How To Have A Consistent Quiet Time with God
God longs to have time alone with you. He cares about what you are going through and how you are feeling. Therefore, when we meet with God on a regular basis we learn more about his heart, values, virtues, and character.
Setting time aside in a special place to have your quiet time with God for uninterrupted prayer and scriptural meditation is life-changing. Click To Tweet
Do you know Jesus as your personal Savior? Have you ever invited Him into your heart and life?
Pause. Pray. Take a few minutes and talk to Jesus. Tell him what is on your mind. Ask Him the really hard questions and invite him into your life. Let’s learn how to do life with Jesus walking right beside us and read his Word each day. As you read God’s Word you will be amazed how there is power in the Scriptures.
Hebrews 4:12 “ For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (AMP)

Keep your Quiet time steady and simple and ask the Lord to bless your time with Him.

Let’s pray for the Holy Spirit to help us to have a more consistent quiet time with God.
Holy Spirit, forgive me for not including You in my prayer life. It’s strange, but I didn’t realize I was ignoring You. But today is a new day. Help me. Remind me. Transform me. I give my schedule and agenda for each day. Have your way, Lord. Forgive my confusion about my purpose. I am constantly fighting my negative thoughts and doubts. Keep me close to Your heart and help me believe the promises of God are true. When the enemy tells me I’m alone and unloved, shout loudly into my heart the truth of Scripture. Remind me to meet with You every morning on a consistent basis. Reveal to me God loves, and how I am not alone. Thank You for living inside of my soul and giving me the comfort I need. Help me be more consistent with my quiet time in the name of Jesus. Amen!
