A “devotion” is a time set aside to reflect on God and his promises. This usually includes Bible reading, because God speaks to us through his written Word, strengthening our faith in him and deepening our understanding of his ways. The insights that others have gained from God’s word can also be a great benefit to us. This page includes links to and suggestions for resources that may help you in your daily devotional life.
