• “Jesus is the Great Physician, and whatever your need may be, He’s a specialist in that field. With one hand He takes His surgeon’s knife and removes what has to go, and with the other He applies his healing oil.” – Hattie Hammond

The First Face by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/13/11

”When I wake up grumpy, I’m usually mad at myself for oversleeping. Then, I take my frustration out on my husband and my kids.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: If you can relate, listen to this great advice from the old-time preacher, Charles Spurgeon. He said, “It is a good rule never to look into the face of man in the morning until you have looked into the face of God.”

The psalmist put it this way: “I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.”

If you have trouble being kind to others in the morning, maybe the answer is to get up early enough to be alone with God. Cry out for help.

Let the face of God be the first one you see. You may be surprised at how it changes the way you relate to other people throughout the day.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “When we begin to understand what the blood of Jesus does for us, we will testify to the power of His blood, and shall thus have power continually to overcome the enemy. It is blessed to note that the blood of Jesus is the purchase price of our full salvation. ‘Take heed…to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood’ (Acts 20:28)” – Carrie Judd Montgomery
