• “I was restored, as it were, to perfect life and set wholly at liberty. I was no longer depressed, no longer borne down under the burden of sorrow. I had thought God lost, and lost forever; but I found Him again.” – Madame Guyon

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.
