Gimme 5: 31 Daily Devotions
Do you have a desire to make spending time with God a priority in your life? In today’s culture there are many distractions that compete and fight for our attention, our affection, and our devotion. Jesus left us an example of how to start prioritizing our day and put ourselves before the presence of God. It says in Mark 1:35 (NLT) “Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray.” Jesus encountered daily distractions like you and I. Imagine being pulled on by the disciples, opposed by religious groups, and sought after by multitudes of people desiring to be healed. Despite those challenges, Jesus’ first priority was putting himself before God’s presence. In this devotional we prioritize God by taking five minutes to start our day, take a moment and pray, and in turn increase our faith. As you study and travel through this thirty one day devotional, may you consistently find yourself in the presence of God, and be strengthened by the pleasure of His companionship!
