Daily Scripture Devotional
Reading some daily Bible verses, as I said above, is a critical component to your daily devotional time. Again, I’ve found it helpful to have a plan! Find a good Bible study guide, reading plan, or devotional book to help guide you through your time in the Word.
After spending some time in the Word, we need to prayerfully consider how the Lord would have us apply His truth to our lives. This step is so often overlooked. We can study and know God’s Word, but if we are not allowing it to change our lives, we are merely hearers and not doers. We need to allow the Holy Spirit to search our hearts, reveal areas of sin and disobedience, and turn towards godliness and righteousness. Especially when it’s hard to do so.
What Is A Good Daily Devotion for Women?
There are many daily devotional resources out there. Here are a few tried and true books, apps, podcasts, and online devotions for you to consider.
Women’s Daily Devotional Apps
Devotional apps are becoming increasingly popular. They are practical, accessible, and a lot of them are completely free!
- YouVersion Bible YouVersion Bible App is a great resource for all women. It has a variety of different reading plans and devotions written by many authors. You can find daily devotions for anxiety, peace, motherhood, marriage, leadership, and many other popular topics.
- First 5 First 5 is an app created by Proverbs 31 Ministries and designed to help you give your first 5 minutes of each day to the Lord and His Word. You can choose different reading plans, join a group, and connect with others. This is a great way to do a short daily devotional and give the Lord the first-fruits of today.
- Dwell I just downloaded the Dwell app a few days ago and I’m already loving it. It’s an audio Bible. You can choose from different voices that you want to read the scriptures and different background music. For those who have a hard time reading through the Bible in a year, this may be a great option for you. Instead of reading through the Bible, listen to it. I have my Bible study time that I do early each morning. Later on, after the kids and I finish breakfast, I’ve been putting the daily reading on our Bluetooth speaker and we listen together as we get our morning chores done. It’s been a great way to set a peaceful and godly atmosphere in our home at the beginning of our day together. There is a catch with this one. It’s not free. You can get a 7-day trial, then it’s $27/year (totally worth it, in my opinion). I definitely encourage you to check this one out.
Daily Devotional Books for Women
Some women love apps, and others prefer to have a physical book. I go back and forth. The apps are great and practical, but there’s nothing like holding a great devotional book in one hand and pens, highlighters, and pencils in the other. If you love to draw, illustrate, mark your Bible, and take notes as you do your devotions, an actual book may be the better option for you. Here are a few women’s devotional books and resources.
Lifeway has a great selection of daily devotional books that have a wide range of topics from many different authors.
