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.

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
