Scripture at Sunrise 12.28.2021

“He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” -Hebrews 13:5

Several times in the Scriptures the Lord hath said this. He has often repeated it to make our assurance doubly sure. Let us never harbor a doubt about it. In itself the promise is specially emphatic. In the Greek it has five negatives, each one definitely shutting out the possibility of the Lord’s ever leaving one of His people so that he can justly feel forsaken of his God. This priceless Scripture does not promise us exemption from trouble, but it does secure us against desertion. We may be called to traverse strange ways, but we shall always have our Lord’s company, assistance, and provision. We need not covet money, for we shall always have our God, and God is better than gold; His favor is better than fortune.

We ought surely to be content with such things as we have, for he who has God has more than all the world besides. What can we have beyond the Infinite? What more can we desire than almighty Goodness.

Come, my heart; if God says He will never leave thee nor forsake thee, be thou much in prayer for grace that thou mayest never leave thy Lord, nor even for a moment forsake His ways.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.17.2011

“Hear, O Israel, today you are drawing near for battle against your enemies: let not your heart faint. Do not fear or panic or be in dread of them, for the Lord your God is He who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.” -Deuteronomy 20:3-4

Sunday Evening | Deuteronomy 20 | Pastor Steve Wainright
The  Israelites were going to see the inhabitants of the land with chariots and horses (vs. 1). We don’t trust in those things, but in the Lord. (Psalm 20:7) Often times, we walk by sight, which shows our unbelief in God. We must fight by faith. He’s greater than all our problems. (Hebrews 13:5- If you have Him, you don’t need anything else.)

We are in a spiritual warfare (2 Corinthians 10:4). Be equipped to fight Satan with the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10).

Do not be afraid!

The children of Israel were told not to charge into battle because the priest needed to remind them of some things first (vs. 2), such as “Don’t let your heart faint” (vs. 3). We are fighting from victory unto victory because the One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world!

Peace is offered through Christ’s sacrifice to those who are at enmity with God. (Ephesians 2:13-18)

Please please please listen to this one! This little summary doesn’t cover even a fourth of the goodness in this message!
