With Easter fast approaching, I wanted to share some of the best selling daily devotional books that I found on Amazon. I find that devotionals are a great way to help us understand Biblical truths that can assist us in our relationship with God and bring us more peace, comfort, joy, strength and so much more.
In choosing the daily devotional books, I tried to get a variety that would speak to all kinds of different people and circumstances. Also, with Easter just around the corner it is the perfect time to focus on our relationship with God. After all, He is the source of life and our hope for the life to come.
In The Awe of God, John Bevere asks the question:
“Do you long for an intimate relationship with your Creator, but He seems elusive? Perhaps it is because something utterly essential is missing—the fear of the Lord. Don’t let this frighten you. Fearing God is very different than being afraid of God. It’s the key to everything.“
This is a very important book if you want to build a strong faith that will stand through difficult times. You will come to understand what it means to “work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”
In The Awe of God, you will find out why godly fear is the foundation of so many things such as:
– Wisdom, understanding, and knowledge
– Foresight, clarity, and divine direction
– Maturity and conformity to the image of Jesus Christ
– Building an eternal legacy
– Confidence, fearlessness, and security
– Freedom from the fear of man as all lesser fears are eclipsed
Refresh and strengthen your relationship with God with this book which is meant to be read slowly and intentionally.

In The Lives We Actually Have by Kate Bowler and Jessica Richie, you will find “Warm and witty blessings found within the struggles of our shared humanity”.
Blessed are you, the strange duck.
You with the very intense hobbies.
Or the collection of movies or mugs or sneakers.
You with the hometown or home team that makes you very, very proud.
You, my dear, in all your intricacies . . . are a marvel.
According to the authors:
“We live in a world that demands relentless perfection. Happy marriages and easy friendships. Bucket list–level adventures and matching family photos. But what if our actual lives don’t feel very #blessed? Might our everyday existence be worthy of a blessing too? Even an average Tuesday?
Kate Bowler and Jessica Richie offer creative, faith-based blessings that center gratitude and hope while acknowledging our real, messy lives. Formatted like a prayer book, The Lives We Actually Have is an oasis and a landing spot for weary souls, with blessings that focus on the full range of human moments: garbage days, lovely days, grief-stricken days, and even (especially) completely ordinary days. These heartfelt blessings are a chance to exhale when we feel everything from careworn to restless, devastated to bored. Let’s have a reminder that we don’t need to wait for perfect lives when we can bless the lives we actually have.”
Healing After Loss by Martha W. Hickman is a wonderful guide for dealing with any kind of loss. It is filled with devotions and quotes that will inspire, strengthen and heal.
“When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.”- Charles Bearde
“It is the nature of grace to always fill spaces that have been empty.” – Goethe
“In search of my mother’s garden, I found my own.” – Alice Walker
According to one reviewer:
“The Hospice folks gave me a copy of this book after my husband died. I couldn’t even pick it up for months, and one day when I did, I read the short meditation and relevant quote from literature, and it was the right time for me to do so. It’s been almost four years now, and because it’s dated for a 365-day year, there’s always a meditation to read that seems fresh, year after year. It’s not overtly “religious” – which I like. I have given this book to six people so far, and always keep new ones on hand to have ready to give the grieving person. It’s the kind of thing you can read when you feel like it and ignore when you don’t, but it’s there for you when you need to be uplifted.”
No matter what kind of loss you are dealing with or how recent, this is a great resources to help you heal.
Stand Strong by Our Daily Bread Ministries is a wonderful devotional that is written for men by men as the title states to help them with issues that are specific to them.
This devotional encourages men to stand strong in the power of the Lord.
“As a man, the pressures of life can mount on your shoulders. You can feel like you are carrying the world in your own strength. But you are not alone. God is carrying you through it all.
This easy-to-read devotional is designed to:
– Help you strengthen your faith with wisdom and testimonies from men;
– Increase your intimacy with the Lord through 365 short daily readings;
– Trust God when life seems overwhelming;
– Learn to apply biblical principles to your life each day.
Trade in the pressure for peace when you learn to stand strong on the foundation of your faith.”
