Woman: I used to read the Bible and pray all the time, but then it became kind of boring. I wish I knew how that happens.
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: We all go through dry times in our walk with the Lord. That dryness can be a result of unconfessed sin. That's why we need to ask God whether any issue is keeping us separated from Him.
But spiritual dry spells can also be God’s way of revealing what’s in our hearts. Are we worshiping Him because of the sensation it gives us or just because He is worthy of worship?
And then God sometimes, I think, allows us to go through dry times just to let us love and worship Him by faith.
Job gives us an example of responding by faith, even when you're feeling dry. He said, “When he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. . . . I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread” (23:10–12).
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
