Devotion to the Lord


“Go and proclaim in the hearing of Jerusalem, Thus says the LORD,

    “I remember the devotion of your youth,

        your love as a bride,

    how you followed me in the wilderness,

        in a land not sown.

(Jeremiah 2:2, ESV)

I have a daily devotional in my Kindle.  I like having it on my phone because I always have it with me. I also have the Bible on my phone.  When I’m struggling to understand what the Lord is asking me to do, Holy Spirit draws me to a scripture to meditate on.

When I opened my devotional this morning, Kindle was kind enough to tell me that I did not read the devotional yesterday. The enemy used this to try to discourage me. I started to question the indicators of my devotion to the Lord.

Having a time set aside each day to meditate on God‘s word is a good thing. Sometimes our lives get so busy that we forget. Having a daily devotional helps some people stay on track.

The Lord drew me to this scripture to help me understand devotion to Him.  God‘s relationship with each person is personal.  He said, “… how you followed me in the wilderness,  in a land not sown.”

The Lord asked me to go into this wilderness, and to follow Him closely. I don’t know how far He wants me to go or how long it will take, but He will be with me every step of the way.

I encourage you to ask the Lord for a definition of devotion. It will be personal, and it may change over time.  His burden is light, but it requires sacrifice. Trust Him as He brings you to your promised land.
