I don’t know about you, but I tend to spend more time in the New Testament so when I had the opportunity to participate in the reading and release of Devotions from Genesis and Devotions from Exodus I jumped at the chance.
Let me say this, I have not been disappointed. Nicole speaks as one who loves the Lord deeply and I’ve been drawn into these devotions by that love and her clear teaching on Genesis. (I haven’t begun Devotions from Exodus yet)
Starting at the beginning with such familiar passages as, “In the beginning God…” I thought I might skip through the first few pages, but as I began to read I found that wasn’t possible. As she explains that in these first few words we see the Trinity my attention was captured.
“In the Hebrew, God is Elohim, meaning plural, more than one-God, the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. How amazing that we see the Trinity in the very first sentence of the Bible.”
As she goes on to explain this first verse she says,
“Created in the Hebrew is bara ex nihilo, which means “created out of nothing.” God is the only one who ever took absolutely nothing and made it something.”
Nichole brings up one meaty thought after another. There is no way to read this quickly, or to skim over things since your eye will continue to be caught on deep thoughts as you read.
If you are looking for a way to learn more about our God in the Old Testament you won’t go wrong with Devotions from Genesis by Nicole.

Devotions from Genesis by Nicole Halbrooks Vaughn
See for yourself how Genesis, the book of beginnings, is not just ancient history and that the Word of God is still alive and timeless. Nicole Vaughn’s Devotions from Genesis will take you on a journey from the garden of Eden to the courts of Pharaoh in Egypt, allowing you to see your own hurts, struggles, and joys through the lives of patriarchs from Adam to Joseph. You will gain insight into your heart and more importantly, insight into the very heart of God. One day at a time, you will be reminded that you are not alone with these Devotions from Genesis.
Devotions from Exodus Part One by Nicole Halbrooks Vaughn
Devotions From Exodus Part One will take you from the bondage of the children of Israel to their freedom. The children of Israel were set free from their bondage in Egypt, and they had to learn how to live in this new freedom. As you study through these first twenty chapters of Exodus, you will see that after God delivered the children of Israel out of Egypt, he still had to get Egypt out of them. Our deliverance in Christ is no different. God delivers us from the world, but he still has to get the world out of us. We, like the Israelites, are learning to live in this freedom.
