• “But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed.” – Amy Carmichael

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.

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
