• “When God was pleased to call me to Christ’s mission, which is a mission of peace and love to the sinful and the wandering, He taught me that I must be willing to be, in some sense, a partaker in Christ’s sufferings.” – Madame Guyon

Hope in God by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/19/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: King David documented a lot of his emotional struggles in the Psalms. By reading through the Psalms, we discover that sometimes physical and emotional suffering is a result from our own choices.

David: When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long. My thoughts trouble me, and I am distraught. The terrors of death assail me. Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me.

Nancy: No matter where the pain came from, David knew where to go for help.

David: Why are you cast down, O my soul? Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation and my God.

Nancy: We all go through seasons of emotional pain. The next time you feel overwhelmed, you can go to the same source David talked about. No matter what you are facing, you can trust God, and you can experience His joy and peace.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
