• “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

The Will of the Father by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/23/11

“You know, I really want to help people. But there’s so much pain and hurt in the world, I don’t even know where to begin!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: There are needs everywhere we look. It was the same way in Jesus’ time. How did He set priorities?

We get an idea from these words in Mark 1: “Very early in the morning while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went off to a solitary place where he prayed.”

The disciples finally found Jesus, expecting Him to minister to the large crowds in the town where they were. But Jesus said, “We’re going on to the next town.” He had gotten quiet enough to discover His Father’s priorities for that day.

That’s what you and I need to do through time in prayer and in the Word of God. If you ever feel like you don’t know what God wants you to do, maybe the solution is to sit still long enough to get the Father’s direction.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
