A devotion starts with a Bible verse and ends with a prayer, but what makes it compelling is how it shows God at work in the every day. It’s a beaded bracelet that leads to an answered prayer, a child’s remark at bedtime, a carpet sample in the back of a car. Almost two thousand years ago, two of Jesus’ followers were walking to the village of Emmaus when they were joined by a stranger. They couldn’t believe he didn’t know what had happened, how the man they thought was the Messiah was crucified and then appeared to some of the women in their group. The stranger spoke wisely and passionately to them, but not until they sat with him and broke bread did they recognize that it was their risen Lord. That’s what a devotion feels like. That moment when I get a glimpse of God’s presence.
