• “Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Getting Input by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/19/11

(Phone being dialed)

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We have different levels of intimacy with different people. Most are more like acquaintances, but some are intimate friends.

Nancy: (talking on the phone) One of the things I value most in my closest friends is being able to pick up the phone and get their advice.

NancyI’ve asked for guidance on things from water softeners to insurance coverage, from hiring staff to scheduling conferences. I’m so thankful for those wise, close friends.

Did you know that God wants to be an intimate friend to you? He wants you to come to Him with your deepest concerns and most honest questions.

James wrote, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”

Do you need wisdom today? Why not spend some time asking God for help and opening the Bible for counsel? You can’t find better advice anywhere.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
