Even the busiest life has down-moments each day. Wouldn’t it be great to harness some of those lost minutes to get pointers and see patterns for living a different way? What if you could access timeless truths anywhere, anytime in mere moments—and conveniently meditate on God’s word throughout the day?

COMMENDED offers a single Bible verse with quick-read, practical reflections for your journey with God—delivered to your smartphone daily fone one year.
Exploring passages from every Book in both Old and New Testaments (including lesser-knowns like Obadiah and Titus), Dr. Daniel A Brown makes Kingdom principles easy to see and apply. His perspectives from decades of scripture-informed experience, also teach you how to find those principles yourself!

“After rededicating my life to Christ in 1970, I began reading five Bible chapters each day, and I got in the habit of selecting one verse to think about from what I read. Only much later did I learn that was what people called ‘meditating on God’s word.’ COMMENDED helps you follow that same pattern.” ~Daniel A. Brown, PhD

This app isn’t intended to replace your regular Bible reading, or to supplant your connection to a local church and its leaders. But if you want to develop a daily pattern of Scripture meditation, COMMENDED will focus you and give you a boost.

COMMENDED demonstrates how/why “whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” (Romans 15:4).

Exactly what I was looking for

I’m really enjoying this app. I purchased the one year subscription and love the ease of receiving daily devotions. I’ve used other daily apps like this, but Commended is the best by far. The insightful reflections on scripture, notes, and favorites functions are exactly what I need. Gets straight to the heart of exploring the Bible without distracting bells and whistles that aren’t needed. Just like today’s word - simple and spiritual!

seeking Him first

starting the day with God first with thanks and shift for a better everyday makes a huge difference for me. Doesn’t everyone want that?!

Matthew 6:33 for me, Seek first the kingdom of God and live righteously, and He will provide everything I need.

My summary of this first so that it speaks to me directly. I wake up with this every day to remind me who he is in my day to day.

Deeply spiritual and deeply practical tool

This app has been a wonderful way to start the day by meditating on a scripture and having a practical and challenging Personal application. Daniel is raw and open about his own Personal journey and makes you feel the unconditional love of God who desires to promote us to being the light to the world He created us to be!
