• “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael

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.
