• “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

Dry Spells by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/06/11

“I used to read the Bible and pray all the time, but then it became kind of boring. I wish I knew how that happens.“

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We all go through dry times in our walk with the Lord. That dryness can be a result of unconfessed sin. That’s why we need to ask God whether any issue is keeping us separated from Him.

But spiritual dry spells can also be God’s way of revealing what’s in our hearts. Are we worshiping Him because of the sensation it gives us or just because He is worthy of worship?

And then God sometimes, I think, allows us to go through dry times just to let us love and worship Him by faith.

Job gives us an example of responding by faith, even when you’re feeling dry. He said, “When he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. . . . I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
