Scripture at Sunrise 11.29.2022

“He that believeth shall not make haste.” -Isaiah 28:16

He shall make haste to keep the Lord’s commandments; but he shall not make haste in any impatient or improper sense.

He shall not haste to run away, for he shall not be overcome with the fear which causes panic. When others are flying hither and thither as if their wits had failed them, the believer shall be quiet, calm, and deliberate, and so shall be able to act wisely in the hour of trial.

He shall not haste in his expectations, craving his good things at once and on the spot, but he will wait God’s time. Some are in a desperate hurry to have the bird in the hand, for they regard the Lord’s promise as a bird in the bush, not likely to be theirs. Believers know how to wait.

He shall not haste by plunging into wrong or questionable action. Unbelief must be doing something, and thus it works its own undoing; but faith makes no more haste than good speed, and thus it is not forced to go back sorrowfully by the way which it followed heedlessly.

How is it with me? Am I believing, and am I therefore keeping to the believer’s pace, which is walking with God? Peace, fluttering spirit! Oh, rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him! Heart, see that thou do this at once!

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

“Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!” -Psalm 27:14

Scripture at Sunrise 3.10.2014

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Luke 19:11-27
“A nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and then return.” -Luke 19:12

Historically, Archaelaus sought to have the title of king so he went to Rome from Judea to try to obtain that title which was not bestowed upon him by Caesar.  The Jews hated him.  This nobleman, one with a noble birth, was going away to receive a kingdom from a higher authority and the kingdom would be the country he leaves.  The larger picture is of Christ Who was born of noble birth, Who was going back to heaven to receive the kingdom and title, given a Name above every name and one day He is returning where everyone must give an account of themselves to Him.

Sunday Evening | Pastor Anthony Vance | Psalm 27
Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! -Psalm 27:14

Fears are real in everyone’s life. In this psalm, we see who the Lord was to David. He was his light, salvation, and strength.

Due time is God’s time, which is always the right time.
