• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

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.

  • “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”
