Designed for Devotion by Dianne Neal Matthews




Designed for Devotion
A 365 Day Journey from Genesis to Revelation



The title has a 3 fold meaning:
1. We are designed to be devoted to God
2. God designed his word to help us have a personal relationship with Him
3. The book will help increase our devotion to God and his word

Each book of the Bible is included in this study and with each we are shown some details from the book
-purpose
-author
-historical background
-highlight of characters
-passages that portray Jesus

This study goes along wonderfully with my reading the Bible in a year study. It reinforces what I am already reading and gives a little more commentary to go along with the Bible passages.
If you are using this devotional solely I do suggest you first read the Bible passages noted right under the title, each day.
This will give you the daily word that Ms. Matthews is drawing from, so don't skip it! Each day is just a single page, easily read in 5 or 10 minutes. Reading the scripture references along with it will add another 10-15 minutes. 20 -25 minutes a day and you are well on your way to a devoted study of the word.
We are designed to be devoted to God. Reading his beautiful words ot us is so necessary in our walk. This devotional is a great asset to growing your walk and journey.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
