Christmas Is Over, Now Start Daily Devotionals

Have you ever gone without food for a day?
If so, you know how quickly hunger sets in. And if you go without food for too long your strength will begin to diminish. The same is true in our spiritual lives. The Bible is our "soul" food. It is a sign of health for a Christian to have an appetite for the Word of God. It is the only way that we will be well-nourished and strong, spiritually. Yet, many Christians consistently try to get by with only one "meal" a week - Sunday morning. You could not survive long, physically if all you were eating was one meal a week,
and neither can you make it spiritually, on such small portions of God's Word.

We gain tremendous rewards from having daily devotion.
The final reason we should have a daily quiet time is the tremendous results it brings into our lives. God has promised many things to those who take the time to get to know him through His Word and prayer. Some of the rewards of having a daily quiet time include:

Joy (Psalm 16:11)
Strength (Isaiah 40:29-31)
Peace (Psalm 119:165)
Stability (Psalm 16:8-9)
Success (Joshua 1:8)
Answered prayer (John 15:7)
Personal testimony (Acts 4:13)
