• “We profess to be strangers and pilgrims, seeking after a country of our own, yet we settle down in the most un-stranger-like fashion, exactly as if we were quite at home and meant to stay as long as we could.” – Amy Carmichael

Rend the Heavens by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/15/11

Rend the Heavens

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Some friends once told me how many churches were in their area. In fact, in their state, one particular denomination had 14,000 churches.

But the crime rate was going up. And the area was plagued with social problems. How could that be, with a church on every corner? Could it be because there is so little sense of God’s presence in many of our churches?

The prophet Isaiah realized that his nation desperately needed revival, so he pleaded with God to visit His people. In Isaiah 64 he says, “Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down! That the mountains might shake at Your presence” (v. 1). Oh, that God would do that in our day.

Pray with me. “Lord, please rend the heavens and come down. May mountains of pride and sin tremble at Your presence. Come and visit Your church, O Lord. Do it for Your glory, amen.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”

Verse of the Day

Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the Lord; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord. — Jeremiah 23:24 (NKJV)
