• ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Fletcher’s Questions by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/12/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I find it easy to rush right through a day without taking time to evaluate whether I’m doing the right things from the right motives. Sometimes I need to stop and examine my life.

The Puritan writer, John Fletcher, used a series of questions to examine his heart.

  • Do I have pride?
  • Am I dead to all desire for praise?
  • Do I have the presence of God in my life?
  • Am I free from the fear of man?
  • Do I embrace the cross in every way it presents itself to me?

Nancy: It’s important to take some time on a regular basis to stop and take stock and place our lives under God’s divine searchlight.

  • Am I willing to give up my ease and my convenience to minister to others?
  • Am I ready to give up a point when I am contradicted?
  • Am I content with whatever is or may be, feeling that God, the Author of all events, does and will do all for my good?
