Don’t just ✅ the box…

Sometimes I’m told that people feel that “having a quiet time” or “doing their devotions” feels like checking a box.

I get that.

So what?

I would even suggest that ESPECIALLY then is it important to be reminded of God’s promises.

Indeed, when we just ✅ the box, we are actively cultivating a heart to love God’s word, so that we can agree with the Psalmist:

“Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:49-50‬ ‭ESV‬‬

My hope is is the Lord, not my devotions. They are just a tool to ready my heart to hear and have life!
