Doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think and transforms the spirit of the mind. As we read and journal the Word of God, we begin to learn the heart and ways of God. Then, when we face situations in life, we begin to respond in the same way that Jesus would.

Watch this short video by Pastor Wayne that explains how to do devotions and its importance to our walk with God!


Daily devotions re-pattern how we think and transform the spirit of the mind. As we read and journal the Word of God, we begin to learn God's heart and ways. Then, when we face situations in life, we begin to respond in the same way that Jesus would.

The Life Journal Daily Devotions method is designed to serve you in your growth with Christ. You can be flexible in how you use it, but be sure to develop a healthy habit of spending time daily with the Lord. Some have asked, "When is the best time for my devotions? In the morning or in the evening?" The answer to that is, "The best time is when you're at your best." If you're a morning person, do your devotions in the morning. If you're an evening person, do your devotions at night. The bottom line is that Jesus deserves your best, so give him the best. 

When you read the Bible text, read with an open heart and ask Jesus to reveal Himself, give you words of encouragement, direction, and correction. (See 2 Timothy 3:16) When you have a life lesson from the Scriptures, we encourage you to journal using the S.O.A.P. method explained below, or in Pastor Wayne's linked video.


Open your Bible to the reading for today. Take your time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write that Scripture in your journal.


Examine what God was speaking to through this passage to its original audience. Write what you observe is happening in this Scripture. What does this reveal about God and His character or ways?


Personalize what you have read by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life today.


This can be as simple as asking God to help you use the Scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say!


Here are a few helpful resources to help you get started with Daily Devotions. We pray God would give you an ever-increasing desire to know Him through His Word, the understanding to grasp His ways, and that He would bless you with new revelation of who He is every time you open the Word and sit at His feet.

Divine Mentor book by Pastor Wayne 

Do You Have a Sacred Enclosure Around the Roots of Your Soul? Think about what you deal with daily. Maybe you suffer the wear and tear of long commutes and even longer work days. Or you find yourself juggling endless e-mails, phone calls, and text messages.

Noise. Chatter. Crowds. Politics. Talk radio. Television. Bills. Worries. Responsibilities. Deadlines. Endless chores. Demanding children. Relational bruises.

Life wears on us. We can't evade most of it, and that's not really the solution anyway. What we need to do is protect the most important part of us—that deep-down, soulish part of life that links us with our Creator.

In The Divine Mentor, you will discover how to enjoy a dynamic, vital, and intimate relationship with God as you learn to hear Him speak daily through the Bible. You'll embark on an adventure that will introduce you to His handpicked mentors, men and women who may save your health, your marriage, your ministry, and your future.

Wayne Cordeiro challenges you to develop a lifelong habit--the one thing Jesus says is truly necessary--that will preserve your soul, establish your legacy, and hold God's Living Word inside you.
