Sometimes we go through times and seasons in life when we question our mere existence. It is normal to have those episodes in life where the ups and downs seem tumultuous and stressful. For most Christians, this is the time to draw close to God. This is the time to seek divine intervention, guidance, and protection and seek special anointing to get through the tumultuous time. It is the time to draw close to God through devotional materials, prayers, reflection, and meditation. Luckily, most people will go through these times and get out stronger and better than before. Add to that the fact that everyone is battling some form of spiritual war and you understand why you need these devotionals on a daily basis.
Even if you are not going through a difficult time. Even when things are going smooth on your end. Wouldn’t it be nice to know every single day of your existence you are drawing close to your maker? It will strengthen you as a Christian and equip you with the requisite armor to fight and flee the devil should he ever come striking in your life. How do you draw close to God whether or not you are facing a difficult time?
Thanks to technological advances, today there are very many devotional materials you can find online. These are guided materials that teach you more about the Bible and help draw you close to God through guided meditation and reflections. All you need to do is find a devotional blog with relevant material that aligns with your Christian faith. The second step would be to set aside some quiet time when you can reflect on the beauty and goodness of the Lord, get to read your devotional material, meditate on the word, get to read your Bible and then spend some time in adoration, praise, prayer and worship of the Lord your God.
That said, how do you identify the right devotional material seeing as it is anyone can post just about anything to drive their selfish agenda? Always seek divine intervention in everything you plan to do. Pray to God to lead you and once you start your search, you can bet you will land in very useful devotional materials that will draw you close to your maker. Learn to seek divine guidance in everything you intend to read or do. Ask God to give you a discerning spirit so you can tell apart the right devotional material. A good blog should be updated on a regular basis with fresh content that touches on everyday challenges that Christians undergo.
Ensure the devotional material aligns with your faith, this can never be overemphasized enough. With so much going on in the world today and with so many people having differing beliefs. The holy spirit should guide you in a divine way to know the right material to absorb for your spiritual growth and nourishment and more importantly have you draw close to your maker.
