• “Lord, may no gift of yours ever take Your place in my heart. Help me to hold them lightly in an open palm, that the supreme object of my desire may always be You and You alone. Purify my heart.” – Elisabeth Elliot

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.
