Quiet time. You don’t have to be around the Church or Christians very long until you start hearing people talk about having a quiet time – but you might not know what that is. It sounds nice- everyone wants a little peace and quiet every now and then, right?! What does it really mean when people talk about having a quiet time?
What does it mean to “Have a Quiet Time”?
Simply put, having a quiet time is the time that you spend reading God’s Word and praying. It is the investment time that you make in your relationship with God.
How many relationships do you know that thrive without communication? I don’t know very many. You wouldn’t like it if your spouse asked you to marry him, and then never spoke to you again! That is the same with God. In order to have a thriving relationship with God, you need to have daily communication with Him. He longs to talk to you- and to hear from you as well!
How often should I have a Quiet Time?
Quiet time should be daily. The Bible says,
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2 ESV)
In order for us to not conform to this world – which is exactly what our flesh wants us to do – we need to daily renew our mind. We need to know what the will of God is. The only way we can renew your mind and know what the will of God is is to get into the Word of God daily.
The Word of God is referred to as water. Water cleanses us – and that is very renewing in nature! We need the water of God’s Word to clean us every day!
We also need to know the will of God. The Word of God is the very mind and heart of the Lord, written down for us to have! The only way we will know it, is to read it.
Where do I begin?
Most people see the benefit of having a quiet time, but they have no idea where to begin. I can’t tell you how many emails I get asking for help with this very subject. A need was presented- and I have a solution.
