• “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth

Drive Thru Prayers by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/9/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: For nearly twelve years I traveled full-time, year-round. During that time, I became a fast food junkie.

“Welcome to Starbees. Would you like to try our special today?”

Nancy: But when I turned thirty, my body started to feel the effects of years of junk food. It was begging for a more nutritious, balanced diet. I needed to make some drastic changes.

I’m sad to say there have been times when I’ve fallen into the habit of spiritual fast food. Grabbing a quick verse here, saying a brief prayer there, meeting with God on the run. The problem is, devotions like that always leave us spiritually malnourished.

But Psalm 81:16 tells us what happens when we listen to Him. It says: “You would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

Do you need to slow down and let God satisfy your hungry heart?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
