Today I wanted to share with you all some of my very favorite devotionals that have encouraged me in my daily walk with Jesus. While I don't think devotionals should take the place of Bible reading or replace your time in prayer, I know that devotionals have been very helpful in supplementing my faith. If you're looking for a great resource to help you alongside your daily Bible reading I highly recommend any of these devotional books, and I've linked them all for you here too!
This is definitely my favorite devotional as of late. I love the language Tripp uses in this devotional and how I am challenged and encouraged each and every day. “Forget ‘behavior modification’ or feel-good aphorisms. Tripp knows that what we really need is an encounter with the living God. Then we’ll be prepared to trust in God’s goodness, rely on his grace, and live for his glory each and every day.”
The Songs of Jesus is a devotional through the book of Psalms. I love reading through the Psalms because I love reading about the human-ness of David, how he turns from grumbling to praising God, and I feel like I can absolutely relate. Reading through the Psalms each day encourages a deeper intimacy and relationship with Jesus.
“We never know where God has hidden His streams. We see a large stone and have no idea that it covers the source of a spring. We see a rocky areas and never imagine that it is hiding a fountain. God leads me into hard and difficult places, and it is there I realize I am where eternal streams abide. Day by day, Streams in the Desert will lead you from life's dry desolate places to the waters of the River of Life -- and beyond, to their very Source.”
I couldn’t describe this one any better.
We can’t wait for this one to come out! Both of us read “Wild and Free” by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan and felt like it contained such sweet and freeing words for our soul. This devotional encourages women to claim their identity in Christ and reject the lies that enemy tries to make us believe that we are “never enough” and that we’re “too much.” This devotional is available for preorder and will be released on May 1st, I can’t wait to get my hands on it! Go preorder yours!
While it’s not exactly a “devotional” this collection of prayers including topics of “creativity, freedom, marriage, motherhood, fears, simplicity,” and so on will be an encouragement to your heart as a “dreamer and doer.” As our friend Melissa said “we all dream dreams and we all do things.”
Ashley loves this devotional by Charles Spurgeon, and what better way to be encouraged and inspired by God’s word in the morning and finding peace and wisdom in His words in the evening as you reflect on your day.
This was the first devotional I think I ever read when I was in college, and came very highly recommended to me. If you are new devotionals, this is such a great one filled with so much wisdom and love for God’s word. The messages each day cut straight to the heart of the gospel, and can be read year after year.
Which ones did we miss? I'd love to know which devotionals have been helpful to you in your walk with the Lord.
