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.

  • “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael
