Daily Devotional Habits: How to Create and Protect Them

I can’t tell you how many times I have sat down to pray or read my Bible and life gets in the way. Or how many times I’ve come to the end of my day hoping to get some daily devotional time in but by the time I sat down I just didn’t have any steam left. Don’t get me wrong, I believe there’s grace for the days we fall short. But what happens when falling short becomes a habit? What systems do you have in place to keep that from happening?

I’m going to walk you through some checks and balances that I put in place that help me make daily devotional time actually happens. They are simple enough that you’ll want to add them to your system and effective enough that you’ll want to keep them there.

The BEST Chronological Bible Reading Plan

Since the books of the Bibles aren’t in order when we do open our Bibles to read we don’t typically focus on a singular story line. Instead we focus our attention on the various lessons we can learn from the different books. But the story of the Bible, the big picture story, is the most and priceless story to ever be recorded.

Love Languages In the Bible? Say It Isn’t So.

God is the Creator of all things good and he teaches us how to love well by example through out the entire Bible. If there’s one thing that Jesus got right that we are still catching up to it’s the idea of loving unconditionally; without reward or return.
