Scripture at Sunrise 8.28.2012

As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me. -Psalm 55:16

Yes, I must and will pray. What else can I do! What better can I do? Betrayed, forsaken, grieved, baffled, O my Lord, I will call upon Thee. My Ziklag is in ashes, and men speak of stoning me; but I encourage my heart in the Lord, who will bear me through this trial as He has borne me through so many others. Jehovah shall save me; I am sure He will, and I declare my faith.

The Lord and no one else shall save me. I desire no other helper and would not trust in an arm of flesh even if I could. I will cry to Him evening, and morning, and noon, and I will cry to no one else, for He is all sufficient.

How He will save me I cannot guess; but He will do it, I know. He will do it in the best and surest way, and He will do it in the largest, truest, and fullest sense. Out of this trouble and all future troubles the great I AM will bring me as surely as He lives; and when death comes and all the mysteries of eternity follow thereon, still will this be true: “the Lord shall save me.” This shall be my song all through this autumn day. Is it not as a ripe apple from the tree of life? I will feed upon it. How sweet it is to my taste!

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | Joshua 22:1-34 | Listen
“For He Himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility.” -Ephesians 2:14

Since Christ is our peace, we can pursue peace with others. Seek peace by talking it out and listening. Don’t ever assume what someone else is thinking or their motives.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.22.2012

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” -Romans 12:2

Only through God’s Word are our minds remolded and our values renewed…God’s Word must be so strongly fixed in our minds that it becomes the dominant influence in our thoughts, our attitudes, and our actions. -Jerry Bridges in “The Pursuit of Holiness

Scripture at Sunrise 8.20.2012

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | Luke 7:1-10 | Listen
When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed Him, said, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.” Luke 7:9

Jesus marveled at the centurion’s faith. The centurion recognized the sovereignty of Christ and realized his own unworthiness. Faith never produces pride, but always produces humility. Our faith is only as strong as the object of our faith.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.21.2012

“For His anger endureth but a moment; in His favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. -Psalm 30:5

A moment under our Father’s anger seems very long, and yet it is but a moment after all. If we grieve His Spirit, we cannot look for His smile; but He is a God ready to pardon, and He soon puts aside all remembrance of our faults. When we faint and are ready to die because of His frown, His favor puts new life into us.

This verse has another note of the semi-quaver kind. Our weeping night soon turns into joyous day. Brevity is the mark of mercy in the hour of the chastisement of believers. The Lord loves not to use the rod on His chosen; He gives a blow or two, and all is over; yea, and the life and the joy, which follow the anger and the weeping, more than make amends for the salutary sorrow.

Come, my heart, begin thy hallelujahs! Weep not all through the night, but wipe thine eyes in anticipation of the morning. These tears are dews which mean us as much good as the sunbeams of the morrow. Tears clear the eyes for the sight of God in His grace and make the vision of His favor more precious. A night of sorrow supplies those shades of the pictures by which the highlights are brought out with distinctness. All is well.
