• “O beloved friends, there is a life on wings. I feel the streams of His life fill me and permeate my mortal frame from my head to my feet, until no words are adequate to describe it. I can only make a few bungling attempts to tell you what it is like and ask the Lord to reveal to you the rest. May He reveal to you your inheritance in Christ Jesus so that you will press on and get all that He has for you.” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

Sitting at the Feet of Jesus by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/09/11

“Well, at my house growing up, everybody was always busy doing something. So sitting down to read was considered . . . lazy. Now that I’m grown up, when I read the Bible, I just feel guilty, like I should be doing something.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Working hard to serve the Lord and others is a good thing, but we can do our work more effectively once we’ve spent time with Christ. In Luke 10 we see that Mary made a conscious choice. Her sister, Martha, was busy in the kitchen, but Mary decided to cultivate her relationship with Jesus. And in response Jesus said, “Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

We can make the same choice as Mary by spending time in prayer and the Word—even when there are other good things demanding our attention. It’s a choice to put Him first, above all other tasks. Have you made that choice today?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “What is the secret to great living? Entire separation to Christ and devotion to Him. Thus speaks every man and woman whose life has made more than a passing flicker in the spiritual realm. It is the life that has no time for trifling that counts.” – Amy Carmichael

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
