Set Apart

“Being set apart for God is not a punishment.  It is not an attempt on God’s part to  deprive us or condemn us to a cheerless, joyless lifestyle.  It is a privilege–a call to belong, to be cherished, to enter into an intimate love relationship with God Himself; to fit into His grand, eternal plan for this universe; to experience the exquisite joys and purposes for which we were created; to be freed from all that destroys our true happiness.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss, A Place of Quiet Rest:  Daily Devotional Readings,  (January 7.) Chicago:  Moody Publishers, 2012.
