• “He is so infinitely blessed, that every perception of His blissful presence imparts a gladness to the heart. Every degree of approach to Him is, in the same proportion, a degree of happiness.” – Susannah Wesley

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.

  • “My soul remained in a kind of heavenly elysium. So far as I am capable of making a comparison, I think that what I felt each minute, during the continuance of the whole time, was worth more than all the outward comfort and pleasure, which I had enjoyed in my whole life put together. It was a pure delight, which fed and satisfied the soul. It was peasure, without the least sting, or any interruption. It was a sweetness, which my soul was lost in. It seemed to be all that my feeble frame could sustain, of that fulness of joy, which is felt by those, who behold the face of Christ, and share his love in the heavenly world.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Verse of the Day

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. — 1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
