• “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

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.
