• “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

An X-Ray by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/30/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When you get your annual, complete physical, the doctor examines you to find out if anything is wrong.

“I suppose that’s the test results back from the lab?”

“Uh huh.”

Nancy: Sometimes they may even use an X-ray machine to see things that you can’t see below the surface.

“A friend of mine, he’s like, a nurse. He said it looks normal. What do you think?”

“Looks can be deceiving. I’m a little bit concerned about some of the symptoms you’ve been having. Let’s take a look, and make sure there’s nothing wrong inside.”

Nancy: Even if it’s uncomfortable, we let the doctor examine us because if something’s wrong, we need to know.

We also need to let God examine us. It can be uncomfortable coming face-to-face with sin, but if we don’t find it and deal with it, the results can be deadly.

Even more important than getting a physical checkup, we need to pray with the psalmist, “See if there be any wicked way in me.”

  • “Don’t assume you have to be extraordinary to be used by God. You don’t have to have exceptional gifts, talents, abilities, or connections. God specializes in using ordinary people whose limitations and weaknesses make them ideal showcases for His greatness and glory” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
