Scripture at Sunrise 01.14.2021

“Remember the wondrous works that He has done, His miracles, and the judgments He uttered,” -Psalm 105:5

Rather than starting the new year, beating yourself up for what you failed to do, start by building yourself up by remembering what God has done for you. Honest confession comes easier when you’re basking in God’s unrelenting grace. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 01.13.2021

And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the beau shall be seen in the cloud.” -Genesis 9:14

Just now clouds are plentiful enough, but we are not afraid that the world will be destroyed by a deluge. We see the rainbow often enough to prevent our having any such fears. The covenant which the Lord made with Noah stands fast, and we have no doubts about it. Why, then, should we think that the clouds of’ trouble, which now darken our sky, will end in our destruction? Let us dismiss such groundless and dishonoring fears.

Faith always sees the bow of covenant promise whenever sense sees the cloud of affliction. God has a bow with which He might shoot out His arrows of destruction. But see, it is turned upward! It is a bow without an arrow or a string; it is a bow hung out for show, no longer used for war. It is a bow of many colors, expressing joy and delight, and not a bow blood-red with slaughter or black with anger. Let us be of good courage. Never does God so darken our sky as to leave His covenant without a witness, and even if He did, we would trust Him since He cannot change or lie or in any other way fail to keep His covenant of peace. Until the waters go over the earth again, we shall have no reason for doubting our God. -Charles Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 01.11.2021

“Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against Himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.” -Hebrews 12:3

One reason people drift from the Lord and get caught up in the things of the world is because they do not consider Jesus. They do not ponder and think upon Him.

Scripture at Sunrise 01.06.2021

The changes in your life won’t rattle you if you’re resting in the One who is eternally constant. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 01.04.2021

“saying, ‘Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but Yours, be done.'” -Luke 22:42

Sometimes God answers our prayers even when He knows it is not what is best for us. Hezekiah prayed for 15 more years of life, but they ended up being the worst years of his life.

Hezekiah wanted his own will. We need to learn “Not my will but Yours be done.”

Scripture at Sunrise 12.30.2020

“You wake up this morning to big, powerful grace, bigger than your biggest weakness, bigger than your biggest failure and more powerful than your most powerful sin.” -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 12.28.2020

“With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.” -2 Chronicles 32:8

When we realize our weakness, that’s when we rely on His strength.

Faith Tested” from 2 Chronicles 32)

Scripture at Sunrise 12.21.2020

“By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.” -Hebrews 11:31

Rahab is listed as a hero of the faith because of grace. The same grace it took to save her is the same grace it takes to save you and I. It is only the grace of God that can save anyone.
