If you have a desire to grow spiritually, try incorporating devotions into your daily life. Devotions are a great place to find inspiration in your spiritual journey. Different readings cause you to reflect on the Word of God and encounter thoughtful teaching on important spiritual topics. Devotions also encourage you to spend time in prayer. While each individual day may not seem particularly impactful, when you take time with God each day, the cumulative effect will cause you to grow and mature. The more we connect with God, the more we will understand what he is saying about himself, his kingdom, and his people. It takes time to get into the habit of doing daily devotions. At first, the payoff may not seem obvious, but once devotions become a part of your daily life, you will begin to feel their amazing benefits.
