Scripture at Sunrise 6.30.2014

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | 1 Samuel 27:1-12
Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD! -Psalm 27:14

David was feeling like God had forgotten about him. He was depressed, stopped serving, and went into survival mode, seeking only self-preservation.

When you’re depressed, go to a friend who trusts in the Lord. Ask that friend to pray with you and for you. Confide in them and get their perspective of where you are. Don’t be quick to make a decision when you’re depressed. Pray and ponder. Most importantly, wait on the Lord.

Scripture at Sunrise 6.26.2014

“The LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.” -Numbers 6:25

If I have the smile of God, all other frowns are inconsequential. -Tim Keller on Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 6.25.2014

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

Worship is no longer worship when it reflects the culture around us more than the Christ within us. -A.W. Tozer

Scripture at Sunrise 6.24.2014

And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered, The Lord is able to give thee much more than this. -2 Chronicles 25:9

If you have made a mistake, bear the loss of it; but do not act contrary to the will of the Lord. The Lord can give you much more than you are likely to lose; and if He does not, will you begin bargaining and chaffering with God. The king of Judah had hired an army from idolatrous Israel, and he was commanded to send home the fighting men because the Lord was not with them. He was willing to send away the host, only he grudged paying the hundred talents for nothing. Oh, for shame! If the Lord will give the victory without the hirelings, surely it was a good bargain to pay their wages and to be rid of them.

Be willing to lose money for conscience’ sake, for peace’s sake, for Christ’s sake. Rest assured that losses for the Lord are not losses. Even in this life they are more than recompensed: in some cases the Lord prevents any loss from happening. As to our immortal life, what we lose for Jesus is invested in heaven. Fret not at apparent disaster but listen to the whisper, “The Lord is able to give thee much more than this.”

 And being in an agony He prayed more earnestly; and His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. -Luke 22:44

Scripture at Sunrise 6.19.2014

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” -Romans 15:13

“Faith is the refusal to panic.” —David Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 6.18.2014

“But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8

We sinned for no reason but an incomprehensible lack of love, & He saved us for no reason but an incomprehensible excess of love. -P Kreeft

Scripture at Sunrise 6.17.2014

For the Lord your God is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. -Deuteronomy 20:4

We have no enemies but the enemies of God. Our fights are not against men but against spiritual wickednesses. We war with the devil and the blasphemy and error and despair which he brings into the field of battle. We fight with all the armies of sin — impurity, drunkenness, oppression, infidelity, and ungodliness. With these we contend earnestly, but not with sword or spear; the weapons of our warfare are not carnal.

Jehovah, our God, abhors everything which is evil, and, therefore, He goeth with us to fight for us in this crusade. He will save us, and He will give us grace to war a good warfare and win the victory. We may depend upon it that if we are on God’s side God is on our side. With such an august ally the conflict is never in the least degree doubtful. It is not that truth is mighty and must prevail but that might lies with the Father who is almighty, with Jesus who has all power in heaven and in earth, and with the Holy Spirit who worketh His will among men.

Soldiers of Christ, gird on your armor. Strike home in the name of the God of holiness, and by faith grasp His salvation. Let not this day pass without striking a blow for Jesus and holiness.

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