An Outpouring of Confession by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/15/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: In the 1930s, God sent a great revival in the Shantung province of China. Witnesses said that preachers couldn’t even finish their sermons because people were so convicted of sin that they would begin crying out in agony.

When’s the last time you saw that happen in your church? When’s the last time it happened in my church? When’s the last time I cried out for God’s mercy? We don’t usually have a deep enough awareness of our sin. That’s why we need revival.

When we see God as He really is, we begin to see ourselves as we really are. And with that conviction of sin, there’s an outpouring of heartfelt confession.

Would you ask God to revive your heart? Pray, “Lord, let me see how holy You are. And in light of Your holiness, show me those dark, hidden corners of my heart.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon

“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings. — Jeremiah 17:9-10 (NKJV)
