He Wants to Hear Your Voice by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/05/11

(Guiltily) “I know I need to read the Bible and pray—just like I need to eat vegetables, exercise, and balance my checkbook!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We do need a daily devotional time—even more than we need those other things.

A verse from the Song of Solomon radically altered the way I view my devotional life. The king in that story says, “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.” He goes on to say, “Let me see your countenance; let me hear your voice.”

Just like that king, God wants to hear your voice. That’s astonishing to me. I have to say, “Lord, why would you want to see my face? Why would you want to hear my voice?”

I still don’t understand why God wants to meet with me. But the fact remains. God enjoys spending time with me and with you! Have you spent time loving Him today?

“I don’t really balance my checkbook like I should, but I do eat vegetables.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon

Verse of the Day

Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the Lord; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord. — Jeremiah 23:24 (NKJV)
