Book Giveaway: Daily Light from the Bible

Daily Light from the BibleThis little devotional has floated around our home for years, but I just recently decided to explore it for myself. It’s simple, easy to read, and has become a refreshing way to start my days at work with the right mindset.

My favorite part of Daily Light from the Bible is that the entire devotional is scripture. Story and commentary devotionals certainly have their place (I’ll be giving away one or two of those this month), but God’s word is more than enough on it’s own. It is powerful, challenging, and peace-giving.

In this book, there are two devotional readings–morning and evening–for each day of the year. The scriptures that comprise each reading are arranged around a topic. For example, the reading this morning was:

They that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.–I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

I have been young and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.–For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints, they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.–The LORD will not forsake his people for his great name’s sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.–Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us.

Be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, the Lord is my helper, I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Who would like to incorporate this book into their time with God during 2016? I’m giving away a (used) copy of Daily Light from the Bible this week! Giveaway ends January 14th.

    Thanks for doing this giveaway, Leah! I studied the book of Romans with David Platt’s secret church materials (http://www.radical.net/resources/secret_church) over the summer and it was amazing. When you take the time to go through the text in small pieces you can get so much out of it! Now I’ve switched to going through canonically and reading ~10 chapters a day to get a little more of the big picture plan of God’s love story. You can learn from the Bible in big chunks too. (-:

    • That sounds great. Last year I enjoyed taking time to highlight every reference to God as I read. I’m considering buying a journaling Bible for this year and filling it up with notes.

    My times with God all are different because I talk to Him in many places and at different times. My bible study is often in my recliner but it may be dark outside or it may be “high noon”. I appreciate the chance to win this devotional.
