The passionate pursuit of God begins anew every day. As a follower of Jesus Christ we need to have time on a daily basis where we can read and focus on God’s Word (Bible); spend time in reflection and prayer; and develop our personal relationship with Christ. To many Christians this is known as our “personal daily devotional” life.
This is perhaps one of the most commonly overlooked, yet one of the most important, spiritual disciplines among modern day Christians.
This is the place where faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17). This is the place where we get honest with ourselves and with God. This is the place where we give our burdens to God in prayer and He calms our fears with faith. This is the place where we can hear the voice of God and give Him our praise. This is the place where we grow.
When we don’t spend time with God daily our times of celebration (church on Sundays) will lack meaning and purpose; attending a LIFE Group will not seem very important; and serving others in His name will rely on our strength instead of His.
This devotional was offered by Milford (DE) Church of God as part of its daily devotional series. If you don’t have a Bible that is easy to read please visit your local Christian bookstore, contact the office, or visit biblegateway.com. Here is another link to a very good supplement for your daily time with God.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain!
