• “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss

Determined by Choices by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/30/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We didn’t choose all of our circumstances.

“I didn’t ask to be born into my family. I certainly didn’t ask for them to treat me that way.”

Nancy: But we do have a choice about how we respond to life’s circumstances.

”Aww, it’s time that I forgive mom and dad.”

Nancy: All of us are affected by our circumstances, but we don’t have to be controlled by them.

If our happiness and well-being depends on what happens to us, we’ll always see ourselves as victims.

But the fact is the outcome of our lives is not determined by what happens to us but by how we respond to what happens to us.

You may feel trapped because of the wounds inflicted by someone else. But you can find freedom by choosing to respond to those people with grace and forgiveness.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “O beloved friends, there is a life on wings. I feel the streams of His life fill me and permeate my mortal frame from my head to my feet, until no words are adequate to describe it. I can only make a few bungling attempts to tell you what it is like and ask the Lord to reveal to you the rest. May He reveal to you your inheritance in Christ Jesus so that you will press on and get all that He has for you.” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

Verse of the Day

For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. — Hebrews 10:30-31 (NKJV)
