Daily Devotion… hmmm… brother Jason shared about doing our daily devotion… Is it a must for us to do so? Is it a crime not to do so? How often must we do it? How should we do it?...

He said that doing our daily devotion is like taking our daily meal. We won’t die if we don’t eat a meal, won’t die if we skip 2 meals… 3 meals….. don’t eat for a day… two days.. three days…. But try not eating for a few months….

There are often many hindrances when we want to do our devotion. There are physical hindrances such as no proper place, too many distractions – television, computer, handphone… But this is quite easy to overcome. If the television is standing in the way, just off it… I’m quite sure that it will not automatically switch on on its own. There are also spiritual hindrances. But this is not that often – you hardly hear a whisper that says “ don’t do your daily devotion”.. but the hardest to overcome is the hindrance in our heart. How passionate are we about our daily devotion? Do we feel that there is something missing when we missed a day of devotion?

Think of the daily devotion as we are dating God…

It is very important for us to do our daily devotion… Here are some of the suggested steps that he gave to do our devotion :
1. Choose a right time
2. Find a right place
3. Discover a body posture
4. In God’s presence
5. Read the bible
6. Listen to God
7. Respect in deed

Daily devotion should be a part of our life. It is important and will indeed help us to understand more and also get closer to God. It is also very helpful especially in facing uncertainties in life.
