Remaining faithful to the Lord is not an easy task, especially in this day and age. Satan is using any vice possible to lure us away from our loving and almighty God, namely by perverting and diluting the truth. Our task is simple, yet daunting. We must study to present ourselves “approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). To do that, we must read and meditate on God’s Word daily. As the great psalmist said, “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked...But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night” (Psalm 1:1-2). If we seek God’s counsel and meditate on His Word daily, we WILL be truly blessed.

Therefore, we are happy to offer this Devotional Guide. Devotionals are taken from on a daily Bible reading schedule, with a devotional thought taken from each day’s text. Designed for the sole purpose of improving Bible knowledge through helpful insight. We hope this guide will bless you as you seek to grow closer to God.
