• “I was poor in the midst of riches, and ready to perish with hunger near a table plentifully spread and a continual feast. Oh, Beauty, ancient and new! Why have I known thee so late? Alas, I sought thee where thou wast not, and did not seek thee where thou wast…” – Madame Guyon

The Professionals by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/10/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: You can hire “professionals” to do just about anything these days, from fixing your computer to mowing your lawn. We’ve especially been trained to take our emotional problems to the experts, looking for professionals and pills to solve the problems of soul and spirit.

There may be a place for psychologists and therapists, if their counsel is rooted in God’s Word. But remember the words of James 5.

“Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him. Confess your faults one to another and pray one for another.”

James says that when you’re hurting, first let the body of Christ minister grace. Ask them to pray with you. Confess any sin that might be causing emotional weakness or sickness, and start to be accountable to other believers.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
