Recently I wrote an article encouraging you that there is always time to have a personal devotional. All it takes is a little planning and knowing what options are available. One of my suggestions included the use of a personal devotional guide. As a result, today I want to suggest to you some great devotional books. These suggestions are based a variety of reasons, which I’ll explain with each recommendation.
- New Morning Mercies by Paul Tripp. This suggestion is the newest one to be published. It makes the list because of Tripp’s emphasis on grace each day. Recently, it has been my conviction that Christians need to be reminded of grace on a continual basis. Also, we need to remember how grace influences our lives beyond salvation. Grace should create a peaceful, hopeful, and positive change within us. This devotional accomplishes this because it is Christ-centered than one based on our interests.
- My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers. Many may already be familiar with this devotional because it is a classic. It’s strength is due to Chamber’s own reflections about how God works despite our circumstances. Chambers himself went through years of spiritual dryness, which is reflected in this devotional. So if you feel distant from God or confused then My Utmost For His Highest will provide some clarity. The best part of this devotional is that it comes in a variety of formats. There are journal based editions, old English editions, contemporary English editions, and more.
