Destination Devos

Planning a summer trip?  Take along a Scripture passage befitting your vacation to use for devotions and prayer time (all NIV below):

In the mountains: “The mountains and hills will burst into song before you” (Isaiah 55:12).

At a lake, perhaps on a fishing trip: “They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. ‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will send you out to fish for people’” (Matthew 4:18-19).

Near an ocean or river: “Let the sea resound … let the rivers clap their hands” (Psalm 98:7-8).

In the desert: “They looked toward the desert, and there was the glory of the LORD appearing in the cloud” (Exodus 16:10).

In the woods: “Blessed is the one … whose delight is in the law of the LORD …. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season” (Psalm 1:1-3).

In the flatlands: “‘My food,’ said Jesus, ‘is to do the will of him who sent me …. I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest’” (John 4:34-35).

On a “staycation” close to home: “Love the LORD your God …. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. … Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road …. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates” (Deuteronomy 6:5-9).
