When you begin the day with a new attitude based on the Bible, you know it’s going to be  transformational in how you look at people and events. Beginning the day with New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional by Paul David Tripp is a trip (pun intended) through power-thoughts! Let me tell you why…

It’s a “pick-up-and-read” daily book with a power-packed message

This is a devotional book that does not collect dust on your bookshelf. It’s a “pick-up-and-read” daily book with a power-packed message each day, for 365 days. I am amazed how spot-on these messages are. They’re not long to read but the words linger throughout the day.

It’s similar to Oswald Chambers “My Utmost For His Highest” with convincing words- for both a new Christian and a mature Christian. It’s different in the absence of the actual Scripture verse, perhaps intentionally, so the reader is not struggling with Bible translations. Instead of writing out the verse, the reader will use a Bible alongside the devotional and look up references. I found it helpful to use an electronic Bible for this purpose.

I’ve enjoyed this devotional so much it’s one of my 10 Favorite Books of the Year. Now I have a Kindle version so I can carry the devotional when I travel, a PDF version from my book review, and a hardcover to give as a gift. Yes- I do enjoy this book!

365 Gospel-Centered Devotions for the Whole Year

Mornings can be tough. Sometimes, a hearty breakfast and strong cup of coffee just aren’t enough. Offering more than a rush of caffeine, best-selling author Paul David Tripp wants to energize you with the most potent encouragement imaginable: the gospel.

Forget “behavior modification” or feel-good aphorisms. Tripp knows that what we really need is an encounter with the living God. Then we’ll be prepared to trust in God’s goodness, rely on his grace, and live for his glory each and every day.
