• “What is the secret to great living? Entire separation to Christ and devotion to Him. Thus speaks every man and woman whose life has made more than a passing flicker in the spiritual realm. It is the life that has no time for trifling that counts.” – Amy Carmichael

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.
