Devotional Time is a need for every Christian. I'm calling out all men in the church to continue to have devotional time. Whether that is just reading Scripture and praying or going through a daily devotional book. I prefer to stick with the Bible and Prayer. If you are a new believer in Jesus Christ, it might be helpful to have a daily devotional but be careful, like any Christian writings that are not the 66 books of the Bible, are fallible. Also, it is a good idea to track one's progress of their devotional time. How I do it is a little bit weird. Since I want to be open and honest with my devotional time, I email myself my devotional. Because I don't trust most applications. Most note taking applications a human can read it. While, if I email myself, only I can read the message, because I use Proton Mail. For the Bible application I use Bible.com App on my smart phone, with the NASB as my default Bible version because of the accuracy, it is a good idea to study other versions of the Bible and compare the versions.
If one is having a hard time doing their devotionals and wishing that they can do it out of want than duty, it might be a good idea to see were your heart is at. This happen to me, I threw away my idols, of politics and philosophy. And started to consume a lot of Christian content on YouTube. Desiring to read the Bible came naturally to me once I threw away my idols. So, if you are struggling to read and pray daily, it might be a signed that something is not quite right in your heart. The dumb thing with me, I kind of knew what eventually happen to me, was to dump, politics and man's philosophy, and be totally in focus on Jesus. I said to myself over the years, if Jesus is what really matters, then I should just focus on Jesus. That didn't happen until this summer.
That is the basics of how I do devotionals. In terms of time. I have a reminder to do my devotional but I rarely stick to the actual time. But I do it within the day.
If you are not a Christian, I hope that you would become one. How do you become a Christian? Repent and put your trust in Jesus Christ. Besides the Bible, there are some really good resources that one can go to in order to learn more about the Christian faith and to keep you strong in one's walk in Jesus, like Grace to You, Answers in Genesis, and Ligonier Ministry.
