In September 1997, Nancy Leigh DeMoss wrote the following in her journal…
I have been contemplating the possibility that God might want me to become more engaged in confronting the influence of feminism by promoting a biblical view of womanhood. I have felt that to do so would be to spend the rest of my life in the “lions’ den”—and to take on a battle that there is no hope of winning—the enemy has done such a masterful and thorough job of deception and devastation.
But I am reminded of numerous situations in which God placed His children in a position where they were hopelessly outnumbered–that He might show them that “the battle is the Lord’s.” If this is a battle of His choosing for me, then He will fight for me, He will conquer the unconquerable, He will cause the walls of Jericho to fall, He will defeat the enemy, no matter how numerous or deeply entrenched they may be.
I am so grateful that God provided Nancy Leigh DeMoss with the courage she would need to enter the “lion’s den” and begin the ministry of Revive Our Hearts. This weekend marks a day of great significance in the history of ROH, the 10th anniversary of Nancy’s first radio broadcast. What a difference this daily program has made in the Kingdom of God!
If you’re not a faithful follower of ROH yet, I can’t encourage you enough to begin listening to Nancy’s messages, reading the True Woman blog, and making plans to attend upcoming conferences like Revive ’11 or True Woman ’12.
Happy 10th anniversary, Revive Our Hearts! I’m asking the Lord to give you many more years in His service!
