Why do we get these Devotionals? Is it because the writer feels he has a stronger connection with GOD and his revelations need to be shared? Is it for recognition, money or just "down right" Pride? Or is it something else? Many years ago (during the worst times) not knowing (or caring) what the next moment would bring, GOD SPOKE..."write what I tell you". HE didn't say why or how, JUST WRITE. Unworthy, "embarrassed", unsure, the words and scriptures came everyday, and THE VOICE was to be obeyed. The words are easy to write, but sometimes it is hard to push the "send" button because of the sinfulness revealed. Perhaps we read these because they expose the truthfulness of our deepest sins, and some way they encourage HOPE AND LOVE. The thing that gives GOD GREAT PLEASURE is BELIEVING HIM and OBEYING HIM. HIS greatest "sadness" must be our not trusting HIM. Exodus 19:5, "...obey MY VOICE and you shall be MY treasured possession among all peoples..." It gives great JOY for us to share each day from an act of OBEDIENCE (when we are so disobedient in everything else). Maybe these Devotionals are nothing more, than TRUE CONFESSIONS.
