What are Devotionals?

“O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.” – Psalm 63:1

A devotional time is a quiet time that you set aside to focus on God by reading a short inspirational message, studying the Bible verses for each day, praying, and reflecting on your relationship with God.

Devotional time can take other forms, such as singing, meditation, reading whole passages of scripture, and even writing out your thoughts about your life wit God in a journal entry.

It is always best to begin your devotional time by praying and thanking God for the blessing of another day, asking Him to speak to you in a personal way, and to guide you throughout each step of the day.

Devotional time is best first thing in the morning after waking up before your mind becomes occupied with other responsibilities.

If you have concerns weighing on your mind as you wake up in the morning, it’s good to train your mind to re-focus on God. Go ahead and roll everything else over to the Lord. Commit your concerns to God, and trust Him to work them out.


PRAYER

Dear LORD God, everyday will I give You the first part of my day, and make it a priority to rise up very early in the morning to seek your holy face, because You deserve the firstfruits of everything in my life. As I commit the very first hours of my day to You, I know the rest of the day will go more smoothly. Amen.
