The blessings and benefits of the personal devotional life are worth every bit of the cost, discipline and sacrifice involved in having a vital personal devotional life.
David Williams wrote a song that describes the benefits and blessings of the personal devotional life:
In The Morning
In the morning, that’s when I meet my Savior
And then, I His wondrous presence know.
In the morning, I tell Him all my problems,
That’s when I to God’s own throne room go.
In the morning He shows me all His mercies,
And forgives my sins from day to day.
In the morning He understands my heartaches.
As I seek to walk with Him each day.
In the morning He fills my cup with blessings,
And His love melts all my fears away.
In the morning we walk and talk together
As He listens to all that I say.
In the morning I sing to Him His praises
That have caused this sad heart now to sing.
In the morning my heart is broken often
As I think how few lost souls I bring.
In the morning I hear him whisper gently
That in time He’ll show me all His will.
In the morning, that’s when he shows me simply
How ‘that day’ His will I can fulfill.
In the morning I bring my friends and loved ones,
And each need I always leave Him there.
In the morning He answers through the Bible
As I spend this time with Him in prayer.
In the morning He opens wide my vision
Of a world that’s dying now in sin.
In the morning He makes me want to tell them
How that they can have real peace in Him.
O God, establish my life in your will and way.
