• “I have learned that in every circumstance that comes my way, I can choose to respond in one of two ways: I can whine or I can worship” – Nancy DeMoss

Time Set Apart by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/25/11

“It’s easy to talk to God when I’m in church or to pray when I’m in Bible study.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: As part of a community of faith, we need times to worship and pray with other believers.

“But I don’t pray much when I’m alone. It’s just hard for me to come up with the time.”

NancyBut we also need time that is set apart just between God and us.

“Truth is, maybe I’m afraid of what He’ll show me.”

Nancy: There are parts of our relationship with God that can only be nurtured in a solitary place. In Exodus 34 we read that God called Moses up to meet with Him on Mount Sinai. God said, “Present yourself to me there on top of the mountain. No one is to come with you.”

But you know, it’s not just Moses. We need time alone with the Lord, too—in the Word and in prayer. When’s the last time you spent undistracted, quality moments with God, allowing Him to search your heart? Would you make some plans to get away with Him?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “A Christian woman’s true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate—humble obedience—but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, — Ephesians 5:25-26 (NKJV)
