• “God, I want to know more of You. I want to know more of Your ways. I want to know anything You want to show me through this. But if I have to live with mystery and unanswered questions the rest of my life, I will still trust You. I will still love You. I will still obey You.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Daily Routines by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/17/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Life is filled with daily routines. Every day you get up, you brush your teeth, clean up. You eat lunch; you eat dinner.

The Old Testament priests had some regular routines they had to perform. In Exodus 30 we read, “Aaron must burn fragrant incense on the altar every morning when he tends the lamps. He must burn incense again when he lights the lamps at twilight so incense will burn regularly before the LORD.”

The priest didn’t offer incense whenever he happened to think of it. He did it every day. God was pursuing a relationship with His people, and He knew that required daily communication.

Do you realize that God is still pursuing a relationship with His people? With you? The incense that the priest once offered is a picture of our prayers.

As you go about your daily routines, are you consistently doing the most important thing? Are you communicating with God in prayer and through His Word?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “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
