Scripture at Sunrise 12.4.2018

He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” -Psalm 91:4

A condescending simile indeed! Just as a hen protects her brood and allows them to nestle under her wings, so will the Lord defend His people and permit them to hide away in Him. Have we not seen the little chicks peeping out from under the mother’s feathers? Have we not heard their little cry of contented joy? In this way let us shelter ourselves in our God and feel overflowing peace in knowing that He is guarding us.

While the Lord covers us, we trust. It would be strange if we did not. How can we distrust when Jehovah Himself becomes house and home, refuge and rest to us?

This done, we go out to war in His name and enjoy the same guardian care. We need shield and buckler, and when we implicitly trust God, even as the chick trusts the hen, we find His truth arming us from head to foot. The Lord cannot lie; He must be faithful to His people; His promise must stand. This sure truth is all the shield we need. Behind it we defy the fiery darts of the enemy.

Come, my soul, hide under those great wings, lose thyself among those soft feathers! How happy thou art!

Scripture at Sunrise 1.10.2017

“He that watereth shall be watered also himself.” -Proverbs 11:25

If I carefully consider others, God will consider me, and in some way or other He will recompense me. Let me consider the poor, and the Lord will consider me. Let me look after little children, and the Lord will treat me as His child. Let me feed His flock, and He will feed me. Let me water His garden, and He will make a watered garden of my soul. This is the Lord’s own promise; be it mine to fulfill the condition and then to expect its fulfillment.

I may care about myself till I grow morbid; I may watch over my own feelings till I feel nothing; and I may lament my own weakness till I grow almost too weak to lament. It will be far more profitable for me to become unselfish and out of love to my Lord Jesus begin to care for the souls of those around me. My tank is getting very low; no fresh rain comes to fill it; what shall I do? I will pull up the plug and let its contents run out to water the withering plants around me. What do I see? My cistern seems to fill as it flows. A secret spring is at work. While all was stagnant, the fresh spring was sealed; but as my stock Rows out to water others the Lord thinketh upon me. Hallelujah!

Scripture at Sunrise 5.28.2012

Sunday Morning |Pastor Steve Wainright | Luke 5:17-26

“But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the man who was paralyzed—’I say to you, rise, pick up your bed and go home.'” -Luke 5:24

The friends of the paralytic showed such great love for him that they did whatever it took to get him help, even if it meant cutting a hole in a roof and lowering him down. They deeply cared for him. How much are you willing to sacrifice to get a friend to Christ? (God cares, too. He cares so much that He sent His only Son for us. Christ cared so much that He willingly went to the cross.) Are you loving like that? Are you caring like that?

Before healing the paralyzed man, Jesus dealt with the man’s most serious problem first: his spiritual condition. He healed the man to confirm that He had power to forgive sins. The doubly healed man went home glorifying God on his way. Does your life show that your sins have been forgiven?
