HOW TO HAVE DAILY DEVOTION WITH GOD

Daily Scripture reading is key to a growing relationship with God. Below you will find some recommended reading plans which complement our current teaching series.


Here are some keys to having a growing daily devotion with God.

1) Set a Repeating Appointment. Like an outing with friends or date with a spouse, put it on your calendar, select a time and place.


2) Pick a Reading Plan. Use one of them below, or start a plan that allows you to read through the Bible in a year.


3) Use the SOAP Method. (see below)


4) If you miss a day, don't miss two. Life gets busy and unexpected things happen. Don't get down on yourself, just choose to not miss the appointment with God the next day.

THE SOAP JOURNALING METHOD

This is not a "dear diary" journal. Just a short entry to record what you read, what it means to you, and a written prayer to God.


No matter what reading plan you use, or how much you read, you can use this SOAP method of journaling to strengthen your time in God's Word and track what He speaks to you each day.


S - Scripture 

Open your Bible to your reading for the day. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done. look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal. 


O - Observation 

What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. 


A - Application 

Personalize what you have read. by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction. encouragement. a new promise. or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this scripture can apply to you today. 


P - Prayer 

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture. or even a prayer for a greater insight on what He may be reveal­ing to you. Remember. prayer is a two-way conversation. so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now. write it out



Remember, this is for you. It doesn't have to be long, super deep, or well-written. But this discipline will help you strengthen your Faith.

You might think, rich is the other guy. Rich is having more than you currently have. If that’s the case, you can be rich and not know it. You can be rich and not feel or act like it. In fact, most of us are richer than we think. We just aren't very good at it. It’s one thing to Be Rich. Andy wants to help us all be GOOD at it!
Living in the 21st century as a Christian is hard. So was it for the Jewish believers some 2000 years ago. That’s why James, the half-brother of Jesus, wrote a letter to encourage the believers then to press on in their trials. There's much to learn and take heart from his letter, because the very same lessons still apply today.
You may have heard many times that real Christians don’t live with deep longings or feel unsatisfied. But Jesus doesn’t shield us from the ongoing consequences of human rebellion against him. And he wants us to live in anticipation of his full redemption of creation. We are promised good things when we live unsatisfied, hungry and thirsty for righteousness, and I invite you on a journey to explore those blessings.
For those moving too fast through life, a guide to help you slow down and discover rest. In Addicted to Busy, Brady Boyd shows us how to live a life that embraces stillness and solitude, finding the peace that God wants for us.
FOMO. It’s what happens when everyone else’s great day stops us from enjoying our own. We’ll never find contentment when we’re constantly pursuing what might have been. Fighting FOMO was created by Fuse, the student ministry of NewSpring Church, to help students move past the fear of missing out and find joy in their present circumstances.
