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.

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon

Verse of the Day

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. — Romans 13:9-10 (NKJV)
