Struggling for Words by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/22/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When our nation experiences a sudden crisis, what do most people do? Flip on the TV. We want the very latest information and analysis. But do you ever find that commentators and reporters struggle for words—especially when faced with severe shock or grief?

There’s nothing wrong with watching the news, but ultimately, it’s not the most reliable source of information.

In dark times, the Word of God gives light, understanding, and wisdom. That’s why we sometimes need to unplug and open the Bible.

Scripture gives us perspective. It reminds us that God is our refuge. A present help in time of trouble. It gives us faith in times that are fearful. We’re reminded that we don’t have to fear even though “the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea.”

Where do you go for true perspective? To the television, websites, or blogs? Or to the Word of God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Holiness is not just for some select few spiritual giants; it is not just for pious people who sit around all day with nothing to do but ‘be holy.’…’Everyone who names the name of the Lord’ is called to live a holy life!” – Nancy DeMoss

Verse of the Day

[Meditate on These Things] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. — Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)
