Quiet Time

March 14, 2007

Why Have a Quiet time?

First and foremost; God desires a relationship with us.

Jeremiah 24:7 “I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart..”

He wants us to know him & how do you get to know someone? You spend time with them, lots of time. Knowing God and understanding that he is the secret to peaceful & joyful living will change you forever and that can only happen if you get to know him.
Second of all, when you do spend time reading the Bible & praying, it won’t change what happens to you that day, but it will change the way you react to what happens.

Ephesians 6:11 says,
“Put on the full armor of God so that you may take a stand against the devils schemes.”

Reading his word and praying to him is one way to put on the armor & prepare us for any attacks the devil has in store for us that day. God wants to speak His blessings & wisdom to us before any attacks are thrown at us. Lastly, we need God! If we ever begin to think we really don’t need him and can do things on our own we are setting ourselves up for a fall, a hard fall.

Psalms 63:1, “O God, You are my God; early will I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.”

Our souls hunger and thirst for him, don’t let yourself get dehydrated or malnourished.
