Specialists say it takes 30 days to form a habit. It’s time we made being with God a habit—built, one day at a time, into our daily lives.
More than anything, our God wants us to spend time with him. But in a culture of instant downloads and drive-through lattes, we learn that faster is better and slowing down is not an option. If we look carefully at Scripture, though, we see God has calling us to live intentionally—relationally—with him.
In 30 Words, you'll find encouragement to open your heart, mind, and soul to God. Each day you'll focus on a single word about God and your relationship with him. In this second edition of 30 Words, refreshed content, discussion questions for group study or personal reflection, and quotes from Christian leaders will help you make a habit of spiritual development—one that will transform you from the inside out.
30 Words is not only a great devotional but with the topics in the book, it works as a great reminder for seasoned believers & new believers alike that we can never get away from the basics! You won't leave the book unchanged. Great read!

“The reality is, God never intended for us to remain the same; he intended for us to remain obedient. For in remaining obedient, we will not remain the same. In our obedience, we open ourselves up to being totally and radically changed by Jesus.” (Page 21)
“Many of today’s Christians are focused on obtaining what they want instead of being content knowing God will provide for their needs.” (Page 16)
“Jesus didn’t call the equipped; he equipped the called.” (Page 57)
“We cannot go about our lives half-heartedly walking with God in hopes that he will give us a full-heart transformation. It just doesn’t work.” (Pages 20–21)
“And although many of us don’t realize it, much of our time is spent trying to fill voids with substitutes and replacements rather than reaching for the real stuff.” (Pages 8–9)
