• “We need Jesus!…He is our joy…without Him, the world and all it calls good, is poverty, wretchedness and woe! With Him, a wilderness is a paradise, a cottage a palace and the lowliest spot of earth a little heaven below” – Mary Winslow

Handing God the Cup by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/12/12

(answering machine)

“Please leave your question at the tone.” (beep)

“I am facing a major decision. I’ve got two good opportunities. How do I know what to do?”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Sometimes when I’m praying over a specific decision, I symbolically place that issue in my hands, then lift my cupped hands to God. I say, “Lord, I’m committing this matter to You. Please use Your Word to guide me to a wise decision.”

God may bring to mind Scriptures that give insight on the situation. He may impress me to get godly counsel. He may remind me of another priority He’s already given. Or He may grant the desire, the faith, and the freedom to step out in the new venture.

Psalm 119 says, “The entrance of Your words gives light.” Do you need light on your situation? Do you need direction for the tough choices of life? Open the Word of God, hand Him the issue, and ask Him for direction.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “If I am content to heal a hurt slightly, saying ‘Peace, peace,’ where is no peace; if I forget the poignant word ‘Let love be without dissimulation’ and blunt the edge of truth, speaking not right things but smooth things, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

Verse of the Day

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
