• “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon

Memorization – Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/20/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When I talk with someone who’s discouraged or depressed, I often ask them, “Are you memorizing Scripture?” Now, that’s not a magic formula to make problems go away, but memorizing God’s Word has power to change our perspective about whatever issues we’re facing.

(Children quoting Scripture)

“Be ye kind one to another.”

“Give thanks to the Lord that made great lights—sun by day, moon and stars by night.”

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for our sins.”

Nancy: If you’ve never memorized Scripture before, I suggest starting small and learn just a couple of verses a week.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart.”

Nancy: I’m confident that you’ll find that God’s Word will start to influence all of your thinking.

“The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
