• “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon

Against the Flow by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/29/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When’s the last time you thought about modesty?

“I didn’t think about modesty at all until this lady at church brought it up and started talking to me about it.”

Nancy: The Bible exhorts women to “adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control.” But the truth is, a lot of women just go with the flow when it comes to fashion.

“I decided to throw out half my wardrobe!”

Nancy: If you’ve never given modesty much thought, here are some questions you might ask yourself:

  • Am I dressing for the attention of others or for God’s glory?
  • Do my choices reflect discretion and self-control?
  • Am I evaluating my wardrobe by God’s Word or by the latest fashion magazine?

If you’ve just been going with the flow, would you ask God to help you evaluate your wardrobe? Is there anything in it that doesn’t reflect well on Him?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “If my attitude be one of fear, not faith, about one who has disappointed me; if I say, ‘Just what I expected,’ if a fall occurs, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. — 1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
