• “If we do not want those veils, He will clear them away. He has given us power of our wills. If the will be set towards beholding, looking, reflecting, then our Lord will see to the veils.” – Amy Carmichael

A Woman of the Word by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 05/23/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Perhaps one of the greatest psalms ever written came from Mary of Nazareth.

Mary: “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.”

Nancy: One thing that impresses me about this prayer is that it shows Mary knew the Word of God. In those days women didn’t have a formal education, and Mary was probably illiterate. But she had listened to the Word of God and hidden it in her heart. Her prayer in Luke 1 has at least a dozen quotations from the Old Testament.

Mary: “He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.”

Nancy: Are you that familiar with the Word of God? Are your prayers, responses, and words saturated with His way of thinking?

Mary: “He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty.”

Nancy: The best way to know God’s Word is to spend some time reading it today.

Mary: “He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
