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.

  • “My soul remained in a kind of heavenly elysium. So far as I am capable of making a comparison, I think that what I felt each minute, during the continuance of the whole time, was worth more than all the outward comfort and pleasure, which I had enjoyed in my whole life put together. It was a pure delight, which fed and satisfied the soul. It was peasure, without the least sting, or any interruption. It was a sweetness, which my soul was lost in. It seemed to be all that my feeble frame could sustain, of that fulness of joy, which is felt by those, who behold the face of Christ, and share his love in the heavenly world.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Verse of the Day

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, — Ephesians 5:25-26 (NKJV)
