Connect To God Through the Word & Prayer
The Holy Spirit is the One who can make us more like Christ. He uses Scripture and everyday life to form Christlikeness in us. Our role is to cooperate with God’s grace at work in our life. One of the ways we can cooperate is by starting each day with the Word of God: reading, studying, memorizing, and praying God’s Word.
When we start each day this way, the Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to release and form the life of Christ in us. This is how we “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord.” – 2 Peter 3:18.
Reading God’s Word: Slowly and thoughtfully read the passage from God’s Word each day.
Meditating on God’s Word: Focus specifically on the verse highlighted for meditation.
Memorizing God’s Word: Say and repeat the memory verse several times. By the end of the week, you will have it memorized.
Finally, in addition to whatever else you are talking to God about in your prayers each day, also pray through the Scripture you read, turning it into a prayer. Subscribe to receive the Daily Devotions in your email each morning and use the buttons below to read Daily Devotions for this week.
