• “Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes off your relish of spiritual things; in short, whatever increases the strength and authority of your body over your mind, that thing is sin to you.” – Susanna Wesley

I Could Not Find Him by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/27/11

“All night long on my bed I looked for the one my heart loves.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The Song of Solomon tells the story about a king and his bride. There are a couple of times when she feels like she’s lost her bridegroom.

“I will search for the one my heart loves. So I looked for him but did not find him.“

Nancy: I think that can be a picture of seasons we go through in our relationship with God. We can enjoy deep times of connecting with Him through the Bible and prayer, and then suddenly things seem to dry up.

If you’re in the middle of one of those times, don’t give up. Keep searching for the one you love through His Word and in prayer. Your search will be rewarded, and you’ll enjoy even deeper times together once a conscious sense of His presence has returned.

“When I found the one my heart loves, I held him and would not let him go.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
