Meditations for Daily Growth

Obeying the Gospel

Reverence vs. Pick and Choose (August 17)

Reverence vs. Pick and Choose (August 17)

Diligently Seeking God

Zerrissenheit (August 17)

Zerrissenheit (August 17)

God is lovingly concerned about our brokenness. He knows we are “weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” At great cost, He has made it possible for us to seek Him, find Him, and find in Him every bit of the wholeness we have lost.

Devotional Meditation

Rather than thinking about God casually, meditation is a deep pondering of His truth. When we meditate devotionally, the facts about God are given more than a “passing glance.” We think about them intently and lovingly so their meaning can truly sink in.

Daily Devotional Books

Unfortunately, many of the best-selling devotionals are popular not because they produce greater devotion to God but because they give the reader a sugary “high.” They aim to make the reader feel better, but they do little to stimulate significant spiritual growth.

Devotion to God

Devotional strength must be built up by constant, disciplined practice over time. Paul reminded his young friend Timothy of this when he said, “Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all” (1 Timothy 4:15).
