Devotions: Suggested Resources

First, let me start off by saying there is no wrong way to do devotions. Unless you are just “going through the motions,” and not really focusing on God.

Bible Reading Plans

Reading Plans are probably one of the easiest ways to use in your devotional time. There are plenty of plans/lists out on the internet to choose from. Some focus just on Psalms & Proverbs, while others focus on just one book of the Bible. Some Reading Plans even let you finish the entire Bible in 90 days. Personally, I think that’s too much reading and you are reading the Bible too fast. There are some plans that take 2-3 years to read through the entire Bible. Here is a Reading Plan I recommend, since we’ve used it. Just print it out and you can read the entire Bible in one year in chronological format.

Devotion Books & Journals

There are tons of devotional books available on the market today. I even see them in the grocery store! With the wide variety of books available, it’s fun to switch books every year or every few months. Once you start a book and you truly are not getting anything out of it, switch to another! Don’t just keep fighting your way through a book you do not connect with. A favorite online store of ours is They have hundreds of books to choose from. is also a favorite, but beware that sometimes the books may already have marks/underlining/highlighting from the previous owner.

Other Recommendations:

Classic devotional books are truly a wonderful resource. Although I find that more mature Christians seem to gravitate towards these. In fact, several of these books are available online, so no need to even purchase a book. Many websites today offer a daily devotion subscription where the daily devotion arrives by email. Here are a few classic titles to choose from:
