• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

Filtered Through His Hands by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/17/12

“I don’t understand what God’s doing here.”

“I don’t know what to do with my daughter. We’re just not compatible.”

“I don’t know if I can take it another month living with our bills so tight.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: There’s a wonderful truth that’s sometimes hard for us to grasp. That is that God doesn’t make any mistakes.

Other people sometimes may make serious mistakes that affect our lives. But God is always fulfilling His eternal purposes, and they can’t be stopped by any human failure. If we’re in Christ, our lives are in His hands, and nothing can touch us that hasn’t first been filtered through His fingers of love.

“When I look back at it, being laid off was probably just what I needed. Boy, but I sure didn’t see it then.”

Nancy: Someone has said, “God’s will is exactly what we would choose if we knew what God knows.” When we stand in eternity, we’ll see clearly what we now know only by faith: He truly has done all things well.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss
