A Wall or a Door? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/7/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Are you more like a wall or a door?

In the Song of Solomon, two types of women are described. One is like a wall; the other like a door. What does that mean?

I think that a wall represents a woman whose life is based on convictions. She doesn’t bend to pressure. When men come along with the wrong kind of advances, she doesn’t give in easily. She has established her life on the truth of God’s Word.

The other kind of woman is like a door that can easily be swayed because her life isn’t built on biblical convictions. She’s vulnerable to temptation. She’s turned aside from integrity and actually becomes a source of temptation herself.

When temptation comes, are you easily moved? Or are you in the process of building your life on God’s Word? Stability comes when we’re seeking Him through His Word.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22
