(Guiltily) “I know I need to read the Bible and pray—just like I need to eat vegetables, exercise, and balance my checkbook!”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We do need a daily devotional time—even more than we need those other things.
A verse from the Song of Solomon radically altered the way I view my devotional life. The king in that story says, “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.” He goes on to say, “Let me see your countenance; let me hear your voice.”
Just like that king, God wants to hear your voice. That’s astonishing to me. I have to say, “Lord, why would you want to see my face? Why would you want to hear my voice?”
I still don’t understand why God wants to meet with me. But the fact remains. God enjoys spending time with me and with you! Have you spent time loving Him today?
“I don’t really balance my checkbook like I should, but I do eat vegetables.”
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
