A disciple’s devotional life is like the foundation of a house: You can’t see it, but it’s there. The entire house depends on it for stability. When the foundation is weak or cracks begin to appear on the walls, the whole house is in danger of collapsing.
Just as the foundation of a house is underground and mostly unseen, so is our devotional life. It’s not something people see when they look at us, but it’s still there. It’s what we are doing with God when no one else is looking. Devotional life is our 24/7 relationship with God in worship and in life. It begins with a focused time with God in the mornings, but it doesn’t stop there. When I walk to my car, God is there. When I drive with a friend to the store, God is with us.
Every day we need to ask ourselves, “Will I be in touch with God today, or is my spiritual phone disconnected?” It’s so easy for us to go through life with our spiritual phone turned off, and then we wonder why God isn’t speaking to us. He is! Tune in to Him and keep your foundation strong!
