• “When human reason has exhausted every possibility, the children can go to their Father and receive all they need.…For only when you have become utterly dependent upon prayer and faith, only when all human possibilities have been exhausted, can you begin to reckon that God will intervene and work His miracles.” – Basilea Schlink

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.
