Surgery by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/31/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I know of a woman who found herself at a marriage retreat, making a mental list of all the ways her husband needed to change. Then, unexpectedly, the Holy Spirit started to do some supernatural surgery in her heart.

“God began to peel back the layers of my heart. There was bitterness, hate, rebellion, and an underlying pride that corrupted everything.”

Nancy: In that moment, she chose brokenness. She asked God to forgive her. She discovered brokenness brings blessedness. Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit.”

As you think about a difficult relationship you may be in, are you sitting back waiting for the other person to change? Could there be some spiritual surgery needed in your own heart? Are you willing to let God show you your needs and change you?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
