• “Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.” – Elisabeth Elliot

God’s Love in Us by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/12/11

“They parked that ugly car in front of my yard again!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We shouldn’t be too surprised when an unbeliever does something inconsiderate. God is love, and when people don’t know Him, they’re not likely to truly show love. But someone who knows God doesn’t have an excuse.

“I was headed out for church this morning, and I just glared at them.”

NancyIt’s sad when someone claims to be a disciple of Jesus but doesn’t show love.

“I was hoping that giving them ‘the look’ would tell them I didn’t approve.”

Romans 5:5 says, “God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

If you’re in a relationship with Jesus, you have the ability to truly love by the power of God’s Spirit. Ask God to pour His love through you to those around you today.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “If my attitude be one of fear, not faith, about one who has disappointed me; if I say, ‘Just what I expected,’ if a fall occurs, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael
