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.
