• “Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don’t need to search any further for security.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Tune My Heart by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/15/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When I was a teenager, I took some cello lessons. It didn’t take me long to learn that before I could pick up the cello and play it, I needed to make some preparations.

First I had to tighten and lubricate the bow. Then I had to adjust the height of the cello. Then each string had to be tuned. These preparations made a big difference in the sound.

Preparation also affects the time I spend in God’s Word and prayer. Going to bed early enough the night before helps to “tune my heart.” It also helps to meditate on Him as I’m going to sleep.

Then, when I wake up, I need to ask Him to help me connect with Him. I want the words of Isaiah 50, verse 4 to be true of me. It says, “He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen as one being taught.”

What can you do to prepare to connect with God and worship Him in the morning?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914

Verse of the Day
