As a mother of young women, I know how important it is that they develop a life of faith and a walk with God. There are so many things out there vying for their attention and affections and I want them to be firmly rooted in the word. I find that having devotionals for young women these days is more vital than ever! We live in a scary world right now and they need to be rooted in the Word.
So I am going to share some of the best devotionals for young women for 2021 and beyond!
I find devotions for young women particularly helpful because sometimes the idea of sitting down and reading the Wordcan seem daunting for a young girl. Starting off with a devotional in the morning as an aid in reading the Word (not a replacement for it) can help them to see that God did not intend for His Word to be difficult to understand. Sometimes they just need that time to reflect on that “nugget” and learn from lessons others have drawn from Scripture.
Devotions can help them further understand areas of the Word and help them connect with it. If a devotion goes over fear, for instance, it can help young women find those verses that speak to that and they can dig deeper.
Again, while they should never be a replacement for reading and studying the Word, it can act as a guide to point them to the Scriptures that speak to the things that weigh on their hearts. It should accompany a study of Scripture, not be in place of it.

Devotionals for Young Women – Drawing Near to God
Using daily devotionals for young women helps them see that, in all things, God is in control.
Life is so full of uncertainties, especially right now, and devotions can help a young woman lean into God’s promises and feel that reassurance in the Word through these short lessons.
Devotions are also a wonderful way for young women to hide His Word in their hearts. Since they focus on particular verses, it helps to entice them to remember what those verses conveyed and to read further into it, since many devotionals encourage them to do just that; read further!
Devotions can help them to recall that verse or verses because they have developed a personal connection to it.
