Quick, Powerful, Thought Provoking Fuel for the Soul.
There are tons of devotionals out there. Why this one?
First, each devo makes its point quickly. The energy-starved distance runner or biker can’t stop mid marathon for a leisurely meal. More likely, he’ll down a 100 calorie energy gel, packed with carbs. Similarly, in my fast-paced life, I like a devo that makes its point quickly and powerfully, so that I can move into prayer and personal application. Hitz cuts the fluff and concisely makes his points. That’s a tribute to any writer.
Secondly, his writing flows naturally, avoiding the ostentatious adornment that many writers feel they simply must throw in.
Third, the chosen topics hit where we live – they’re practical – with lessons such as:
* Be alert to attacks.
* Find a lonely place to pray.
* Ask yourself, “What’s hindering your progress?”
