Scripture at Sunrise 7.12.2017

But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. -2 Corinthians 12:9-10
No believer is too weak to be used mightily by God except those who are too dependent on their own strength. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 11.11.2013

Sunday Evening| Pastor Steve Wainright | 1 Samuel 14
Jonathan said to the young man who carried his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised. It may be that the Lord will work for us, for nothing can hinder the Lord from saving by many or by few.” -1 Samuel 14:6

The second part of that verse is the whole kernel of truth on which Jonathan’s courage was based: that the Lord may work! God doesn’t need 80,000 people in order to conquer 80,000 people. Jonathan had faith that God use just him and his armor-bearer to conquer thousands of Philistines…and He did just that.

The less strength you have, the more glory God shows.

Are you making your life count for the glory of God like Jonathan or have you parked it under a pomegranate tree like Saul?
