• “He is so infinitely blessed, that every perception of His blissful presence imparts a gladness to the heart. Every degree of approach to Him is, in the same proportion, a degree of happiness.” – Susannah Wesley

God’s Love Letter by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/11/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When I was a teenager, my dad helped me learn how to speed-read. But he said there were two things that should never be speed-read: love letters and the Bible.

Most of us wouldn’t think about quickly skimming through a love letter. Instead, we would study it for every nuance of meaning.

The Bible is a love letter. The more carefully we read it, the more we’ll discover God’s heart for us.

If you’re in the habit of rushing through the Bible, would you consider reading more thoughtfully? Pause to meditate on the things you’re reading. Dwell on it, and ponder it until it becomes part of you.

That’s what Joshua told the children of Israel to do. He said, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.”

Why don’t you spend some time today meditating on God’s love letter to you?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Sin is more dangerous than wild bears, more deadly than blazing forest fires. Ask Nebuchadnezzar, who lost his mind because he refused to deal with his pride. Ask Samson, who was reduced to a pathetic shred of a man because he never got control over the lusts of his flesh. Ask Achan and Ananias and Sapphira, who all lost their lives over “small,” secret sins.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Verse of the Day

But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. — Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
