• “When human reason has exhausted every possibility, the children can go to their Father and receive all they need.…For only when you have become utterly dependent upon prayer and faith, only when all human possibilities have been exhausted, can you begin to reckon that God will intervene and work His miracles.” – Basilea Schlink

Intimate with God By Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/13/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When you develop a consistent devotional life, you’re becoming intimate with your Heavenly Father—kind of like Moses. In Exodus 24, God invited Aaron and his two sons, along with seventy elders of Israel, to come up on a mountain to “worship at a distance.”

It was an incredible opportunity. But their leader, Moses, was closer to God. The Bible says that he spoke to God “face to face, as a man speaks with his friend.”

Are you like someone who’s never been on the mountain—never experienced God’s presence? Are you like one of the elders—seeing God, but keeping a safe distance away? Or are you like Moses—getting to know God deeply, like a friend?

Through the blood of Christ, God invites us to draw near to Him. Through His Word and prayer, our relationship with God can grow deeper every day. What’s standing between you and true intimacy with God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “God, You created me woman. You know what You designed for me to be. I don’t want to be a foolish woman. I want to fulfill Your purpose for me. Speak to me through Your Word. Cleanse me through the washing of Your Word, and work in my life so that when I see You face to face, I am not ashamed, but I hear well done, My good and faithful daughter.” – Kay Arthur
