• “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914

On Every Word by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/22/12

“I’ll never forget when we were evacuated during the floods, we didn’t have anything. That’s when I realized how God gives us what we need. We couldn’t go to the grocery store, but He always took care of us.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When our normal source dries up, it’s a chance for us to see God’s power. The children of Israel had learned to lean on a source for their food—they relied on their captors in Egypt to give them meat. Then when God rescued them from slavery, the first thing He did was lead them into a desert.

Deuteronomy 8 tells us why. Moses reminded the Israelites: “He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna … to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.”

Is there an area where you feel dry and needy? It’s an opportunity to learn more about God as your source for everything.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
