• “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss

Write in Your Bible by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/05/12

Pastor: A lot of times when I’m doing a eulogy at a funeral and the person has served the Lord, I ask to see their Bible. I love to read what they’ve written in the margins and see what God has shown them over the years.

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: If you ever have a hard time concentrating when you’re reading God’s Word, you may want to take some notes in the margin of your Bible.

I like to do this when the Lord uses a verse or passage to address a specific need in my life, or when He encourages or convicts my heart in an unusual way. Sometimes I’ll write down the date and city where I was when this personal encounter with God’s Word took place.

Or I may use the margins to write down personal responses to the truth, such as, “Yes, Lord” or “Make this be true in my life.”

If you find it hard to focus when you’re reading the Bible, you may find it helpful to make some notes in the margin. By doing that, a Bible can tell the story of your personal journey of faith.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink

Verse of the Day

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. — Galatians 6:7-8 (NKJV)
