• “It takes spiritual authority to bless others. Many Christians say, “God bless you,” but one clearly senses that although the words express a kind wish, they lack real spiritual authority.” – Basilea Schlink

Pictures of Christ by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/05/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: You’ve probably read in the Old Testament about Israel wandering through the desert. They spent years traveling but couldn’t stop at any clothing or shoe stores. They didn’t have any grocery stores or obvious supply of food, but God provided everything they needed.

When they were thirsty, Moses struck a rock and water flowed out. When they were hungry, God sent bread from heaven. God went before them in a cloud to cover them, and He clothed them for all those years.

I think all of those provisions point us to Christ. Jesus said, “I am the bread of God come down from heaven . . . I am the living water.”

Jesus clothes us in righteousness. He is the rock of our salvation. On the cross He was struck for us, and out of Him comes a life-giving flow.

You feel like your life has been aimless? Accept the provision of Christ. He really is everything you need.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
