Every Christian knows one of the most difficult aspects of the Christian Life is having regular devotions. It seems strange that, of all the commands given in the Bible, one of the most difficult to carry out is one of the simplest—we are commanded simply to have a relationship with God. There are, as in every relationship, two aspects—first, we are to talk to God through the regular practice of prayer, and second, we are to allow him to speak to us through the regular practice of reading His Word. I’ve recently, after many years of resisting, began getting up early in the morning and having my devotions first thing, and that it works wonders for consistency. If anyone is reading this, what methods and timeframes work best for you?
