What do you use for personal devotionals? Briefly mine is an extended time reading the Scriptures, not by topic but working through a book, often repeating the chapters I read the day before to allow more gleaning of truth. As I read, it is with the attitude of prayer and seeing the Wisdom of God in each passage. Often the Holy Spirit brings to my very heart the ugly of sin, God's judgment, and the faithful righteousness of my Savior. Along the way, I am more often lead by the Holy Spirit in the text of a great Hymn or Spiritual song. Here is one that come to mind: What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms; what a blessedness, what a peace is mine, leaning on the everlasting arms. Refrain: Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms. O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms; O how bright the path grows from day to day, leaning on the everlasting arms. (Refrain) What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms. (Refrain) (written by Elisha Hoffman who wrote over 2000 hymns in his lifetime). One of my favorite that Elisha Hoffman wrote is "What a Wonderful Savior." It follows the form of presenting truth as a call with the response "What a wonderful Savior" as an Amen to that truth. See: What a Wonderful Savior! What format do you normally follow in your devotional life?
