Description

Recognizing that men and women face unique spiritual needs, the The One Year Book of Devotions for Women includes 365 convenient, concise, and uplifting devotionals to help you focus each day on God's priorities. Each day's selection includes a key NLT Scripture verse, a devotional reading, and a suggested Bible passage for further study.

From the Introduction

When David penned Psalm 23, he pictured a good shepherd leading his flock beside peaceful streams and resting them in green meadows. The Lord is our Shepherd, and we are his sheep. The nourishment he provides for us in found in the green meadows of Scripture. As we follow him and "graze" the passages of the Bible, we will discover our strength renewed all the days of our life! There will always be a fresh thought, a truth to be relearned, or an insight we have never had before.

Sometimes, however, it's hard to know how to follow the Shepherd, or to find the green pastures he longs to lead us to. That is why we have created the One Year Book of Devotions for Women. It is designed to help women read the Scriptures regularly and see that what God said years ago to David and all the other biblical writers still speaks to women today.

As you turn to these green pastures for a word of comfort, direction, or instruction, you will find relevant biblical passages and helpful explanations, which will serve to make the truth of the Bible clear, its message understandable, and its points applicable.

May your cup overflow with God's blessings as you "graze" on the pages of God's Word, grasp its meaning, and embrace its truth. --Jill Briscoe from Introduction to The One Year Book of Devotions for Women

Sample Text

Elohim

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

TO READ: Genesis 1:1-25

Used 2,500 times in the Old Testament, the name Elohim reveals the mighty strength of God. El is the Hebrew word for "strength" while "alah" or "oah" means "faithfulness." God's faithfulness begins afresh each day (Lamentations 3:23). God is always fresh, never stale. We can depend on it!

The Bible is not a scientific textbook, but a book about faith. It does not tell us how the heavens go, but how to go to heaven. It also tells us who makes the heavens go and who upholds them "by the mighty power of his command" (Hebrews 1:3).

Elohim meets us in Genesis. In the beginning of days and nights, flowers and trees, fish and mammals, he tells us by his name that he is the Creator of all. God is strong enough to make myriad universes and faithful enough to keep them all spinning safely at the right speed.

And what does this name mean to me? It gives me confidence. It tells me that if God made the world, he can make my world spin around with a little more order than I've managed to create in it! It gives me something--Someone--on whom I can depend. If God is perfect faithfulness, renewing his pledge to me morning by morning, I can go to sleep in peace evening by evening, Elohim can be known; Elohim can be trusted; Elohim is there!
