Welcome to Growing In Devotion. My name is Rory Brannum and I created this website to provide practical help for Christians to establish and maintain their daily quiet times.
I am a Christian who has discovered a few simple and transferable keys to success in my daily devotions. I offer them to you in hopes that you will experience the joy of regularly meeting with God.
Sadly, many Christians that I’ve met approach their devotional lives expecting to fail. Because of that, they have set the bar too low.
We cringe at the thought of checklists and accountability, primarily because they smell of legalism. I’m also opposed to legalistic motivations for spending time with God. When we’re in love with someone, shouldn’t we want to be together?
I believe that a lack of desire to meet with God is an intimacy problem, not a discipline problem. And yet we usually try to solve it by applying more discipline. While discipline is good, without intimacy it won’t affect any lasting change in our daily devotions. And we won’t develop intimacy with God if we don’t have much of a personal devotional life. There is a solution.
Would you like to grow in intimacy with God? If your answer is “Yes”, then I assure you that it can happen, and sooner than you might think.
Join me as I share the simple keys that God has used in my life to transform my quiet times. By subscribing to this blog, you can be sure that you will get updates as soon as they are published.
Is this just another daily devotional blog?
Many excellent blogs and books that deal with the quiet time are really just daily devotionals. They offer pre-prepared spiritual meals that can, if we’re not diligent, take the place of personal Bible reading and prayer. While these are helpful supplements, I have chosen to emphasize our need to daily discover God’s truth for ourselves. This is not a daily devotional site. Instead, I will provide practical tools and encouragement to assist you in developing intimacy and consistency in your daily quiet times.
