• “God then opened my eyes to the great truths of the New Covenant that He had established in Christ. He showed me that He had given me the power of the Holy Spirit so that I would not live for myself anymore, but only for Him.” – Annie Poonen

A Lonely Place by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/03/11

“I love taking care of my family. But when I need that alone time, I always feel like I have an audience. Someone always needs me every moment of the day.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you ever feel like you’re always surrounded by people with needs? Jesus faced the same thing. Luke 5 says, “Crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses.”

Jesus could not have met the needs of all those people if He hadn’t stayed connected with His Father. Luke 5 goes on to tell us that Jesus often “withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”

Where can you go to get a few minutes alone? If you can get away and spend some time in prayer and the Word of God, I think you’ll find yourself relating to your needy crowd differently.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot
