• “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael

Search Me by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 05/04/11

 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We spend a lot of time examining our lives.

“I always check my make-up after lunch.”

“In the morning when I step on the scale and I see that I’ve lost a pound or two—I get so excited!”

“Tuesday is bill night. My wife and I balance the checkbook, pay bills, and talk about stuff.”

Nancy: When is the last time you evaluated your life—spiritually? Are you allowing the Bible to be a mirror, showing you areas where you need to change? Are you measuring your spiritual progress? Are you more like Jesus today than you were a year ago?

Keeping close watch on our health and finances is important. But there’s nothing more important than saying with the psalmist, “Oh God, search my heart, try me, know me. See if there be any wicked way in me.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot
