• “Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” – Elisabeth Elliot

One Thing I Desire by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/08/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: If you could have just one thing, what would it be?

“Just one thing . . . a red Ferrari!”

(glass breaking) “A maid!”

“A rich and good-looking husband!”

Nancy: King David of Israel seemed to have it all: popularity, fortune, military achievement, loyal friends. But there was one thing that he wanted more than anything else.

We read about it in Psalm 27:4. “One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.”

David’s one supreme, driving passion in life was to know God.

Let me challenge you. Over the next thirty days, why don’t you spend some time each day in God’s Word and in prayer? You’ll find your time with Him becoming a higher priority as you grow closer to the One who loves you most.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

[The Last Enemy Destroyed] But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. — 1 Corinthians 15:20-22 (NKJV)
