Great and Precious Promises by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/11/11

“We really felt like God wanted me to quit my job and focus on the needs of my family.“

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We all face moments of surrender to God’s will.

“We’re here in this new city where I don’t know anybody. I know God wants us to be here, but I feel so lonely.”

Nancy: When Abraham left everything behind to follow God, all he had to hold on to were the promises God had given him for children and land. For 25 years, Abraham never saw any evidence that the promise would be fulfilled. Sometimes we’re called to persevere like that.

“I never expected marriage to be this hard.”

Nancy: Second Peter says we have “exceeding great and precious promises.” Like Abraham, when things look bleak, we can cling to those promises. If you’re struggling to persevere, encourage your heart with the promises of God. And remind yourself that God always keeps His word.

  • “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth

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)
