• “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink

The Spirit Says … by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/15/11

“The Spirit says, ‘Forgive.’”

“The flesh says, ‘Hold a grudge.’”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Anyone who is a true child of God has been given a new nature. He or she wants to please God. But according to Scripture, even after we’re born again, our “flesh” continues to wage war against the Spirit of God living in us.

“The Spirit says, ‘Be temperate.’”

“The flesh says, ‘Eat whatever you want whenever you feel like it.’”

Nancy: When we choose to give in to the flesh, we allow sin to gain mastery over us. But every time we say yes to the Spirit, we give Him greater control over our lives.

“Give that money to someone in need.”

“Spend it on something you don’t need.”

“Spend some time in the Word.”

“You’ve had a long day. Relax in front of the TV.”

“Hold your tongue.”

“Tell it like it is!”

Nancy: Jesus said, “Apart from me, you can do nothing.” Ask Him to give you the power to say yes to the Spirit today.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon
