Devotional: Draw Near W1D2

Tuesday – January 7

Read – John 12:7-10, John 1:1-3

SOAP – John 1:1-3


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God. The Word was with God in the beginning. All things were created by him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.


“All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.” This well-known hymn was sown in my heart as a child. Today, my husband and I constantly point our kids to the awesomeness of God as we spend time in nature. It is amazing to enter into worship with our children as we explore the vastness and glory of His creation.

From the mountains to the seas, from the bugs and flowers and trees, to the way He created me, God’s works reveal His creativity, wisdom, and greatness. All things were created by Him, and apart from Him not one thing would have been made.

Lord, we marvel at Your creativity and affirm Your greatness in all You have made. As we walk day by day with our children, families, and friends, help us to glorify Your name by pointing to Your greatness in creation. Amen.
