Scripture at Sunrise 06.02.2022

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

“The only reason that we are ever scared of the will of God is because we cannot see the grace that will be there.” -Elisabeth Elliot (via Twitter)

Scripture at Sunrise 06.01.2022

For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” -Isaiah 41:13

It is not the strength of your faith that saves you, but the strength of Him upon whom you rely. -Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 05.31.2022

“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33

My Lord’s words are true as to the tribulation. I have my share of it beyond all doubt. The flail is not hung up out of the way, nor can I hope that it will be laid aside so long as I lie upon the threshing floor, How can I look to be at home in the enemy’s country, joyful while in exile, or comfortable in a wilderness? This is not my rest. This is the place of the furnace, and the forge, and the hammer. My experience tallies with my Lord’s words.

I note how He bids me “be of good cheer.” Alas! I am far too apt to be downcast. My spirit soon sinks when I am sorely tried. But I must not give way to this feeling. When my Lord bids me cheer up I must not dare to be cast down.

What is the argument which He uses to encourage me? Why, it is His own victory. He says, “I have overcome the world.” His battle was much more severe than mine. I have not yet resisted unto blood. Why do I despair of overcoming? See, my soul, the enemy has been once overcome. I fight with a beaten foe. O world, Jesus has already vanquished thee; and in me, by His grace, He will overcome thee again. Therefore am I of good cheer and sing unto my conquering Lord.

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

Summing Up Sunday 05.30.2022

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.” -1 Peter 4:7

When you become aware of Jesus Christ and that His coming is imminent, it affects your whole life. Live in the light of His imminent return. It can happen at any moment.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “In Light of His Coming” from 1 Peter 4:7-11)

Scripture at Sunrise 05.26.2022

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:” -Psalm 103:2

“Habits of complaint tend to beat down the growth of hope. Counting your blessings encourages hope, numbering your complaints deflates it. –Paul Tripp

Scripture at Sunrise 05.25.2022

“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.” -Luke 16:10

The way to do a great deal, is to keep on doing a little. The way to do nothing at all, is to be continually resolving that you will do everything. -Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 05.24.2022

“One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the Lord your God, He it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.” -Joshua 23:10

Why count heads? One man with God is a majority though there be a thousand on the other side. Sometimes our helpers may be too many for God to work with them, as was the case with Gideon, who could do nothing till he had increased his forces by thinning out their numbers. But the Lord’s hosts are never too few. When God would found a nation, He called Abram alone and blessed him. When He would vanquish proud Pharaoh, He used no armies, but only Moses and Aaron. The “one-man ministry,” as certain wise men call it, has been far more used of the Lord than trained bands with their officers. Did all the Israelites together slay so many as Samson alone? Saul and his hosts slew their thousands but David his ten thousands.

The Lord can give the enemy long odds and yet vanquish him. If we have faith, we have God with us, and what are multitudes of men? One shepherd’s dog can drive before him a flock of sheep. If the Lord sent thee, O my brother, His strength will accomplish His divine purpose. Wherefore, rely on the promise, and be very courageous. 

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

Summing Up Sunday 05.23.2022

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” -Isaiah 55:8-9

God does what is best. Therefore, we walk by faith and not by answers that give us understanding.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “The Rest of Your Time in the Flesh” from 1 Peter 4:1-6)

For the Glory of God
