Pause For Power

Join Dr. Warren Wiersbe for a Personal Bible Study with a revised version of Pause for Power: A 365 Day Journey in the Scriptures. This daily devotional will allow you to explore fifteen different books of the Bible with wisdom and insight gleaned from Wiersbe's best selling commentaries.

This devotional offers insight and encouragement, this devotional touches on real-life themes that include contentment, integrity, patience, joy, hope, ministry, love and peace. Each day's devotional includes a brief Bible passage, an excerpt about that particular passage from Dr. Wiersbe's commentaries, and questions for personal reflection. A brief prayer ends each day's Scripture Meditation and purposefully commits the reader's heart and mind to God's direction.

Here is an example:

Day 2 - Devoted to Devotions

Read Colossians 4:2 - "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful."

It has well been said that the purpose of prayer is not to get our will done in heaven, but to get God's will done on earth. Prayer is not telling God what to do or what to give. Prayer is asking God for that which He wants to do and give, according to His will (1 John 5:14-15). As we read the Word and fellowship with our Father, we discover His will and then boldly ask Him to do what He has planned. Richard Trench (1807-1886), archbishop of Dublin, said it perfectly: "Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance, it is laying hold of His willingness."

Of course, it is possible to pray in our hearts and never use the gift of speech (1 Sam. 1:13), but we are using words even if we don't say them audibly. True prayer must first come from the heart, whether the words are spoken or not.


As you pray, in what ways are you "watchful"? In what ways are you "thankful"?

The devotional is perfect to pick up at any date since it's labeled by Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc instead of specific dates for those that want to start today! The book is a hardcover, 5 by 7, and comes with a ribbon to keep track of your place. Its short enough that you can use these each and every morning to get a great start to your day.

I received this book compliments of B & B Media Group and David C Cook, for my honest review and love this devotional for my husband, since its small and compact. I would easily rate this one a perfect 5 out of 5 stars for our fast paced world where we still need God's divine inspiration to get us started on the right path for our days.
