• “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael

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.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. — Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
