I've grown up hearing about "devotions" and how a committed Christian devotes a certain amount of time every day to reading the Bible and praying. It's like the person is giving that time to God.
Sometimes it is necessary to make that commitment and to schedule in time with God. I get that. But along with that comes both disappointment in self when you miss a day (or more) and an actual limitation on our time with God.
A lifestyle of worship includes God in most things you do all day. The person is doing everything for God, and it includes conversing with Him throughout the day. But it seems to me that Christians who are living this so-called lifestyle for God seem to often neglect to spend time in the Word.
I am one that believes fully in the lifestyle of worship. But I am at this point now where I think I need to be more purposeful about scheduling a specific time to spend in God's word and prayer. I can still do both throughout the day, but the actual devoting of a specific amount of time sounds really honoring to me.
What do you think? Do you schedule time with God? Does that make Him less or more important?
One thing is for sure, I think there's room for both devotions and a lifestyle of worship in our relationships with God.
