• “If I am content to heal a hurt slightly, saying ‘Peace, peace,’ where is no peace; if I forget the poignant word ‘Let love be without dissimulation’ and blunt the edge of truth, speaking not right things but smooth things, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

Nothing but the Truth by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/20/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When God revives a heart, it brings about true humility.

“Revival began in my life when I humbled myself and called a judge’s office. Years earlier I’d been a witness in a federal court trial, and I hadn’t told the whole truth.”

Nancy: In times of revival, God convicts His people of their sin and calls them to repentance.

“God was speaking to my heart about this sin. I had to make it right, even though I knew I might end up in jail.”

Nancy: Maybe there’s a situation in your life that requires humility. Remember these words from Proverbs 29: “A man’s pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor” (verse 23).

“After a total wait of about a year, I got word that neither side wanted to reopen the case. I was a free man. But true freedom had come when I had humbled myself and said yes to God.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
