• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

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.
