Lifeless Routine

Woman: Some people think you should read the Bible and pray every day, but that just sounds like a ritual to me!  I get more out of time with God when it just hits me.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: You know, sometimes our devotional life can become just a meaningless routine. In fact, that’s what happened to the Old Testament Israelites. God had commanded the priests to burn incense and tend to the lamps and offer sacrifices every morning. And they did, morning after morning after morning, until they forgot why they were doing it all. But those routines were still important.

I’ve discovered that it’s much easier to breathe new life back into a lifeless routine than to get life going where there’s no routine established at all.

If you find that you’re just going through the motions in your devotional life, don’t give up. Ask God to meet with you as you’re in prayer and in His Word. He can make it a time of true worship and fellowship.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
