Bread in the Desert by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/22

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you ever feel so exhausted that you just can’t go on? First Kings tells us that the prophet Elijah felt that way after a showdown with the evil Queen Jezebel.

He was asleep in the wilderness after having run for his life. The Bible tells us that an angel woke him up and said, “Get up and eat.” The angel provided a cake of bread baked over hot coals and a jar of water. There was no kitchen there in the desert, but God gave Elijah exactly what he needed.

You may not have battled an evil queen lately, but maybe you’ve been dealing with toddlers—or teenagers—all day, and you’re exhausted. God’s given us daily bread in the form of His Word. And He’s given us bread from heaven in the form of Christ.

Would you take comfort and rest in Him, asking for His help and strength?

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.”
