A devotional book is a reflection on scripture and prayer. Many devotional books are structured with a daily format, while others include weekly format or a page-by-page method. To select a devotional that works for you, consider the content over the format. You might look for a devotional book written by a favorite author. Maybe a friend recommended one to you or you receive a devotional as a gift. Sometimes God will call you to a season of stillness and as you pray the Holy Spirit will lead you to a collection of devotions to reflect upon.
Devotional Books for Christians[table “149” not found /]
In my devotional journey, I’ve discovered a few important features.
- Some devotionals are mini-Bible studies, and the focus is on education rather than relationship.
- Some devotionals are written for couples, and you need a willing partner to complete them.
- Some devotionals are counseling books, and the content is unsolicited and unnecessary advice.
- Some devotionals are compilations of the author’s published books.
- Some devotionals make a lasting imprint with just a few words.
- Some devotionals are written as if God is speaking and the author is journaling His words.
I started a journey of exploring devotional books and I’m currently reading 10 devotionals per day. This format has given me the opportunity to compare the style and structure of each devotional book. I liked Grace For the Moment: Volume One so much, that I purchased Grace For the Moment Volume Two and look forward to reading it as well- one for my morning devotion and one for the evening!
