3 TIPS FOR A MORE EFFECTIVE DEVOTIONAL LIFE
Daily devotionals like the Open Heavens devotional are a great help to your spiritual life. They ensure that you set out time for God in your day, no matter how busy it gets. Especially if you take them first thing in the morning.
Devotionals, when used the right way can help transform your life more and more daily. To get the best out of your daily devotional, apply the following steps.
1. PRAY BEFORE AND AFTER TAKING THE DEVOTIONAL
A devotional is a spiritual literature and you can not get the best out of it from a carnal mind. It is important to tune your spirit to the right posture and invite the Holy Spirit to come and teach you through the words on the devotional before you begin.
Then after the devotional, it is important to engage in prayers over the words your spirit has received. The word of God combined with prayers produce mind-blowing results. Thankfully, we provide you with the daily devotional, declarations, and powerful prayers everyday on this platform.
2. WRITE OUT KEY POINTS
Do not be mindless about your devotional time. It is a special time for God to speak to you. Have a book, jotter, or journal dedicated to writing out key points and scriptures from the devotional.
As God speaks more to your spirit, write those down as well. Some of the things you write down may be keys that will help you navigate seasons. Be sure to visit what you have written down often.
3. MEDITATE AND APPLY
Do not be just a reader of the Word. Meditate on that word all through your day and seek out ways to practically apply it. That is when you can enjoy the fruits of the word because your ways will then be prosperous and you will have good success (Joshua 1:8). The Word of God is powerful and does wonders when applied.
Do not forget that you are not part of the family of Christ yet if you haven’t accepted the Lord Jesus into your heart. If you have not and are ready to, say the prayer below: “Lord Jesus, I come before You today with a broken and contrite heart full of repentance. Please, forgive me all my sins. Today, I surrender my life to You, I believe that Jesus is Lord and I confess it with my mouth. Jesus, come into my life and save my soul from eternal destruction in hellfire. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen”.
Congratulations if you said that prayer. Welcome to the family of Christ (rccgonline.org)
