we have!

The second clause suggests the telephone. Though God be in heaven and we upon earth, yet He makes our word, like His own word, to travel very swiftly. When we pray aright we speak into the ear of God. Our gracious Mediator presents our petitions at once, and the great Father hears them and smiles upon them. Grand praying this! Who would not be much in prayer when he knows that he has the ear of the King of kings? This day I will pray in faith, not only believing that I shall be heard, but that I am heard; not only that I shall be answered, but that I have the answer already. Holy Spirit, help me in this!

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

Scripture at Sunrise 8.12.2019

“But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience…” -2 Timothy 3:10-13

The way you live your life reflects your core beliefs. In this present evil age, we need men and women of faith who are willing to take a stand for truth and not back down. We need men and women who have godly character. Our young people need godly examples to imitate. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon “Needed: Godly Examples!”
