If there is a devotion to get, it is New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp. It takes a special gift to communicate the deep things of God in a simplistic way and that is why I subscribe to his blog and read his books. He is a great communicator of the truth.

New Morning Mercies is the mercies we find in our relationship with God when we empty ourselves and pursue the truth. Each day starts with scripture and ends with a commentary. Each day you will find yourself appreciating the mercy of God.

This is a great, gospel centered devotional. My rating is simply based on comparison to my favorite devotionals. This is a good one, but I would still have a few others I would recommend before this one (namely Spurgeon's Morning and Evening).

This is the third time I have read this book. It is very good. Every day I read a short devotional on grace. That's it. Grace, grace, and more grace. This is probably the only book I would recommend people to buy lots of copies of and give them away. Really.

Many daily challenges and insights. Very readable and based on scripture with scripture suggestions daily.

A daily devotional full of truth

Paul Tripp addresses the every day truths of the Christian life with the gospel. He doesn't sugarcoat our sin but confronts with the amazing fact that God meets us there, in our sin, in our pain, and gives us mercy and grace to walk with Christ.

A wonderfu,l daily devotional that often convicted and challenged me. I liked his added passage of scripture at the end of each day for you to read and meditate on.

I'll keep this review short & sweet: I do not normally like devotionals. The multiple times I've tried one, I've found them lacking. So when I say I really enjoyed New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp, I think that should tell even those who wrestle with finding a good devotional to give this one a try. Admittedly, I missed some days but I did find that there were some days where Tripp repeated a devotional. While some may find this annoying or "lazy", I found it refreshing as I often for ...more

Devotionals can be a dime a dozen. The way they are laid out is almost as predictable as a crime show procedural. Readers know there will be an entry for each day and that the entry will not be very long. Usually there is a scripture to accompany the devotional and after each one is read a reader moves onto the next day. As a result, it is tough to add something new to the genre, but Paul Tripp does this with his yearly devotional, "New Morning Mercies." He does this by simply focusing on the fo ...more

Great devotional!

This is a book I am so glad I bumped into. I can see it impacting me already in a very positive way. I appreciate this author and the candor with which he writes.

Among the first things I do most mornings is look for the gospel trifecta of tweets from Paul Tripp. There is not much twitter activity to the former pastor, author, counselor, marriage seminar guru, but each day there are three quick reminders of the goodness of grace that is Jesus.

Tripp has gone beyond the tweets and provided a wonderful devotional resource in his latest book New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional. Crossway offered a free copy to give it a test drive so I gladly took i

Are you reminded of your need for the gospel everyday? Frankly, for most of us, the answer is we’re not. This amnesia of ours is so bad even after we know the importance of the gospel, we somehow forget all about it again. So what can we do about it?

The first step would be to get this devotion and use it. Paul Tripp has done an excellent job in this book by helping christians, young and old, to see how we need the gospel each and everyday. There is one reading every day for the whole day, and ev

On every page of this 365-day devotional Tripp reminds us of our need for God's grace every day. Covering such topics as sin, corporate worship, spiritual warfare and repentance, to name just a few, Tripp's words encourages us to set our minds on Jesus and the grace His life offers us.

Each day's devotional starts with a short soundbite that introduces the day's theme or topic. Tripp then explores it via a personal reflection using Scripture to stress the many promises that Jesus' life and death

This is a good devotional and is typical of Paul Tripp style, which is not a bad thing. It got somewhat repetitive, and since it was not based on any Bible reading program, it was not a balanced diet of the gospel the Scriptures have to offer. Yet, those things do not make it a bad devotional. It is still worth it and I will likely use it again, but those are some weaknesses to it.

Well the book was a daily devotion of praying and reflecting on being a Christian. Here are the good things.

Jan 13th God will remain faithful even when you are not, because his faithfulness rests on who he is, not on what you are doing.

Jan 29th Today your heart will search for satisfaction. Will you look for it in the creation or in relationship for the Creator?

Feb 25th You are going to hunger for some success in life. May you hunger for the complete success of the gospel in your heart.

Each morning, Paul Tripp tweets three gospel thoughts about the Christian faith on Twitter. His goal with the tweets is to confront and comfort people with the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He wants people to see that the grace of the gospel is not so much about changing the religious aspect of their lives, but about everything in life that defines, identifies, and motivates them. Through his daily tweets, he is calling people to see the gospel as a window through which they are to look ...more

Because I had something else going for the morning, I read this each evening of 2018. I can see how reading it in the morning would be better for helping the reader to focus on Gospel thinking throughout the day, but it was still meaningful.

Here is just a small sampling of the many things that stood out to me:
I want “the glory of the grace of Jesus to loom more largely than . . . the weariness of my mind” (June 8). I needed to be reminded that “corporate worship is itself a gift of grace” (June

This is the best devotional I've yet to read. Each day's read is brief enough to be accommodating to my lifestyle as a busy mom, yet still packed full of truth and thought-provoking content. Every day it felt like exactly what I needed to read because it's all straight from the Bible, the Living Word. He does share personal thoughts and challenges, but it's not a book filled with himself. It's straight Bible application. And each day has scripture passages listed to help you delve deeper into th ...more

I have thoroughly appreciated this devotional. I found myself looking forward to reading this each morning to help tune my focus for the day. I also really like that the scripture reading for the day is not a cherry-picked verse, or half a verse!, chosen and trimmed to fit; rather a meaty, contextual portion that left me many things to ponder throughout my day. I am 'prone to wander' and to become overwhelmed with life and being reminded of who Christ is and therefore who I am IN Christ has been ...more

Recommends it for: anyone who wants to grow their faith!
I am generally not a big fan of devotionals, but the last few years I am getting more out of them. This one by Paul David Tripp was really great. God used this book to meet me right where I was on certain days. Other times, quite frequently actually, the daily reading would be in line with what I was journaling or would add clarity to situations in life that I am addressing. I strongly recommend this daily devotional. As I consider which devotional to start tomorrow, I am very tempted to put thi ...more

Best Daily Devotional Ever

There are so many devotionals out there...some classic such as My Utmost for His Highest and some that will be here today and gone tomorrow. But this one will be my choice for the rest of my classic. The wisdom, depth (yet retaining humility and simplicity) and biblical truth of this book make it trustworthy and applicable to life. Every page is filled with the gospel of grace, reminding me to live in His grace each moment. I highly recommend it (and any other

A must have for any bible believing Christian who has a daily walk with God. I have found the one page devotionals are deep and promote thought, encourage, challenge and convict me in a way that grows my faith. I have read through my copy a couple of times and keep it by my nightstand. I use it in addition to my own bible study time, but if you face a busy week or time of life it can be used on it's own as daily time in God's Word.

Okay, so I am technically not finished with this one yet. But I've made it 346 days in and I feel pretty confident giving it a rating and since most folks want to have an annual devotional in their hands by Jan. 1 it made sense to jump the gun a bit. This is one of the best devotions I've ever worked through. It pushed me and challenged me in ways I wasn't always comfortable with, but it deepened my daily focus on God. Highly recommend this one.
