• “But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed.” – Amy Carmichael

Come Away by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/30/11

“All my life I dreamed that a handsome king would come serenade me at my window and whisk me away! (Sigh) Enough daydreaming. I guess I’d better read my Bible and pray.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you realize that our time in the Word and in prayer doesn’t have to be a dull routine? There’s an incredible King who loves you. He’s pursuing you. He wants to spend time with you and reveal Himself to you. He does that through prayer and through His Word.

In Song of Solomon 2, the king asks his bride to leave what she’s doing so they can spend time together. He calls from outside her window and says, “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.”

Your King is at the window. God wants to spend time with you. How will you respond today?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. — 1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
