Scripture at Sunrise 9.11.2018

“Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.” -Deuteronomy 28:6

The blessings of the law are not canceled. Jesus confirmed the promise when He bore the penalty. If I keep the commands of my Lord, I may appropriate this promise without question.

This day I will come in to my house without fear of evil tidings, and I will come in to my closet expecting to hear good news from my Lord. I will not be afraid to come in unto myself by self-examination, nor to come in to my affairs by a diligent inspection of my business. I have a good deal of work to do indoors, within my own soul; oh, for a blessing upon it all, the blessing of the Lord Jesus, who has promised to abide with me.

I must also go out. Timidity makes me wish that I could stay within doors and never go into the sinful world again. But I must go out in my calling, and I must go out that I may be helpful to my brethren and useful to the ungodly. I must be a defender of the faith and an assailant of evil. Oh, for a blessing upon my going out this day! Lord, let me go where Thou leadest, on Thy errands, under Thy command, and in the power of Thy Spirit.

Lord Jesus, turn in with me and be my guest; and then walk out with me and cause my heart to burn while You speak with me by the way.

Scripture at Sunrise 9.6.2018

“For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son…” -Romans 8:29

God daily uses the brokenness of the world around you as a tool of His transforming grace. Your present comfort is not His primary focus, your progressive transformation is. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.5.2018

“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

“If I look at the world, I will conform to ways of the world. If I look at the Word, I will conform to the will of God.” -A.W. Tozer

Scripture at Sunrise 9.4.2018

“But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.” -Hosea 1:7

Precious word. Jehovah Himself will deliver His people in the greatness of His mercy, but He will not do it by the ordinary means, Men are slow to render to God the glory due unto His name. If they go to battle with sword and bow and win the victory, they ought to praise their God; yet they do not, but begin to magnify their own right arm and glory in their horses and horsemen. For this reason our Jehovah often determines to save His people without second means, that all the honor may be to Himself alone.

Look, then, my heart, to the Lord alone and not to man. Expect to see God all the more clearly when there is no one else to look to. If I have no friend, no adviser, no one at my back, let me be none the less confident if I can feel that the Lord Himself is on my side; yea, let me be glad if He gives victory without battle, as the text seems to imply. Why do I ask for horses and horsemen if Jehovah Himself has mercy upon me and lifts up His arm for my defense! Why need I bow or sword if God will save? Let me trust and not be afraid from this day forth and for evermore. Amen.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 9.3.2018

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in My love.” -John 15:9
If you feel like your love for God is fading, focus on His love for you. If you focus on His love for you, your love for Him will grow. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon
