Admission of Weakness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/14/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I once talked with a group of full-time Christian workers on the topic, “Potential Pitfalls of Ministry.” I was tempted to speak as if I never fell in the pitfalls—like I had it all together.

The truth though was at that point in my life, I was perilously close to several of those pitfalls myself.

I had to admit to those Christian workers that I needed this message as much as anyone. As a speaker, I needed to be honest about my own weakness and my need for God’s grace.

Psalm 138:6 says, “Though the LORD is on high, yet He regards the lowly; but the proud He knows from afar.” What opportunity has God given you today to humble yourself and express your need?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
