Scripture after Sunrise 1.20.2020

“For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.” -Philemon 7

Do people sense the goodness and greatness and presence of God when you come around? Does your life bring joy and comfort to other people’s lives? Does it bring consolation (rest) to others? Only through Christ can this happen.

Scripture at Sunrise 11.5.2019

“I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls; which I have made.” -Isaiah 57:16

Our heavenly Father seeks our instruction, not our destruction. His contention with us has a kind intention toward us. He will not be always in arms against us. We think the Lord is long in His chastisements, but that is because we are short in our patience. His compassion endureth forever, but not His contention. The night may drag its weary length along, but it must in the end give place to cheerful day. As contention is only for a season, so the wrath which leads to it is only for a small moment. The Lord loves His chosen too well to be always angry with them.

If He were to deal with us always as He does sometimes, we should faint outright and go down hopelessly to the gates of death. Courage, dear heart! The Lord will soon end His chiding. Bear up, for the Lord will bear you up and bear you through. He who made you knows how frail you are and how little you can bear. He will handle tenderly that which He has fashioned so delicately. Therefore, be not afraid because of the painful present, for it hastens to a happy future. He that smote you will heal you; His little wrath shall be followed by great mercies.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 9.2.2019

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.” -Romans 8:28

Life gets tough. When you are waiting and thinking about the unknown or what could be, you can become anxious and worried. Don’t think upon the unknown. Concentrate on what you DO know: God is love. God is good. He is working all things together for your good. Focus on what you do know and you will have peace.
