About the Book
Book: Donkey Devos: Listen When God Speaks
Author: Susan K. Stewart
Release date: July 15, 2021
Did you know the Bible mentions only two talking animals? Each of these creatures had a different message. The first to speak out was the serpent. This character certainly wasn’t a model. If God was using this snake for a test drive, I can see why he kept the mouths of the other animals closed. This snake in the grass spoke words meant for evil. Later God allowed another animal to speak—the lowly donkey. The beast of burden. This time the animal had words of wisdom.
Susan K. Stewart expected dogs, cats, and the occasional goldfish would be all the pets she’d need—until the day Susan met donkeys at a rescue center. A few years after that fateful visit, three donkeys became part of the Stewart family. Susan soon learned these humble creatures are still messengers of wisdom.
Donkey Devos is a collection of forty pearls Susan has learned from spending time learning about her equine friends and chatting with them. She uses her experiences, donkey facts, and Biblical donkey details to share the truths God has taught. The whole family will delight in the donkey tales with a message from God.
Donkey Devos Excerpt Six
- Worship time becomes too familiar. We get into ruts. Oh, we put nice names on them, like routine. But it’s actually a rut. One writer wrote about his rut of reading the Bible daily. Reading God’s Word each day isn’t a bad thing. In fact, isn’t that what we’re taught when we first start our walk with Christ? After several years, though, it becomes a chore rather than a joy. This man found the awe of Jesus walking on water gone. He was too familiar. He decided he needed to break the cycle of read, pray, repeat. He didn’t read the Scripture for several weeks and went back to it with renewed vision.
2. We think it’s about us. How often do we leave on Sunday and say, “I didn’t get anything out of today’s sermon?” Or, “The praise team keeps singing the same songs.” Complaining because we aren’t happy. The service didn’t go our way. What about all the others in the room? Did we do more than shake hands and give trite greetings? Do we breathe in the words of the songs and let them flow out to God? When worship becomes all about us, we get bored.
