Scripture at Sunrise 8.22.2017

“Surely the wrath of man shall praise you; the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt.” -Psalm 76:10

Wicked men will be wrathful. Their anger we must endure as the badge of our calling, the token of our separation from them: if we were of the world, the world would love its own. Our comfort is that the wrath of man shall be made to redound to the glory of God. When in their wrath the wicked crucified the Son of God they were unwittingly fulfilling the divine purpose, and in a thousand cases the willfulness of the ungodly is doing the same. They think themselves free, but like convicts in chains they are unconsciously working out the decrees of the Almighty.

The devices of the wicked are overruled for their defeat. They act in a suicidal way and baffle their own plottings. Nothing will come of their wrath which can do us real harm. When they burned the martyrs, the smoke which blew from the stake sickened men of popery more than anything else.

Meanwhile, the Lord has a muzzle and a chain for bears. He restrains the more furious wrath of the enemy. He is like a miller who holds back the mass of the water in the stream, and what He does allow to flow He uses for the turning of His wheel. Let us not sigh, but sing. All is well, however hard the wind blows.

Sunday Evening | His Time John 7:1-6
“Jesus said to them, ‘My time has not yet come, but your time is always here.'” -John 7:6

Realize that what is taking place in your life right now is not accidental. Your sovereign Savior is directing your life and fulfilling His plan. Don’t ever believe that things are “just happening”.

“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” -Psalm 139:23-24
When God exposes your sin it’s not an act of judgment, but of rescue. He is producing in you a desire to run to Him. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 8.16.2017

“I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from fall your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes and be careful to obey My rules.” -Ezekiel 36:24-27

Notice the pronouns. God doesn’t tell them to do anything. He says He’s going to do it. He takes a dead sinner and transplants their old stony heart with a heart of flesh. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon from Ezekiel 36

Scripture at Sunrise 8.15.2017

“And whatsoever ye shall ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” -John 14:13

It is not every believer who has yet learned to pray in Christ’s name. To ask not only for His sake, but in His name, as authorized by Him, is a high order of prayer. We would not dare to ask for some things in that blessed name, for it would be a wretched profanation of it; but when the petition is so clearly right that we dare set the name of Jesus to it, then it must be granted.

Prayer is all the more sure to succeed because it is for the Father’s glory through the Son. It glorifies His truth, His faithfulness, His power, His grace, The granting of prayer, when offered in the name of Jesus, reveals the Father’s love to Him, and the honor which He has put upon Him. The glory of Jesus and of the Father are so wrapped up together that the grace which magnifies the one magnifies the other. The channel is made famous through the fullness of the fountain, and the fountain is honored through the channel by which it flows. If the answering of our prayers would dishonor our Lord, we would not pray; but since in this thing He is glorified, we will pray without ceasing in that dear name in which God and His people have a fellowship of delight.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.14.2017

Wednesday Evening | The Gospel in Ezekiel | Ezekiel 36
“But when they came to the nations, wherever they came, they profaned My holy Name, in that people said of them, ‘These are the people of the LORD, and yet they had to go out of His land.’ But I had concern for My holy Name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations to which they came.” -Ezekiel 36:20-21

These people who went to other nations polluted the Name of God by their lifestyle. Where they went and how they lived brought shame to God’s Name.
How do you represent God’s great Name by the words you speak and things you do?

Scripture at Sunrise 8.9.2017

“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” -Romans 8:19-21

Things are decaying all around us, but this creation will be delivered from this bondage of corruption when God unveils the glory that’s in His children. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon from Romans 8
