“The Lord will give grace and glory.” -Psalm 84:11

Grace is what we need just now, and it is to be had freely. What can be freer than a gift? Today we shall receive sustaining, strengthening, sanctifying, satisfying grace. He has given daily grace until now, and as for the future, that grace is still sufficient. If we have but little grace the fault must lie in ourselves; for the Lord is not straitened, neither is He slow to bestow it in abundance. We may ask for as much as we will and never fear a refusal. He giveth liberally and upbraideth not.

The Lord may not give gold, but He will give grace: He may not give gain, but He will give grace. He will certainly send us trial, but He will give grace in proportion thereto. We may be called to labor and to suffer, but with the call there will come all the grace required;

What an “end” is that in the text—”and glory!” We do not need glory yet, and we are not yet fit for it; but we shall have it in due order. After we have eaten the bread of grace, we shall drink the wine of glory. We must go through the holy, which is grace, to the holiest of all, which is glory. These words and glory are enough to make a man dance for joy. A little while—a little while, and then glory forever!

“For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.” -2 Corinthians 1:5

God blessing you with the grace of His comfort should not be confused with him making your life comfortable. The God of all Comfort will lead you into what is uncomfortable in pursuit of what is best. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” -John 13:34

God’s plan for your relationships is simple, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Are you living inside of His plan? There’s enabling grace that’s yours in Christ Jesus, so you can actually live and love this way.  -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.2.2018

“He hath given meat unto them that fear Him: He will ever be mindful of His covenant.” -Psalm 111:5

Those who fear God need not fear want. Through all these long years the Lord has always found meat for His own children, whether they have been in the wilderness, or by the brook Cherith, or in captivity, or in the midst of famine. Hitherto the Lord has given us day by day our daily bread, and we doubt not that He will continue to feed us till we want no more.

As to the higher and greater blessings of the covenant of grace, He will never cease to supply them as our case demands. He is mindful that He made the covenant and never acts as if He regretted it. He is mindful of it when we provoke Him to destroy us. He is mindful to love us, keep us, and comfort us, even as He engaged to do. He is mindful of every jot and tittle of His engagements, never suffering one of His words to fall to the ground.

We are sadly unmindful of our God, but He is graciously mindful of us. He cannot forget His Son who is the surety of the covenant, nor His Holy Spirit who actively carries out the covenant, nor His own honor, which is bound up with the covenant. Hence the foundation of God standeth sure, and no believer shall lose his divine inheritance, which is his by a covenant of salt.

Today you can choose to permit your heart to complain or you can give yourself to consider the amazing catalog of blessings, which you could not have earned or deserved, that are yours by grace. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 8.22.2018

“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” -Philippians 2:5-8

“Grace means God moving heaven and earth to save sinners who could not lift a finger to save themselves.” -J. I. Packer

Scripture at Sunrise 7.18.2018

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. -2 Corinthians 12:9

“I am afraid that all the grace that I have got of my comfortable and easy times and happy hours, might almost lie on a penny. But the good that I have received of my sorrows, and pains, and griefs, is altogether incalculable.” -Charles H. Spurgeon
