• “Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that Jesus is Victor.” – Basilea Schlink

Insulting Words by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/16/12

“Still I just well up with emotion as I remember all the times growing up that my father used the words, ‘You dummy.’ Because of that, I have not honored my father.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When we think about those who have cursed us with cruel words, it’s natural to justify responding in anger.

But King David modeled a supernatural way to respond. In 2 Samuel we read about a time when someone continually yelled insults and curses at David. As King, he could’ve had the man killed, but his response showed his trust in God’s sovereignty.

David said, “Leave him alone, and let him curse…. It may be that the LORD will look on the wrong done to me, and that the LORD will repay me with good for his cursing today.”

If you’re haunted by words of cursing from your past, would you ask God to give you a view of His sovereignty? He can help you heal through His power.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “My soul remained in a kind of heavenly elysium. So far as I am capable of making a comparison, I think that what I felt each minute, during the continuance of the whole time, was worth more than all the outward comfort and pleasure, which I had enjoyed in my whole life put together. It was a pure delight, which fed and satisfied the soul. It was peasure, without the least sting, or any interruption. It was a sweetness, which my soul was lost in. It seemed to be all that my feeble frame could sustain, of that fulness of joy, which is felt by those, who behold the face of Christ, and share his love in the heavenly world.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
