There are many Christian devotional books available to brighten your day and remind us of God’s greatness and love for us through Christ. I have here a list of 10 of them that are favorites to many people. I’m not endorsing any of these but I thought it would be good to let you know what others think about these devotional books. Check them out if you’re looking for one.
The One Year Bible NLT. If you haven’t yet, you should read through the entire Bible. My favorite and easiest translation is the New Living Translation. I’ve read through the Bible many times thanks to this book, and am now am reading through the One Year Bible NIV on Kindle. Purchase on Amazon here.
2. Streams in the Desert by L.B. Cowman. This is the only devotional that my grandma, my mom, and I have all read. This is the devotional I have given to my friends more than any other. Also, I have read this multiple years because it is just that good. Purchase on Amazon here.
3. My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers. This is another one of those devotionals I’ve read multiple times. Very deep and very encouraging. Purchase on Amazonhere.
4. Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I can’t believe it’s taken me until now to read this book. I just recently started and every day it speaks to me in a way that I need. Each daily reading is short and sweet and leaves you with a few Bible verses that will just nail you! Purchase on Amazon here.
5. Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby, Richard Blackaby, and Claude King. When I was a teenager, I read this devotional back to back years. I especially loved that it had writing space next to the devotional. For someone who is just starting out having a daily quiet time, this is a great starter book! Purchase on Amazon here.
6. Seize the Day with Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Charles Ringma. My husband Marc bought this for me for Christmas the first year of our marriage. I loved reading this and was challenged by Mr. Bonhoeffer, an amazing man of God and martyr of the Christian faith. Everyone can learn from him. Purchase on Amazon here.
7. Sparkling Gems from the Greek by Rick Renner. My dad recommended this to me years ago, but I always had chosen a devotional before I remembered. I’ve been going through it this past year, and have loved how Mr. Renner picks a greek word (or a few) from a passage of Scripture and explains it throughly. This is a great read for someone who wants to know the Bible in a deeper way, but doesn’t know where to start. Purchase on Amazon here.

It’s good to sit down with a good Christian devotional. My favorite from the above list is Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby, Richard Blackaby, and Claude King, however I wouldn’t classify it as ‘devotional’ myself. It’s more instructional on how to walk by the spirit of God. I found it so valuable that I ran a several-month small group course using it. Those who took it were seriously impacted in a positive, spiritual way. If you haven’t checked that one out yet, I urge you to.
