• “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Hurried Prayers by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/27/11

”And Lord, I pray that . . . um . . . you’ll keep us safe . . . and . . .”

“Come on, Mom, we’re ready!”

“Oh dear, it’s 7 o’clock—we’re late!”

“Come on, we’ve got to go!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I’ve come to believe that a rushed or hurried attitude is one of the deadliest enemies of an effective devotional life.

I remember years ago hearing Henry Blackaby explain how he felt rushed in the morning when he woke up to pray and read the Bible. God convicted him about this, so he started getting up half an hour earlier. He still felt rushed, so he started earlier.

Dr. Blackaby said, “I kept moving the time up in the morning until I knew that I could meet with God as long as He wanted to meet with me, without being hurried.”

Do you feel hurried when you meet with God? What would it take for you to meet with God as long as He wanted tomorrow morning?

Isaiah 26:9: ”My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

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)
