• “In the darkest of nights cling to the assurance that God loves you, that He always has advice for you, a path that you can tread and a solution to your problem–and you will experience that which you believe. God never disappoints anyone who places his trust in Him.” – Basilea Schlink

God’s Will in God’s Word by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/14/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I have some close friends whose marriage is in serious trouble. Sometimes I feel like I just don’t know how to pray for them. Maybe you’ve been in the same situation.

I do know that God shows us His will in His Word. So if I pray according to what the Scripture says, I can know that I’m praying God’s will.

For example, I know from Ephesians 5 that it’s God’s will for this husband to love his wife in the same way Christ loves the church. So I can pray that this husband will learn to do that.

I also pray based on God’s Word that this wife will learn to reverence her husband and to submit to his leadership in their home. I pray that they would walk in love, in oneness, and in truth.

The next time you want to pray according to God’s will and you’re not quite sure what that is, try opening your Bible, and you’ll find out.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “A Christian woman’s true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate—humble obedience—but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
