• “Whether we’re married or single, with children or childless, at every season of life if we are trying to find fulfillment and contentment and joy through anything or anyone other than Christ Himself, we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment.” – Elisabeth Elliott

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.

  • “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael
