• “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth

Steps of Humility by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/19/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: There are certain things we know we need to do.

“I never made things right. I need to go back and apologize.”

Nancy: But our pride keeps us from taking that step.

“I probably should tell somebody about this temptation and have them pray for me.”

When I speak in conferences, I usually ask the women, “How many of you know there’s some step of humility God wants you to take, but there’s a battle raging inside you—you’re finding it tough to take that step?”

Hands go up across the room. I then remind them that the battle will stop as soon as they raise the white flag of surrender and say, “Yes, Lord.”

The longer you delay, the harder it is to obey God. If you have a struggle going on in your heart right now, would you wave the white flag of surrender? Put one foot in front of the other and say, “Yes, Lord.”

You can’t imagine the joy that waits on the other side of humility and obedience.

  • “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot
