“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” -Romans 8:15

The gospel changes heaven’s courtroom proceedings from a criminal trial to an adoption ceremony. -Matt Smethurst via Twitter

“But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine.” -Isaiah 43:1

“The devil knows your name but calls you by your sin. God knows your sin but calls you by your name.” –@MattSmethurst

Scripture at Sunrise 12.10.2019

“But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.” -Exodus 23:22

The Lord Christ in the midst of His people is to be acknowledged and obeyed. He is the vice-regent of God and speaks in the Father’s name, and it is ours implicitly and immediately to do as He commands. We shall lose the promise if we disregard the precept.

To full obedience how large the blessing! The Lord enters into a league with His people, offensive and defensive. He will bless those who bless us and curse those who curse us. God will go heart and soul with His people and enter in deepest sympathy into their position. What a protection this affords us! We need not concern ourselves about our adversaries when we are assured that they have become the adversaries of God. If Jehovah has taken up our quarrel, we may leave the foemen in His hands.

So far as our own interest is concerned we have no enemies; but for the cause of truth and righteousness we take up arms and go forth to conflict. In this sacred war we are allied with the eternal God, and if we carefully obey the law of our Lord Jesus, He is engaged to put forth all His power on our behalf. Wherefore we fear no man.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 12.9.2019

“And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.” -Hosea 13:2

Once sin starts, it starts swelling. It is serious and is not something to dabble in. If you start getting into sin just a little bit, it will wrap around you tighter and tighter until you are bound. However, God’s Word offers hope. He is your Help.

-Steve Wainright (excerpt from Wednesday night’s sermon from Hosea 13: Sin Will Swell)

“Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!” -Psalm 27:14

God often calls us to wait for His promises.

Noah – 120 yrs for promised rain

Abraham – 25 yrs for the promised son

Joseph – 22 yrs for the promised dream

Simeon – his whole life for promised Messiah

What promise are you trusting God for?

He may seem slow, but He’s faithful
