I Need Him by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/26/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I wake up every morning knowing I need to spend time reading the Scripture and praying. But it’s so easy to jump into the details of my day without first taking time to be with the Lord.

Whenever I do that—when I start tackling the day without spending time with Him—I’m really saying that I can handle things on my own. I don’t need God.

Sometimes I get the sense that God may be saying, “You want to handle this day by yourself? Go ahead.” At best, it’s an empty, fruitless day lived for myself. And at worst, I end up in some big messes!

We need to learn from King David. Even though he was a busy leader, he made a point to spend his first moments with God. In Psalm 5 he says, “O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice.”

When I start the day by humbling myself and admitting that I can’t do things on my own, I can count on God to carry me through the day. Has He heard your voice yet today?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
